Looks good, but I'm not sure what's going on in the lake there




Unpainted stuff, mostly. The alien looks like a neat design, but it's all a bit indistinct. A couple more colours probably wouldn't hurt. :P

decided to try something unorthodox from the feedback given by the first map.

World Map 3.0:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

the only thing im not sure is the climatic zones. since everything is located at the edges. the dimensions of the continents also seem bigger due to how poles tend to be stretched in flat maps. they surely look smaller in a sphere.

just the island continents on each side of the map are roughly the size of Australia (or even Greenland).

Does the map of topographic elements or are those rings alternating bands of land and water. My bad if it's neither bud, but it's bit hard to decipher everything on the map.

not sure where are you pointing in the map. but all the landmasses have elevation. if its the island at the right its because its my first attempt at drawing the map of a crater.

some flavor text:

yellow: desert
light green: grassland
light green + yellow: savannah
light green + dark green: rainforest
dark green + light green: temperate woodland (color order defines primary climate)
dark green: boreal forest
white: snow, ice cap

Think I'm homing in on a definitive style I want to do these in. Some tweaks and more practice and I think I'll be ready to start making my own designs like this :D

Damn, Jopax, just... Damn.
I wish I wasn't as lazy as I am to upload some of the stuff I have been doing recently. Not exactly "shaolin training in the mountains" kind of material, but still, a little bit something every now and then.

Besides Imgur, what other websites do people use here to link/upload stuff? I have seen some use DeviantArt, but I'm hesitant to go there myself before getting to know better alternatives.

Thanks, and now for something completely unrelated:

JOPAX YOU GLORIOUS BUTT

Now i want to see banana weapons in For Honor. :v
Also that mecha is baller as fuck, nice job bro!

colored version of the worldmap. still not sure on the climate distribution, i tried my best i think

That little island in the bottom is hella unrealistic but dammit i want to see that in reality. My plate tectonics knowledge is rather rusty, so i can't speak for exactly how realistic the map is, but overall it seems believable, so that's cool. Colouring that ocean has to have taken forever, kudos on having the patience for that. :P

Ooo, swooshy! I have a soft spot for swooshy things, and the lighting's on point, so how can i not like this? :v

The mountains in the background are very nice, but m8, there is one thing i would really like to see from you, and i'm going to put it bluntly: plz shaed less with low opacity black and white brlrglblg. If my eyes aren't deceiving me, you didn't use straight black for the mountains, and it looks really good that way. Now, i know working methods are very different, but don't be afraid of using solid colours for shading, you can smooth the borders afterwards. Allow me to deploy an example banana due to Jopax influencing my mind:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Exactly what brush/opacity you use isn't that important (i used pressure sensitive on the left, fixed 50% on the right, i personally find it nearly impossible to mask the thousands of brush strokes with the former), it's more about deliberately picking the shades you use. I'm a lazy shit, i only picked three shades for the banana up there and interpolated between them, but apparently it kinda works. :v

also here have a dog

Edit: also possibly relevant info: Shadows tend to be bluish (well, predominant ambient light colour, really) and desaturated, midtone is the most saturated colour, and light is also desaturated and tinted towards the source of light.

You're correct, and just made me realise I completely forgot to colour some of the shading*. Some parts are probably a little bit your eyes deceiving you though, because a lot of the highlights are quite a light blue and a lot of the shadows are ruddy. Some of them aren't, though!

Feedback much appreciated!

* My current workflow for shading is to work mostly in values and then work the colours later. I forgot the second step.



Edit: Finally got to sit down and start the next piece I've been wanting to do for a bit. Back on the git gud grind, since I'm clearly not gud.  This one will make Comrade Shook happy! :P
