Title, good to see the whole thing now. But needs the polish. :)
Picture (top right) far better. Bottom rights sky is too light, darken that with some blue. ;)
Bridges, some of the best and really work with this style. =D>

The rest of the map, and that is everything, will need to be gone over with a fine tooth comb, changed altered and just generally brought up to standard. Sorry to be blunt about that. O:)

koontz, thanks for those...these are being worked on now... :)

Russian Jewels?? My first thought on the playable area was stained glass, but doesn't look like stained glass.

The jewels around each picture, get rid of the glow or whatever it is around them.

There is some brown protruding out from underneath the frame area, top, top left and left side.

Like the title in gold, is the rest of the frame going to be like that?

Now that you've said that, i have tried to apply a leaded glass effect on the outer regions to see what you'all think.

The jewels around each picture, get rid of the glow or whatever it is around them.

Removed, and have redone the diamonds around the pictures...with new contrast to make them a little more whitish diamonds

There is some brown protruding out from underneath the frame area, top, top left and left side.

I beleive those have been fixed.

I'm still trying to work on the gold effects..it's not working well at present and may take some time.

For now...version 13...

I'm liking the leaded glass look on the outside regions, do the rest that way and I'll give you a better answer.

These two areas, the borders look like you did them twice and didn't quite get them exactly the same.

This one now goes up instead of down! :lol:

Are they too small or too big for leaded glass?

I don't really see leaded glass in it. Maybe if there are some colour variation within a bonus it would look more natural.

The gold ring looks good btw. Integration with the theme could possibly be that the ring was originally full but there are some gaps in it from wear and tear.

glad you like the gold ring, but what do you mean by the rest?

If it is a gold ring on a window it is more logical if it was originally fult closed. If the edges of the gaps are not so round but broken pieces it might look more natural. Some cracks or dirt or pieces of lead might do the trick.
