Sorry cairns, but this is the first chance I have had to come and really look at the map since you did you the rings again. You are right, I did say the title was nice, and I still think it is nice. The rings are also nice, so is the frame. I have no problem with any of these elements of the map individually, it is just when all three come together, he lighting looks off.

koontz...
the frame is a bevel at 360 degrees...if i change it to 270 degrees the framework looses its 3D dimension on the sides to a very weak 3D dimension at the bottom and top edge only...very poor result. Also i cannot apply the same gold colouration to the frame and then apply the bevel since the bevel does not take on the gold colouring as in the rings.

the ring and image frames have a gold 2 colour 3 range spread plus a slight contour applied to the outer edge. it is too small to have any bevel dimension to it.

the title is created in another process in Corel Paint via a bit map, and yes it is lit from the bottom where it achieves the best effect.

I'm sorry they don't look the same. :)

Refresh your screen, and U will see a very slight inner shadow around the oval of the map to create a slight raised centre image. :)

not arguing for arguing, but what is the small "thing" under Nagornyy in legen? I mean "thing" dirrect under "g". I can not see something similar anywhere.
I like this new version. maybe the impassable gold circle could has a little less light?

Refresh above, the thing was a hang-over from the bevel process...now gone...but i like the gold as it highlights the impassables.

I don't get the lighting complaint? I feel like even if there were different angles of light it would fall into the whole "jewel" theme anyways. I have to say I just don't see a problem and I am one picky SOB. :P

Version 28 Small and Large.

1. All gold images now have the same lighting...completely re-worked in illustrator and imported as .pngs to CD
2. title re-worked
3. image holders re-worked
4. impassables re-worked
5. the back frame is not going to be done in the same gold effect as the other gold title and image holders, as it would be too much for the eye and over-ride the map.
6. i hope this now satisfies for stamping. :)
