The general size, shape and variants of each give them a good look overall.
Some ideas to improve them.
When you get the layout of them finalised, get some shadow put onto them.
Make the smaller mountains a different colour. Go into GIMPs colour tad and change the hue. Make the smaller ones more green and the mid level ones an in between colour. Then when you copy and paste them back in, take into account the colour. You can have the large ones at the back with a mid sized or a few smaller ones in front to give the appearance of depth to the range.


Cool, thank you sir.

I remembered what I was thinking about when I was looking to make this map. As you know it's been found that the people of the Island used up all of their natural resources making and transporting the statues (specifically all of the trees to roll them), which ultimately lead to their demise and extinction from the island.

You could do something like dust bowl where all of the forrest sections, and other natural resources are decay. Kind of like Antarctica, but without the ice,etc.

Any way just some food for thought.
