if the continents are set (the most recent colors in this thread) i will start adding color over the break. the painting program i have lets me paint, but not mess up the black and white version.
think of it as the black and white version as the canvas, with a clear sheet of plastic over it. i can paint color on the clear sheet with watercolors so i can still se the canvas behind it, but to change something, all i have to do is turn off the clear layer and i can draw on the black and white version. it makes stuff really easy to do and it will not take me long at all to make the map colored.
what kind of design should we have in the background colors of the continents? solid colors? blend from dark to light? pattern? texture? other?
what do you think?
