    That would be an understatement.

    Secondly, they're salty. Though I don't understand the complaint about lack of freshwater? Evaporation from the ocean rises against windward mountain slopes, condenses, falls as snow, and then melts as riverwater, which is the main supply of freshwater (in the real world, at least). Also, the middle mountain range is sort of supernatural and is constantly under heavy snowfall.

    Well, the way you have the map drawn, it looks like this bit of land is just a cluster of Islands, so those three lakes you have in the middle don't look like they would be able to supply all of the cities (towns?) across the land mass.

    You also have a tonne of cities (towns?) no-where near any mountains for run-off.

    However, I'm not a Geography major or anything, so theirs a good chance I'm missing something.

    Of course, we ARE talking about a magical world here (we are, arn't we?) which makes this whole argument sorta moot...

    Edit: Also, many deserts don't feature dunes/sand at all, but instead just have a rocky surface because of lack of minerals. Something to think about for your cover. (in terms of composition/design that is. Not saying there's anything wrong with having dunes, just that their are a few more choices that, if done right, could be more interesting than the concept you currently have.)

    Fuck it, dude; I like it.

    For criticism,: I'm not really wild about the way you did the eyes on your characters and am not sure what the blue squiggle right of the kid's shoulder is.

    It's not the most sophisticated or polished style in the world, but it seems similar to some other stuff I've seen in children's books, and I think it's kind of cute and evocative in a way that some much more polished and slickly-executed artwork isn't for me.

    The undoubtedly talented posters here, I think, can probably offer some useful pointers if they're in the mood to be constructive, but I wouldn't let them discourage you if they're just being ornery.
