That looks lovely Ed! I can't say that precisely was what inspired it but I did try to make it looks sort of like a plant.
Ian I know exactly what you mean and that's why I had my doubts. I've decided to keep the islands for now and I'm trying to shove as much interesting stuff as possible ON TOP of them instead. I've also toned down the clouds, meaning I've tinted them towards the background color to make them less noticable.
