Something bothers me in the image of the village in the new swamp (awesome in any other aspects) : there is something floating in front of the village.
Is it a fisherman's net ? Some flag ? The trace of my dirty cursor on the screen ? I can't tell but I do not think it is so graceful.
Wouldn't it better if there only a dock with nothing on it ?
Not that I am a art contributor or anything ... ;)

Now that you mention it, yours looks better actually. I also cant figure out what that grey thingy is supposed to be, looks a bit like a net.

IMHO, it must be a net. But it isn't done that well.

I always assumed it was a big spiderweb. In that case, it would kind of fit for undead villages.

It is supposed to be a fishing net. If somebody likes to improve it, he's welcome to do so. The version without the net is a bit too empty imho.

Maybe there could be a ladder? Or a kind of boat below the hut so the inhabitants can move around?
