I would like it to have a vectorized or with cartoony feel. I am not really sure which path I'll take but have been playing with some filters in PS. I'll ultimatley overlay vectors for the roads/trails and do a fair but of labeling.
Attached are a couple examples of filters I've been playing with. I like the boldness of the watercolor filter but also the distinction of the cutout. Maybe a hybrid is in order?
I'd love some feedback or suggestions about methods other people have used.
