That second one reminds me of the outline of Michigan, minus the Yoop.

I'm a big fan of archipelago style maps, with one or two larger islands and several smaller. This is what both my scenarios in the signature include, for example.

In regards to the above, the first one looks neat but I'd like to increase the height of it even more the further away we get from the sea. Proper mountains, yay!
