I proudly present my first Map! :)
There is no name for the world, yet.

Sadly looking at those maps I used as inspiration. ;)

Special thanks to:
Gidde for the handdraw guide
RobA for the river script
all other for great tips, tutorials and the active WIP - Area
Last but not least, my Girlfriend - she was really patient :D


Criticism and tips are most welcome!
I don't know how to draw the North / South pole so it looks like ice..


ps: I know it's not perfect, I finished it for now because for my next map I do some things in another way :)

Very nice for a first map! No labels though? Not that you need them I suppose.

Looks very good; the only thing I'd do different is make the rivers a little more defined. As is, they don't seem to mesh well with the style of the mountains & forests. But awesome job nonetheless; repped.

I new at map making myself so good job. I think the only thing missing is a coastline.

I second Diamond, the rivers don't fit to the rest. But other wise a good map. Weiter so!

Thanks a lot !!

hm maybe I create the Rivers in a other way. Would like to use the Script from RobA but they should have the same color as the backgorund!
We decide to take the outline, change it a bit, and create a new world. I also figured out why the map looks too small. In the next version I paint not with a scale of 100% but rather with 18%.

oh yes the coastline..... I remember that pain in my ass!!!
Hopefully the next version have one!..

For the desert I found a solution - have to check how it looks like in detail.
But for the pole's I still have no Idea :?

Primarily I thougt I'm finish with the map, but now I see that I'm at the beginning:blush:
I see I should create a WIP Thread.

But it makes really fun!!

Sapiento: Donk da sche, das i do an londsmonn find hätt i nia gmoand :D :D - Dad mi gfrein amoi a bissl via PM zschreim!..
