Finished my first map!

Created In: Photoshop CS4

Thanks to Tear for Saderan Tutorial, which helped a lot to get up to speed with mapping basics. Originally I was hoping to make the map in 19th century style like these maps (http://maps.bpl.org/search_advanced/?mcid=15), but after working on it for a while I decided to stick to the current style. The borders took the longest time to make, and I still need to figure out how to draw nice dotted, dashed, and dashed-dotted lines. I also need to work on speeding up drawing the inner glow on the borders, as it was the most tedious part of the drawing process.

A larger version of the map is available here (http://i.imgur.com/Sa7No.jpg), and is also attached. There's also a story (http://realmsoftryed.blogspot.com/2011/05/demons-of-tryed-chapter-1-first-steps.html) about the history of rise and fall of demons in the continent of Tryed to go with the map; the map is intended to represent the lay of the land at the time of demons' arrival.
