View Full Version : Amn - Forgotten Realms (My First Map)

06-02-2011, 05:14 PM
Hello everyone. This is my first real map, and I'm looking for some feedback. I've attempted (and failed) at creating maps in the past, but this one seems to have been largely successful.

The map is a regional area of the Forgotten Realm's setting centered on the nation of Amn. It adheres very close to the original. I used Gidde's Tutorial Hand-Drawn Mapping (for the Artistically Challenged) (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10655-Hand-Drawn-Mapping-(for-the-Artistically-Challenged), which was awesome and helpful. I had some minor issues, but ultimately I am pleased with the end result. The map was created entirely in GIMP.

I am including both my map and the original.
