Found the cartographer's guild at deviant art for searching on creating fantasy game maps.
i'm a scholar on architecture as master of arts and currently working on a map of northern mythodea. not to forget, my hobby is LARP ^^

nevertheless i'm completely new to creating maps and trying myself around... i would like every help, critique and comments about my work =D

Attached my currently work in progress on that map...
I'm using Autocad, illustrator and photoshop

If you're making maps like that I think you should be teaching us! Welcome to the Guild and looking forward to seeing more of your maps!

Actually, there are quite a few people in the guild from Germany and also other German-speaking regions like Austria, the Free State of Bavaria and even my own not so free state of Franconia.

So ... Gruß Di' Gott und willkommen. Nix für Ungut!

Welcome to the Guild - I live in Berlin myself.

And nice map, indeed. There's one river violation I see, the south-southeastern river crossing the mountains, but I am guessing the area SE of the mountains is supposed to be a highland? If not, then you'll probably want to create a small gap in the mountain chain to represent a valley or canyon or somesuch.

Ehm, the map's not nearly done so there are many undone parts which are to be edited. the whole southern darker area will be filled with mountains.
I'll post the WIP in the Mapmaking Discussion Section. Currently i'm waiting for it to be checked by a moderator.

No problem, that's just the only thing I noticed.

Oh, I just love the colour scheme you used. Nice map to introduce yourself.

Und viele Grüße aus dem südlichen Deutschland.

Hallihallo =D
looking at just a small part up to now at the tutorials I'm very curious about everything here!

Does somebody know how long it normally takes for a WIP-thread to be unlocked by a moderator in the Mapmaking Discussion & Philosophy (WIP/Critique) Section?

Well, far as I can tell, it's always unlocked! And welcome to the guild, that's a nice map. I *was* going to mention the transmontane river, but I've been beaten to it. So I'll just mention horror vacui and suggest leaving a bit more sea in the west, to give the map some more breathing room. :)

Des is' fei schee! No aaner aus unnernm scheenen Franggnlond!

For those who do not know the joy of living in Franconia, translated:

That's great. Another one from our beautiful Franconian land.

Happy weekend everybody!
