Hi guys,

After not having enough time to finish my Cartographer's Challenge map, I wanted to try out a new style that was less time consuming and still looked good.
I started this map Friday night and finished it on Sunday, I'm pretty happy with the results.

This is a map of a pathfinder world that I am playing in. I offered to draw the DM a map from the one he created in MS Paint - I hope he likes it! I'm attaching the original map and the political map as well. Constructive criticism is always welcome :)

Any DM worth their salt will be very pleased to have a map at all. This is a good solid map and for the time it took you to make it, this is a good showing! With some time and practice you will be making even more amazing maps, so keep up the good work. You are obviously looking at the right reference maps for this style as you have the different elements made the way I see them all over the site :)

One of the hardest parts is finishing and having the courage to post is as finished... Keep it up. Reped

This is a nice map indeed, though some of the mountains are a bit blurry. I would recommend drawing different sets of mountains to the scale you want them (rather than adjusting their size) next time. Otherwise, nice job.

This map looks pretty nice. There's only a few things that need to be tweaked in my opinion (river mouths, size differences end up in a blurry result). However i love the forest, maybe if you'd add some tree trunks, that would make it more amazing.

I really like the individual elements like mountains or the little tower. In my opinion the single elements donīt build up a whole as the colours donīt seem to fit and the different stroke sizes do not match. I would try to take down the coastline stroke and make the different colours match in saturation and brightness. Keep on going, this will be good.
