View Full Version : Scale Situation

Hey Fellas. What's up?

So I'm making a map and I think it's pretty awesome etc. But I'm having a little problem with the Scale.
I show it to a friend and he was like "Dude, everything is too close" and then I said "What scale do you think it could be?", and que said "I have no clue, but this one is too close".

So what did I think? "Which site has the best drawnings and experts in Cartographies?" (yeah, I'm kissing your ass, Cartographers).

Here's the Map, please give me your opnions and tips. I have no sense of "Scale".


**Thanks Gidde for the hint.

At first, the coastlines look like whole continents. Then I see the stylized mountains and forests, and they suggest a smaller scale. I mean, a smaller area represented, not a smaller scale ratio.

I second triplicate. mountains/forests seem to be different scale that coastlines/rivers. good coastlines though.

So what do you guys think? What should I do to make my map a regional map, instead of a mixed up map?
Should I re-make the coast line/rivers or the forests/montains?

The forests/montains should look smaller or the rivers bigger and the coast line smooth??

Don't be shy fellas, I'm taking and suggestions. :)

You'll probably get more feedback if you upload the image using the forum's tools, rather than an image hosting site (they're rife with popups and a lot of folks don't/can't click off-site). To do so, click "Go Advanced" at the bottom of the reply (or edit) window, then use the Attachment Manager that's down the page a bit.
