Fictional map I made on GIMP. Hope you like it!

Pretty good for a first map! Got a nice texture and feel overall. Seems to get across all the necessary information. I would recommend looking at some of the tutorials here, as they would help you in the future to refine your work. Gidde and Arsheesh have some good forest tutorials, and there are several good ones for mountains. I am partial to kjdavies' myself.

First map in first post - that boldness and willingness to participate warrants a smidgen of rep, it does. Thank you, and welcome!

And indeed, it's a creditable effort. Does it satisfy you? Can you define things about it you'd like to improve?

Welcome to the Guild Zachary, and as Saraphine and Jbgibson have already mentioned, not bad for a first map. Have a look at some of the other tutorials on offer here, you will likely discover more tips and tricks to map-making.
