After using CC3 for some time, and feeling that I lacked some control over my overland mapping, I decided to give mapping with PS a shot. Been a person that cannot even draw a stickman with a gun to my head, I read up on a lot of tutorials, tried something here and there and ended up with the WIP you see under here.

There is still much I have to learn how to do, as an example, I dont really have a clue how to get a fitting mountain in this map, and I do feel that the forrest is a bit off. But all in all I can feel that PS is a piece of software I can get comfortable with over time. (And thanks to the accademic version I can actually afford it!)

If someone has any suggestions, feel fre to fire away, as I really want to get better in PS and cartography :)

Edit: oh, and the names are just placeholders from testing out photoshop labeling

I like the coloring fading into the barren lands. The rivers do seem a little strange in the forests though. Not that I have any clue mind you! :)

Yeah, I noticed that there were something there as well after I posted it, will prpbably be pretty easy to fix when I am back on my regular machine.

Edit:
added the newest WIP
Tried to stuff some mountains and other little tweaks in there, and realizing that it rather crude when zoomed in (I did a lot of the work on an 11" screen on a couch, so most was done zoomed out)
Still not perfect, but I feel I am getting more and more familiar with photoshop.
