This is my second map. Like my first map (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?19298-First-Map-Map-of-Elenthro-Uden), it is for a random fantasy universe of my own design. This time, I have tried to incorporate hand-drawn effects via custom brushes in GIMP.

I have only finished the first continent (more or less).
Please tell me what you think!

Well, I like what you've done for El Dunaven - the city. It's an interesting approach using a bunch of buildings, instead of just one or three in an icon. It makes it look like you can kind of explore that area.

I'd try to blend the background 'ocean' fractal with the islands more - right now they are sharpkly divided from it by their strong outlines that have a very different texture from the ocean.

Did you draw those mountains? I like it anytime people add hand drawn touches like this, it gives the map an artistic touch.
