I have been a member of this community for a while looking at and using some of the maps in games I have been running. I must say that I really appreciate all of the artists here and that I have finally mustered the courage to attempt to join your ranks. So this is my first map I used Ascensions' Tut on the Atlas Style. I have to thank Ascension for the walk through I wouldn't have known where to start. I hope it is not to horrible but I would love feedback on what all of you think.

Thanks,
Able

Why horrible? Its a good start into Mapping. The only critic i have is, let more Space in the Northern Sea so your Title don't look so crashed against the border of the Map.
Perhaps try to aply some textures from cgtexture or just google Maps. Its adding character and Break the repeating patterns.

Looks promising. Another thing that'd improve it is a look at Redrobes' tutorial on river placement (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?3822-How-to-get-your-rivers-in-the-right-place). I assume the dark traces are rivers -- they are doing some wonky things not very plausible.
