Looks like a good start. Maybe a CL could move this to the regional world mapping forum so that you could get some feedback :)

I assume it's a global-scale map, and the scale confirms that, so you're doing something right in the continent shapes.

I do notice the coastlines seem squashed to fit the page at the top. That reminds me of how the Earth looks in a cylindrical equal-area projection, which raises the question - What projection is this supposed to be? It looks like the landmasses wrap around west-to-east, but the aspect ratio of the whole map is odd if it's supposed to represent a whole spherical surface.
