I made this to help a friend out, starting with their wife's very lovely, hand drawn, crayon map. I used Campaign Cartographer 3 and am fairly new to it.

A good start!

All in all the map looks a little flat, though, especially in the green/meadow areas. You could try to liven it up a little by adding some trees, hills or adding some more variation to the texture. Try this map (http://www.cartographersguild.com/regional-world-mapping/20731-harkenwold-first-draft-need-some-serious-advice.html) for some inspirations.

Another thing you might want to change is the mountains. Their placement now seems to be a little random. Try to form ridges instead of just plopping them onto the grey background.

Perhaps you could also try out a different font. It doesn't have to be something fancy, but the Sans Serif font used here looks very uninspiring.
