Well, howdy folks, I've been lurking around this forum for a little bit, using bits and pieces of tutorials to make little sketches of coastlines and the like, when a friend saw my work and asked me to make a map for him- this is the result so far.

Luckily, the friend wanted a Pangaea type world, so this made filling in the water a lot easier.

Then, I made some mountains.

Suggestions, critique and ideas on the map would be much obliged.

Hi foolas, your posts were held in moderation because you're a new user and your posts contained a number of links...I've approved one of them (assuming the other is a copy).

Oh, alright. The other was a copy- I had assumed it was a problem on my side that it didn't get posted.

Well, I redid most of it, and got this:

I /may/ have overdone the bump map a little.

Finished- the friend I made this for didn't want me to compass rose it or label it.

Actually, the colors are a bit too bright and garish, now that I revisit it- methinks I may go back and kind of fade it out. My friend was happy with this, but I no longer am. Does anyone have any other critiques/thoughts for next time?
