This is the first map I make using wilbur, I can't believe I didn't knew such software existed. I am currently working on adding all the labels. Any feedback is appreciated.

The first one is the world map, the second and third are part of a failed attempt, the rest are the progress of the current map

Those are awesome mountains and colors. Looks just like something I would see on a satellite photo. Did you only use Wilbur, or did you have to do a lot of photoshop too?

This is just a part of an entire world map I made. I started with photoshop to create a (VERY) rough heightmap, then I used wilbur to erode the map and shape the mountains and add the basic colors, finally I used photoshop for the ocean and the two color variations (arctic to the north and shrub land to the south). But even with all that, wilbur did all the heavy lifting.

Unfortunately I will remake the ENTIRE thing, I rushed to make this one and didn't take into account polar distortion, tomorrow I will make a new equirectangular map but with stereographic projections for the poles, Then I will stitch them together so that in the future I can just grab whatever part of the map I want without worries.

Here's the new regional map, opted for a more rustic style instead of the realistic style of before

very nice. i like the borders too, though theres some intermittent gaps between them that really show - try fill them in

My tablet broke and I'm working with a mouse *sigh*, so I decided to remake the borders and finish the map on illustrator

Just finished the borders and I'm beginning to add labels and locations

EDIT: How many labels and markers do you think are too many or too little?

*sigh*? I'm doing all my stuf with a mouse! :D

Btw nice job. Regarding the scale of the map, I guess you add more labels on it without problem

The problem is not having to use a mouse, the problem is having to use a mouse after being used to a tablet. And thank you :)

no such thing as too many labels (then again i am a label junkie and love old maps with more labels than land :p)

the map's looking very nice

Ok, finished marking most southwestern places, including walls and ruins, that's kind of the density of labels and markers I will be handling throughout the entire map
