So This is Madirra, unlabeled for now. This is my first attempt at making a vaguely realistic looking map. The world is inspired by and based heavily on the Planet Mars having been Terraformed. I even used this guys map (http://www.worlddreambank.org/M/MRZ.HTM) as a base to work from. Several martian features are still present in this Draft, namely Mariner Canyons and the Argyre Platinea or Sea in the other guys map. Madirra is simply a working title that sounds more original then Terra Nova or something like that. Madirra is simply a jumbled version of the Hebrew word for Mars as well. This was made with GIMP 2.8, and I used kjdavies mountain tutorial (http://www.cartographersguild.com/tutorials-how/7961-award-winner-yet-another-mountain-tutorial-using-gimp.html) as well as Making water with soft edge in Gimp (http://www.cartographersguild.com/tutorials-how/4967-making-water-soft-edge-gimp.html) by joćo paulo.

Mostly I'm looking for comments, criticism (Of the constructive variety XD ) and general input.
