Dear cartographers
after some time from my registration let me give a brief introduction of myself
I live and work in Italy and started drawing maps of imaginary places since I was 9, more or less
I'm not so good at using graphic software (my area of expertise is more on dumb structured data for business applications ...), but I find that Campaign Cartographer is a good way to start, specially with the annual add-ons
I am attaching to this post a first tentative of map, using CC3 and the Modern Political Maps add-on. I would appreciate receiving your comments, both positive and negative
bye

I certaintly don't have anything negative to say as this map really looks good. Perhaps if you've a mind to add details you could label the highways and major features such as large train stations and airports. :)

Thanks for the comment; I am still working on the map and designing appropriate shields for highways

Oh I like the simple style. Its letting so much space for informations and Icons. Are you mappen also more Islands or another Land? or is it only base on this locations?

I have been creating my own World since I was 8 too. Arden is now 20 years old :D

Dear Schwarzkreuz
thanks for your comment
Let me express my congratulations for your awesome gallery! all of the maps are very cool and well done
I wish I had your skills ..
In the past I have been creating a number of fictional countries (mostly islands) but on paper, and the majority of them has been lost in the movings
The map I posted is the first I am able to prepare electronically in a sort of decent way (yet again, my skills in computer graphics are definitely poor..); I plan to catch up as time permits
