I'll update this tomorrow, when I have some more sleep, but for now, Vahren is a enclosed world, where only the land inside the great mountain range is safe, everything outside of said range is so vicious, large, and destructive that it is nigh impossible to live out there.

Original drawing on paper:
54965


What I've done so far:
54966
(The long rectangle will eventually be a large wall blocking off that section of the savage wilds from the civilized/peaceful area.)


This is for a Savage Worlds campaign i'm running with a few friends.
More details will come, as soon as I have the time.

Very Impressive! I like the ranges, and the hills. They comein very naturely. I am already sure to rep it when its finished.

I've decided to go with a different kind of river, more... Uhh, realistic, and less cartoony, I suppose.
I've also begun fiddling around with colors, along with forests, as you can see.
(Note: I didn't upload the whole map, as it's too large, so, you get to see the Valley (And some other pats of the map) that is home to the great Vampiric Dynasty, whom once nearly ruled the world.)

I have a minor nitpick, but it's one that you may already be aware of and will clean up in the next stage(s): The 'back' part of the forests - the side that faces away from the viewer. Right now, the length of the sketched in trees at the forest border (for lack of a better description) is the same as the front side, giving each woodland the illusion that it is a fence or a hollow bowl. Does that make sense? And like I said, it may be corrected in later stages anyway.

I agree with the others. This one has a lot of potential and looks good so far! Have you thought to add a couple of small lakes along the rivers?

It's looking good, I have a question about the river that drains the central valley. It looks like it forks and drains into two drainages (one to the east and one to the south).

The east-most river, I assume? It doesn't split, it just goes off the map for a bit, and curls back into view.

Diamond, you'll have to expand a little on that, do you mean it should be larger at the back, or shorter in the back? To make it look less like a bowl/fence-thing. (Also, not done with this yet, still have to do detail on the forest.)

Viking - I've been thinking about doing that, since there's not many lakes currently, and thanks. (There're only large lakes, so far, so I'll need a few small ones.)

Max, thanks, I hope it turns out great :D

I looked back are your first map and I understand now. I didn't realize that you haven't colored your sea's yet. I was looking at the coast line as a river and I couldn't make heads or tails of it.

Oh. Well, that would be one strange, gargantuan, and large river. :P

Evile: I meant it should be shorter in the back. But the more I look at it, the more I think you meant it more as a preliminary sketch than the final illustration. So carry on my good man! :D
