first attempt. nothing special, pretty much just some variations to saderan's tutorial. honestly not sure what to do with it now other than give it a more unique look.

You need to put ### Latest WIP ### before each work-in-progress image, as I've edited in for you. You also need a title for the thread, so I know what to call it when I put the voting poll up. Let me know what you want to call it and I'll fix the thread title.

As far as other things to put on the map (which looks pretty good, by the way), what about cities, towns, castles, borders, roads, an outer decorative border, a compass rose, some heraldry?

cool.. thanks!

i'm not sure what to name it yet, but i'll come up with something.

i'm working on a compass rose now, so we shall see what else i come up with for making it a little more interesting.

Looking really good; I like that border. Fixed your title also.

Agreed, the border complements the map well.

That's very pretty. I think it'd look better without the black frame, or maybe just a very thin one… but great job nonetheless.

thanks. i wanted it to look like an old sheet of parchment, and the black border worked best for burning the paper edges. i had tried cropping it down and I didn't really like the result. so short of having it sit on a wood desk or on top of a pile of more parchment (school just started and I have no more time), I opted to keep the black. just pretend it's mounted in a dark room in a museum. ;)

It has a nice mood, professional shading and interesting textures.
