View Full Version : My first map!

I'm proud to present my first map, the region of Erath! I love the more artistic style (as opposed to accuracy) and it seemed simpler than trying to do a more accurate looking map so I thought it would be a good starting point. I made this primarily to learn how to use GIMP so I'm probably going to abandon it at this point and start on something else. Any critiques or advice is most welcome. :)

Nice map! I like the rough and hand-painted looking style, especially when displaying the map zoomed out a bit. Sadly there's a glaring river violation present - the rivers are splitting rather than joining as they flow downwards from the mountains.

Very good for a first map. Ghostman said what I was going to say about the rivers. Nice.
