View Full Version : Phon-Pok (the very first map)

05-03-2014, 06:33 PM
Ok, so here I come with my very first attempt creating a map. With GIMP and a help of some tutorials found here I've created map of the kingdom of Phon-Pok. I like working on a big maps and the isles you can see are equally the same size as Japan, so you can have some view of the rest. Few cons I can see right now:
- coastlines
- rivers arent gettin thinner
- sea may look strange

It's really my first attempt and I've created the map using clouds, something have been done wrong and I'm not really happy about the final result. I think I'm gonna start with the new map, just wanted u to share your opinions and tips what can I make better.

I have a version with lables, but they are totally bad placed, so want to share a unlabeled version here :)

(Oh and get lost with uploading a map here :P)

I think this is a very good first map. I like the texture you used for the sea, the land shape is interesting and cool. I do think your rivers need a bit more work, I can see how this would be a hard map to label but I think the labels would help make your map a little more interesting.
