Hello,

Earlier I posted my sons first map. It was made in CC3. I really liked the ease use for his map, but I wanted to try my map in PS...

I am an absolute beginner at map making and PS!

I followed one of the tutorials that was posted by Jezelf. I'm sure that I didnt do things right, but it took me a while to do so I wanted to get some feed back on it. things on it arent geographically correct so Ill take any input that you all have.

This isnt a world that I thought up, I just wanted to try CS4 out and see if I could do it.

Here is my map:

looks great! love the water texture.

are those grey lines roads, rivers, or borders?

Thanks!

I tried to make them rivers but i couldn't get them to be colored.

I like the overall shape of the land masses and the colors are good (except for the rivers). You have a good start here.

One thing I would suggest is to decrease the bevel on the land, it looks like everything has cliffs (unless that's what you intended :)).

Also some of your rivers do some strange things, such as going from 'ocean to ocean'.

Thanks for the input. I wasnt too sure about the river placement. Also i was trying for a 3D look but i guess i took it too far.
