    Default My first Map!!

    I proudly present my first Map!
    There is no name for the world, yet.

    Sadly looking at those maps I used as inspiration.

    Special thanks to:
    Gidde for the handdraw guide
    RobA for the river script
    all other for great tips, tutorials and the active WIP - Area
    Last but not least, my Girlfriend - she was really patient

    thanks!!

    Criticism and tips are most welcome!
    I don't know how to draw the North / South pole so it looks like ice..

    ps: I know it's not perfect, I finished it for now because for my next map I do some things in another way

    Very nice for a first map! No labels though? Not that you need them I suppose.

    Looks very good; the only thing I'd do different is make the rivers a little more defined. As is, they don't seem to mesh well with the style of the mountains & forests. But awesome job nonetheless; repped.

    I second Diamond, the rivers don't fit to the rest. But other wise a good map. Weiter so!

    Thanks a lot !!

    hm maybe I create the Rivers in a other way. Would like to use the Script from RobA but they should have the same color as the backgorund!
    We decide to take the outline, change it a bit, and create a new world. I also figured out why the map looks too small. In the next version I paint not with a scale of 100% but rather with 18%.

    oh yes the coastline..... I remember that pain in my ass!!!
    Hopefully the next version have one!..

    For the desert I found a solution - have to check how it looks like in detail.
    But for the pole's I still have no Idea

    Primarily I thougt I'm finish with the map, but now I see that I'm at the beginning
    I see I should create a WIP Thread.

    But it makes really fun!!
