    Map Map for unfinished novel

    I created this map to help keep me on track with my novel. I had a blast doing it, and I want to thank Ascension for the wonderful tutorial. I added a few tweaks and touches of my own, but he helped immensely with the groundwork.

    That is really nice. I dig it. Repped.

    Thanks, guys. This has been a lot of fun. I'm starting work on city details now. Here's a WIP for the first one. I'm not happy with the terrain or field textures and I still need to add the keep, but it's getting there.

    I like the city WIP. Did you use the Ascension tutorial here, too?

    Thanks! I used parts of Ascension's Fastest Town in the West tutorial (the buildings) and Flawedspirit's Land/Mountain texture tutorial. The rest of it was just messing around in Photoshop. I'm definitely learning a lot from everyone here.

    I like it. It has great potential.

    That terrain issue is probably fixable by adjusting the scale of your texture. I think the texture might be too course for the "distance" you are trying to portray.
    Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go..
