    Map Edwan

    Hi!!! This is the first map i have finished. The continent is called Edwan and I'm using it for something I've been trying to write.
    I think it's good, but I always think everything is good, so I want your opinion

    Hi Rihlan, it looks good. 2 things I'll comment on - the border could use some work (and you need a compass and a scale) and I personally don't like having the name of the city on both sides of the city - it breaks up the reading. Ravells posted a document about how to enter names on maps some weeks ago, there you can get some good hints of what to do. But really nice looking and have some rep for your first upload.

    The solid blue text is nice but the others have an outline and that makes them difficult to read when using thin fonts. The rhumb lines are a lil blocky so you could probably blur that out a bunch then reign it back in with some contrast/brightness tweaks (put the black rhumb lines on a layer of white altogether first). Otherwise, pretty nice looking map.

    I agree with my fellow cartographers about the details, but otherwise a fine map. Maybe the forest borders look a little bit to clean.
