    Map First map in Gimp

    First map ever made by me, actually.. Setting for a D&D campaign. And YES, I know the hydrography is all wrong, I should (and will) fix it.. Made following the awesome tutorial by Gidde. Any suggestion/critics are more than welcome!

    Looks really good, and your hydrology looks fine, that one part I can see as wrong I can easily except as representative of a river delta.

    Wow, fantastic job on your first map Rackhir, perhaps one of the best Gidde style maps I've seen.

    Cheers,

    Pray tell me.. What were the brush settings for the line by the border? They look absolutely lovely.

    A small suggestion about typography - I know many old maps had odd letter spacing, and if that is the look you want, it's fine. But I find at least titles to be worth hand-kerning to get the spacing just right. My guess is the overhanging l and left-extending y have added up to an unintentionally wide space. That's nitpicking though - the whole map is nicely done.
