    Default First New Map In A Long Time

    First New Map In A Long Time-nesmapstart.jpg

    So I've not made a map in a few months, but made one the other day for a game I am moderating. There is more to it (a whole eastern side of the world, in fact), but I am not posting it in case my players make it onto these forums. One thing I don't really like are the borders, which I guess I can make fancier at a later date.

    If possible try a brushset that have more variations in styles than those. You have only a few variation so its looking a bit monoton. I think you could also put up a lot of Atmossphere with Icons Names and little symbols.

    Something I would suggest as well, try adding more of a texture to the various landscapes, at this moment it feels kind of flat to me. Also for coloring the landscapes, maybe try layering colors to give a subtle gradient between the various landscapes.

    Apart from that, it looks good.
    Cheers,

    Thanks for all the advice--this is probably much better off in the "WIP" section
