That's an impressive first effort! I like hand-drawn maps. I like your coastlines, calligraphy, and icons.
Most of the more accomplished cartographers around here use Photoshop or GIMP for their mapping. Personally, I use GIMP, and I have no complaints. Inkspace is very useful for making icons and tools, and Wilbur is also useful for adding some realism to your topography.
I have before used auto realm before and I think I am going to use that for a first (very detailed) digital draft. With all of the cities and major locations of each nation and perhaps move on
to using photo shop with more detail in land high and such. Thanks for the feed back.
