    Map Denoril, The Land of 5 Provinces

    This is a commission I filled a couple months ago for a writer named Aaron Bunce. He needed it for a book he was writing called "Within" (you can find it on iTunes actually) and liked my previous work. This is my first professional piece and I'm really proud of how it turned out! I made it in photoshop using my bamboo tablet.

    Not to say that your waterway is impossible in real life, but it's highly improbable. Common sense would suggest that the water from Bardtown should flow southward because it's so close to the sea. Since it's not the case, it means that the land near the sea have a high elevation that prevent the water from flowing in that direction. Water should always flow in the shortest route possible, unless there is an obstacle.

    The same logic apply between the two central lakes.

    The writer had drawn a sketch of what he wanted featured and that included the rivers and mountains as depicted. I can't say I've ever given real thought to river creation, although I've been told something about the way they flow in respects to their relation to the equator. I can't remember the lesson however haha.

    I don't think the equator has something to do with this

    no your are right but it's in the ocean. Rivers don't have such circular current.

    No I don't think it has any relevance to it either, but for purposes in the story these rivers had to be where they are

    I like it. I think it's pretty neat looking, and it looks like it belongs on the inside front cover of some graphic novel that I might pick up. Great work!
