    Post Gryphon Island

    A quick map of a rocky, sparsely populated island for a gaming project I'm currently working on.

    While not overly detailed, it still provides basic information about shape and form of the landmass.

    It was done in Photoshop.

    Have some rep for posting your first map.
    I must say I really like the style and it's good to see such a simple, yet elegant map again.

    My only comment concerns the river... it's splitting and this is pretty rare in the real world. Water follows the way of least resistance, meaning one of your rivers would dry up. It's your map though, so if there is a good reason for the river splitting, by all means keep it in!

    Thanks for your input, I'll think about changing the river.

    Nice catch, G...I totally overlooked it. Why is it that you haven't been deputized yet?

    Map

    I just changed it into two separate rivers with different sources.

    Sorry for posting an altered map in the finished maps section. I hope that's ok in this case.

    You can always edit your original post and change the map. I know I do sometimes

    Anyway, good improvement.

    Thanks for the award RobA
    Now about winning those challenges... I don't think I stand a good chance at the moment. There's a lot of great talent participating, even in the light challenge. Maybe one day...
