    Map Tensaria

    This is actually my second attempt at a map for a D&D campaign setting that I'm working on. This map shows the continent of Tensaria, the western most part of the continent of Ghalistar, which I'll probably work on next, and the Kentari Refuge. I made it in photoshop using Ascension's atlas style map tut, and tried to make it my own. I think the map serves its purpose, lemme know what you think

    :Edit:
    I gave the blue an outerglow, and it seems to stand out more. I'm not sure if I'm going to put in a map key though.

    I like it. Very wild landforms

    I think you have a typo on the westernmost continent...i guess you meant tiefling not teifling (considering that you make a D&D worldmap).

    The only thing that jumps out at me is the blue text is hard to read when over dark terrain. You could add a white or yellow outer low around those words.

    Overall I think this turned out quite well

    ...I'm with Ascension on the blue colored labels - they are a bit difficult to read.

    Wow! That is a great map! I really like how you named your kingdoms! I wish I could do cartography such as this style. However, I always feel the need to do every little detail of each environment.

    The map looks pretty good. I really like the way the landmass is designed. leaves space for a lot of nooks and crannies where you can put adventures. I also think that the blue text is a bit hard to read. may want to add a light glow to make it stand out a bit.
