    Map First post, Map made with Saderan tutorial

    So, this is my first post here, although i've been a member of the guild for more than a year.
    I have been making maps for about a year now, for my dnd campaign.
    This is a map i created with the tutorial that Tear provided to the forum.

    easy to read, easy to make!!
    Thanks Tear!!!

    Nothing to get anxious about it looks great. The textures are very nice and I really like your rivers (I am not a fan of a "stroke" around rivers but that;s just my personal preference") Have some rep for a VERY nice first map post.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    It's an excellent rendition of the style (and it's a pretty style). One suggestion I might make is that your mountain chains are a little straight in places. The one just below center towards the right is about as straight as I would expect mountains to be; the one just above-left of center is much straighter than I might expect. Then again, mountains vary widely, and it's tough to make much in the way of judgements without a good scale on the map.

    Welcome - that's a nice intro map! Is it a part of your game world, or a standalone work ?

    Thanks everyone for the replies!!
    @jbgibson it is a standalone map, just practising the style with Tear's tutorial, feel free to use it if you like it in your campaign or story
    @waldronate yeap, you are right, the mountains are a bit straight, mainly because i had no idea what part should i pay emphasis on while creating them.
    i ended up redoing them at the end, just to give them a more realistic feel, and more texture.
    @jtougas YAY! thanks for the rep (no idea what it is and how to use it )
    im not a fan of the river style in this map, but it was the best i could do with the tutorial give by Tear (and using a mouse)

    thanks for the feedback everyone, i am currently doing another map, so i will post things here, or in another post.
    Might do a WIP thingy, although im not quite sure how to
