(WIP) My first map
I've just started writing a fantasy novel, well it's been in progress for 15 years but I decided to do a proper map so thanks to the guidance of Kindari and Ascension I've been working on my first map. It's not finished but I have redone it so here are my two maps. The first was my first attempt which I will not be finishing and the second is the one I am aiming to complete.
You're making good use of those tutorials. Is this map a view of an entire world from pole to pole?
Looks very interesting so far!
What software do you use?
In Photoshop there are some great ways to "blend" layers and patterns, so the textures get more subtle
As madcowchef mentioned, the scale is hard to guess. What dimensions are you aiming for?
