My First Map
Earlier I posted my sons first map. It was made in CC3. I really liked the ease use for his map, but I wanted to try my map in PS...
I am an absolute beginner at map making and PS!
I followed one of the tutorials that was posted by Jezelf. I'm sure that I didnt do things right, but it took me a while to do so I wanted to get some feed back on it. things on it arent geographically correct so Ill take any input that you all have.
This isnt a world that I thought up, I just wanted to try CS4 out and see if I could do it.
Here is my map:
looks great! love the water texture.
are those grey lines roads, rivers, or borders?
I tried to make them rivers but i couldn't get them to be colored.
I like the overall shape of the land masses and the colors are good (except for the rivers). You have a good start here.
One thing I would suggest is to decrease the bevel on the land, it looks like everything has cliffs (unless that's what you intended :)).
Also some of your rivers do some strange things, such as going from 'ocean to ocean'.
Thanks for the input. I wasnt too sure about the river placement. Also i was trying for a 3D look but i guess i took it too far.
