    Help creating a coastal outline and tapered rivers

    Guys I was wondering if you would please walk me through the process of creating coastal line and rivers like in these maps below:

    I looked at some of them but I'm still stumbling with coast line outline and river combo. I did some trials with PS but it comes out a bit rough. The best stroke edge for a river that matches the coast outline was sponge brush but the color doesn't match. I also tried erase but they still come out pretty rough around the edges. Here is what I'm talking about:

    If you could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

    I don't have time this morning to really look at it, but you might want to look for Jezelf's tutorials. If I recall correctly, he had an approach that makes a nice, detailed coastline and rivers to match.

    Thank you that is exactly what I was looking for!!! I checked some tutorials by Ascension, RobA, overlordchuck. They all were fantastic but there were some things that I couldn't find for the style of map I wanted to try.

    Thanks again
