Unnatural mountain formation?
I was wondering if there was a way I could represent an unnatural formation on a world map.
Basically, there is a large continent separated by two mountain ranges that have a small area in the middle. Like this ~| |~ However the mountain range is supposed to look like a giant wave of water facing out from each other ) ( It was created by magic to separate two people groups. I'm using GIMP, am a newbie, and can't really draw by hand. Is there a way to make this or should I just make a normal mountain range on the map and not worry about it, keeping in mind what it looks like in my head?
Let me know if you need a better description. Thanks!
Would this look something like the great rift valley in Africa?
Something like it, yes. Didn't even know about that, haha. It'll have a crest at the top too. Something like this:
Hope that helps.
You could look at this for inspiration : https://www.google.ca/search?q=aster...icial&tbm=isch
To do something that would look like that, I recommand that you take a look at Torstan's tips about cliffs here. [Award Winner] Assorted tips and tricks
And also 2 other links of mountain style that I think could suit your vision :

AND mountains that looks like sharp teeth: Some hand-drawn elements...
Thanks for the great links. I'll definitely use them to try and make the look I want. Thanks Azelor and waldronate
