    Post May/June Lite Mapping Entry: Haradvar!

    This is my entry, it is just a regional map for my campaign world Erdis that I started working on recently. This is the Western half of the Northern continent, and it's pretty cold! For the regional map here I decided to experiment with a hand drawn (except for the labels) sort of pseudo-woodcut style. I think it turned out alright and will work as a good prop in the game. I hope you like it! Or if you have any other tips for improving it would be appreciated!

    haha, I'll fix that. Photographing drawings produces quite unreliable lightness/darkness!

    Cool map! Have some rep...

    Some critique:
    - The font is a bit unreadable I think.
    - Your mountains look a bit scattered. If you were trying to create ranged I would place more mountains and closer together.

    Anyway, very well done.
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    Uh oh. I'm up against some very pretty hand-drawn maps in this challenge. Woe is me! This is a very pretty map.

    I don't necessarily mind the font, but I agree that its hard to read where it overlaps map features. Maybe a white fade behind the letter to make them stand out? Also, I agree with dorf about the mountains looking a little sparse.
