Welcome to the Guild Rick! That sounds like a fun and challenging project, and it's great that you want to share it with us. There are a number of artistic factors to consider when creating a map. What is the genre and/or intended theme of the map? What sort of medium and style would be fitting to represent that genre and/or theme? How to create a composition that draws the eye to the important details of the map and yet also contains all of the necessary map elements (e.g. title, key, compass, scale etc)? These are only a few initial considerations and I'm sure others here could name dozens more.
Definitely curious to follow the progress on this. Please let us know how the project progresses.
