    Wip WIP - Sea Parchment Island

    This may be my first map. I don't know, its hard to say. I have been following many tutorials and am continuing to do much experimenting both with new programs and in the ways to use them. Anyway, I have my heart set on a kind of watercolorish map style. I may be working on this for some time, but eventually what I want to do is make a map style that looks really cool and requires very little brushing and tweaking so that the maps can be created very quickly.

    In the particular map that I have right now, the land is more or less a placeholder. Currently I am trying to get the feel of the map material right. This is what I have so far.

    Also, sorry for the scattered posts related to this. At the time I made those related posts I was only mildly curious about doing a few things. Now my interest has become vigor. And... what am I doing wrong to not get a thumb?

    Some useful cartography facts:
    Circumference (C) of the Earth is about 25,000 miles or 40,000 km.
    Highest point on Earth is 5.5 miles (8.9 km) above sea level (ASL/BSL).
    Lowest point of land on Earth is 1/4 mile (0.4 km) BSL.
    Lowest elevation in the ocean is 6.8 miles (10.9 km) BSL.

    And our solar system:
    C of Jupiter = 279,118 miles (449,197 km).
    Highest mountain is Olympus Mons on Mars. It is 16 miles high (24 km) and is the size of Arizona.

    Looks good so far! As far as the thumbnail goes, are you hitting "Go Advanced" and then the "Manage Attachments" button?
