    Default Pernith WIP (My first regional map)

    Greetings everyone, I have been lurking here for some time now and thought I would show a map that I have been working on using Paint Shop Pro XI.

    I started with wilbur and generated this texture:

    Then brought it into PSP and created my tree and mountain/hill areas after making it flat. I toyed with a realistic style, but for my campaign the hand drawn effect would work best:

    using the java program "mapmaking" found here on the forums, I switched my tree mask for better rendered trees and adjusted my mountain brush.

    Still a work in progress...but my first regional map.

    Well that's great so far!

    I still can't do much myself, so I can't really give any usable input...

    I'd love to see this when it's done.

    Very nice. It seems like a bit of wasted effort to generate all that nice terrain and then not use it but you ended up with a nice landmass. I really like the tree and mountain effects as well. The only thing I can offer is that the trees seem a little large for your hex grid. Nice work

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
