WIP - continent of Demetia
So, after doing one region of one continent of my original world, and sort-of doing a second (while revising RobA's tutorial), I decided that I should actually do the continental map first, so I can get the scale somewhat correct, and then go back and do the regional maps at the proper scale.
I am using Ascension's "atlas-style" tutorial, just to try out the style. I am not at all happy with what I'm posting here, just to be clear...once I get through the whole tutorial and learn what the overall effect is supposed to be, I will be throwing out most of what I've done and starting over. I will probably end up mixing some of Ascension's style with some of RobA's style, along with some experimentation of my own.
At any rate, here is what I have starting off. Will post more of course as I develop it.
Continuing with Demetia 2.0
So I think I like this second version much better. Finished the climate adjustments, adjusted the shelf. Added rivers and lakes, though I have to say I'm not sure I like this method for doing waterways--it just looks funny to me. I will have to look at some actual real-world atlas maps and see what those look like, and then experiment to see if I can get something that looks better.
PLEASE, someone comment!!
