    Wip Map of Ruwn (Fantasy map for novel) - First Map

    Hi all,

    This is my first map. I followed some tutorials to turn my hand-drawn mountains, trees, hills, etc, into Photoshop brushes. This is the first map I've created. I've taken care to shade everything the same direction. I'm aware that the rivers are all wrong in terms of flow - it's a plot point.

    Basically, at the moment I'm creating the world so that I have something to write from. What I'm having trouble with is somehow creating cities with the same style as this map. Pointers?

    Maybe an icon with three little buildings - the tallest in the center. Or a single hand drawn castle wall? Perhaps with a small triangle flag. You've nailed the style for everything else. I'd give your instinct a go, post a sample and see what people think.
