Critique and feedback please?
Well, this is basically the second map that I've ever done and felt confident enough in it to share here (I'm quite shy when it comes to this sort of thing). I have done other maps before, but none that I've felt were even remotely pleasing to look at for myself. Basically this is a map that I've done for a close friend of mine for an island region that his character is the lord of in a Role Play (the names and placements of rivers/mountains/cities/castles were all done by him with a rough draft).
The Heraldic devices were all done by me, except the gauntlet holding a lightning bolt which my friend made in paint, although I turned it into the actual shape that you see on the map. The other four were created mostly on a whim. My friend told me what the families were like and the colours he wanted, and left the design and charges to me (although I know they don't exactly follow the rules of tincture, such as the one for Skyguard, where it is colour on colour which is a no-no, but this is a fantasy world so I figured I could bend the rules in that regard).
Obviously from the maps that I've seen here and on DeviantArt, I'm not the greatest at cartography, but it's something I've enjoyed and I want to get better at it, so I'm asking for a critique and some feedback on this map. I know there are certainly things that I can improve on with it, but if I could perhaps be pushed in a proper direction (since most of this is just feeling around for me), that would be awesome and most appreciated.
Thanks in advance to any who can give advice and feedback.
