    I really like this map. It feels friendly and fresh somehow. I like the clear labels and the places of interest.
    It's nice that you use the symbols of the heraldry to mark the borders with watermarks.

    I'm jealous of you because of the pretty symbols for cities and castles.
    Seen them, I'm trying to invent some for my own map.

    Where are the many names of forests, cities and landscapes from? Do you create them while mapping or is there already an existing world you take them from?

    Thanks Eld

    I already had the main areas/regions labels done, related with a main written setting. It's not that much detailed so I created other names while mapping which may help me to go farther in setting details if I need to.

    I feel ehm... humbled. This is a great map with nothing to nitpick right now. Looking foreward to the finished piece!

    This map is evolving beautifully. The two islands in the the large lake look like they have a different glow around them. Is that on purpose?

    What do the symbols by Sapril, Dinorias, Arkanil and Mysdelil mean? Are they symbols for capitol cities?

    Thanks much guys
    @Maquesh : the waterlines will be the same as the other coasts on the two islands you were talking about. I haven't worked yet on that small inner sea. And yes, the symbols are for capitol cities, this will be clearly explained later in a map key, along the other symbols, roads, borders and heraldry

    Wow. Just wow. The inspiration I got from just checking out this post is just immense. Really makes me happy that i found this forum!
    If the journey isn't epic the ending certainly won't be either.

    Glad to know you find some inspiration here Cain :-) after all this is one of the purpose of CG: learn some things, share the works, get inspired by others to improve own maps. A lot of maps inspired me in the forums ;-)

    Yeah I instantly noticed how supportive the community is! "CG is the fuel, my mind the engine". Just thought of that and I don't think it's a bad metaphor. ;P
