Alderon Sort-of Satellite Map
So, uh, first map and first post. Be gentle with me...
Anyway. Alderon is a working title, especially considering I am almost 100% certain I saw a map with a really similar name recently. The idea was to get the elevation worked out before I started adding details to the overall world, so I wouldn't place a city on top of a mountain or have roads running over cliffs or anything. I'd love to hear some thoughts on the best way of expressing mountains and valleys etc. without any specialized programs?
I've put the scale in, but as a general idea the country is meant to be roughly the size of Finland. I also reduced the image size so it wasn't so excessive, and I don't think that this did anything drastic to the image quality, but let me know if it's super pixelated.
