    Wip Lost in Isilek...

    Hey all!

    For absolutely no reason other than fun I have decided to embark on a somewhat-epic world-building journey. Using GIMP and the incredible tutorials provided by guildmembers here I have made one continent on this imaginary world. It's been a steep learning curve for me but I couldn't have come even this far without the Cartographer's Guild. So, now I turn to you again. I'm having a bit of trouble on mountain placement - among others. The first image is what I have. The second image is where I would like the mountains, swamps, forests, etc. I'm just not sure how to get there from here. Ugh.

    The setting is high-fantasy but I would still like SOME realism represented on my maps. Feel free to comment, laugh, cajole, criticize and otherwise caper about the post. Help is, of course, appreciated.

    You'll need wiser minds than mine for expert advice on river placement. I already like the direction you are going with this, your color and texture choices are both attractive to the eye. I'd consider two things, cleaning up your coast a bit, its a little over detailed now in a way that takes away from the coastlines, and unless its key to the story, modifying the land in the lower right, its oddly square.
