    Wip Common World Continent and world map [WIP]

    Instead of making post after post for each of the continents of Common world -- This post will serve as all subsequent Common world Maps.

    I've already uploaded the southern continent, and will upload in here later.

    For right now, though, this is my latest. Northern continent. Work in progress, critiques welcome.

    Is it just me, or does that look eerily similar to what North America might look like given just the right geological upheaval???

    Would love any critiques or suggestions anyone has. I'm still pretty new to mapping. This may very well be my third or fourth map ever. I did a couple versions of a map for a story several years ago. So any and all pointers are extremely welcome and invited.

    The only thing that I would say is that the rivers look like ribbons blowing in the wind...smooth and elegantly curvy. I know that there are more rivers to come but maybe if you made them more erratic and less swoopy. I dunno...I'd kinda like to see a map with a whole mess of elegant rivers swooping their way to the coast. Everything else looks great to me so keep up the good work there.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
