    nice first map Kaede - go look through the finished maps section and see if there is a style you like for your elements - perhaps something looking a bit like Ramahs would do nice.. .or the style Immolate use for his current challenge map of Wheel of Time...

    not bad, and only you can say what fits your map - cause its your vision. But if I should suggest something, it would be making them more uneven and un-alike and maybe add some horizontal "noise" to ground them more

    The hard part is doing this all with a mouse. I wish I had a tablet. I had one in art class at school. So useful. :/

    even though you map symbols are "stylized" the rivers seem a bit big at the end - I'd make them a bit thinner

    What is the scale of your map? Just curious.
