Okay, this is only the second map I've ever made. This is being done in Photoshop CS4, with some textures done in Genetica. It's pretty massive - 5000x5000px.

I've included a couple of examples with example names to give an idea of what I'm talking about. I've also included a general overview showing the whole map so you can tell me how wrong all the rivers and everything is
