    Wip [WIP] Regional Map 1

    Since I'm on a break, I decided to really get back to mapping, to produce something totally finished that I'm

    maps, but without quite so many embellishments. To have some extra motivation and keep a record of progress,
    I created this thread.

    That one is simply a test map where I was playing with layers and blending, and it is lacking significant background.
    Worldbuilding is a big hobby of mine, so that will be remedied.

    It is my intention for this map to look like something that could have been created by the people who live there.
    I like fancy maps such as those used for game worlds, but I want to create something that feels like it is a part
    of the world it represents. I've never really done that (successfully) before.

    It doesn't look like much, but the outline is very important... No really, it is.
