    Map Map of Norabaar

    So I am making this map for a novel I'm writing and I wanted to get other people's input. Is it any good? Do you have any suggestions? Love to hear from you, and thanks in advance.

    If this continent is on the northern hemisphere then you have a desert far too north in the northwest. The swamp rivers seem to be flowing inland. But overall, I like it. Don't see many lands laid out so wide like that, kind of a novel idea (at least to me eyes since I don't read that many fantasy books). If you were to flip this around and make it a southern hemisphere continent then the swamp might have to get moved depending on that little bit of land in the southwest - it it's a full continent then things might just be fine.

    I reworked my map a little according to your advice. I expanded the map and moved the desert into the bottom continent, also I fixed the rivers around the swamp. I also put it onto an old paper background. I'd like to hear what you have to say about this one. Thanks

    Pretty good now. Is the rest of the map going to match what you have going for the forests and cartouche?
