    Default Mountains of East Africa - old style map

    Hi all,

    The first map I am working on it the following



    the idea is to get a map of the main mountains in East Africa. Of course the map should look a bit cool. I am new in mapmaking but I have quite some experience in photoshop. I am looking to tips and ideas to make the map look more interesting.

    I hope the inserting of the picture goes well ;-)

    Cheers,
    Robbert

    I like it. I like the big sense of scale and how far apart everything seems.
    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.

    And nice colors/design in general, too. The one think I noticed is that the ocean should probably contrast a little more from the land.
