Tear's map of Westeros is mind-blowing and has me a bit jaded.. but actually this is quite a nice map.. good work!
This is my first post and first satisfying attempt at a fictional map. I mostly created this just to pass some time a few evenings ago, but it ended up being more fun than I anticipated. I'll likely continue to work on it stylistically, as well as expanding it to cover more of Westeros.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks! Yes - Tear's map is phenomenal! It was the basis for my decision to add subtle texture to mine, as it began as only a simple artificial shaded relief.
That's great work! I love the mountains; any chance you'd share how you did those?

Smooth and soft - very nice; but maybe change the black text to gray or brown or a dull green or dull blue.
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.
