    Wip The makings of the beginning

    Well this is my very first map made and I figured since it is thanks to cartography guild that I was able to create this map that I should at least contribute it to the community. It is not completely finished and a bit rush at certain points so I need to do some touch ups. Especially for the rivers but all in all a good start.

    I like the subtle colors you have going. I agree that the rivers need some more work...why the fade as you head up river? was that part of the tut?

    Like you said .... "a good start"

    Have some rep for your first map

    I would suggest using a scan of some old paper for the texture, if you can get your hands on it. It'll look smoother than a cloud render layer ... otherwise, nice start.

    I rather like the texture. The first thing I thought of was "a map painted on a piece of close-grained wood rather than antique parchment." Not sure if that's what you were going for, but that was my first impression. I also second the lovely subtle colors.
