This is the land with no name... yet.
I the land for my D&D games as of now.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on things I could do to make it look a lot more... appealing to the eye.
To me it seems Mediocre and I want it to look more professional.
Any ideas on how I can do such a thing?
What I did for this map:
I draw my maps on paper first, starting with pencil and drawing land masses.
Then inking and moving on to forests and mountains.
After that I just see what I need in some places.
This was the map on paper.
I outlined it in GIMP and then put a photocopied piece of parchment behind the outline.
After that I just used various colors and spray painted on different layers the colors I needed.
The parchment color to give it not a "I'm on a fake piece of paper" look.
The forests, ice, desert (the darkness on the left side) and the mountains.
I drew the little trees and mountains into a brush and sprayed them on.
It so far is just a bunch of sprayed on colors on a small world.
It looks unappealing.
It seems like a small world.
Compared to the rivers and mountain sizes and such everything just looks ... big.
Making the world... either small... or have 12 mile wide rivers...
