    Wip [WIP] My first map and first time as a DM.

    Hi guys,

    This is my first map and I'm still in the process of drawing it. My laptop is a tablet with Wacom so all of this was drawn on its tiny 12.1" screen in Adobe Illustrator. I would really appreciate some criticism/feedback! I haven't drawn anything since I was in high school so as I am progressing from left to right on the map, I'm starting to see my style change a bit. I've gone back and tried to keep things a bit more consistent, but I can't tell if it worked at all.

    The world is a typical fantasy type and we will be playing in 4e. On my list of things to do is coloring the map, labeling all the landmarks, adding in the rest of the cities/roads/navies. I at one point tried to make it geographically realistic but its wandered away from that

    Anyway, I wanted to share my progress so far and document the new things I'll be learning from these forums!
    Thanks for reading.

    3-12-12 Starting Map
    3-13-12 Added a few cities and ships
    3-14-12 Added some color, need to finish coloring and decide if I should keep the fine lines or get rid of them entirely.
    3-15-12 More Color, cities!
    3-16-12 Color >_>
    3-19-12 Done Coloring I think?
    3-22-12 Labels, import to photoshop to begin final touches, realize the file and resolution are HUGE at 300dpi
    3-24-12 Polish, labels, tentatively done?
