    Nothing to get anxious about it looks great. The textures are very nice and I really like your rivers (I am not a fan of a "stroke" around rivers but that;s just my personal preference") Have some rep for a VERY nice first map post.

    It's an excellent rendition of the style (and it's a pretty style). One suggestion I might make is that your mountain chains are a little straight in places. The one just below center towards the right is about as straight as I would expect mountains to be; the one just above-left of center is much straighter than I might expect. Then again, mountains vary widely, and it's tough to make much in the way of judgements without a good scale on the map.

    Welcome - that's a nice intro map! Is it a part of your game world, or a standalone work ?

    Thanks everyone for the replies!!
    @jbgibson it is a standalone map, just practising the style with Tear's tutorial, feel free to use it if you like it in your campaign or story
    @waldronate yeap, you are right, the mountains are a bit straight, mainly because i had no idea what part should i pay emphasis on while creating them.
    i ended up redoing them at the end, just to give them a more realistic feel, and more texture.
    @jtougas YAY! thanks for the rep (no idea what it is and how to use it )
    im not a fan of the river style in this map, but it was the best i could do with the tutorial give by Tear (and using a mouse)

    thanks for the feedback everyone, i am currently doing another map, so i will post things here, or in another post.
    Might do a WIP thingy, although im not quite sure how to
