    Post My first map, WIP

    Hello all! I'm a new member here. This map is based on RobA's superb tutorial for creating a regional map in GIMP. This is my first real attempt at a digital map, so I'm in serious need of advice.

    Obviously, I haven't even gotten to the labeling part. I figure I'll try to get the underlying physical geography right before putting down cities and roads and empire borders and stuff and then naming everything.

    The next few things on my list of tweaks are:
    • Figure out some way to make the rivers look like they're flowing through the forests rather than over them
    • Address some of the areas of the coastline and rivers that have right angles
    • Make the northwestern-most mountain look more craggy coming out of the forest
    • Add a fertile river valley along side the rivers that flow through the desert

    Thoughts? Suggestions? Pointers? Thanks!
