    Wip W.I.P. for Thyrdain - Hand-drawn fantasy map

    So, as my first REAL project in mapping, I decided to create a map that will become the setting for my personal Pathfinder fantasy setting. It won't be too big, but definitely large enough to have everything I want.

    I also decided, by a friend's suggestion, that I will try something different this time: a hand-drawn map. The catch is that I'm not exactly a good artist - I'm not even average, actually. So there is a lot of practice involved, and it will hopefully help me improve a lot.

    First I started drawing various features, just to try and decide the overall style of the map. This is what I got so far:

    I'm still drawing a lot of trees, mountains, cliffs, dunes, etc. I'm having a difficult time with dense forests, so if anyone has any tips, I would appreciate it!

    Also, I started sketching the overall coastline shapes, mountains and forests locations, rivers, etc. Here is the rough first draft:

    Both were drawn by hand and scanned. I'm also planning a lot of other stuff for the setting, but most don't really belong here, so I'll just leave it at that for now.

    Well, that's what I have done at this time. Please feel free to criticize (I need it a lot)!

    See ya!

    EDIT: I'm also going to be updating this project on my blog, so please check it out!
