    Wip WIP Kerngard - fantasy map

    Hey,

    So I was recently commissioned for a new fantasy map. This is a norse/viking-like region called Kerngard for a GM's campaign setting he's gonna run soon ( 4252x4252px). As usual I wanted to share steps with the guild Started with the landmass, sea background and waterlines mainly. I 'll use a fresh new set of mountains I previously draw to use for this funny project though I won't use the biggest ones. Have several options for forests (one I like much that I have to try). Currently working on compass, I'll post progress later... Here what I did so far.

    Added compass and rhumb lines and while I was at it, I did a second one (couldn't help myself). Also worked a bit on colors/textures of land and sea and added highlights on sea around the coasts.

    Looks good!
    Is there a certain reason why the compass rose is but is rotated a few degrees instead of pointing straight to the top for north?

    Thanks Well not really, It just seems that I have the bad habit to rotate them on most of my maps for esthetic resons. My own tastes don't match with straight compass but maybe I'm wrong with that I don't know

    I felt those trees were quite too big so I decrease their size from 20%. Also added a few hills, some more forest and worked more on them, on areas close to mountains (trees overlapping mountains is ok, I just removed the white mask so this will be fixed when coloring time. Cromlechs added.
