    Wip Un-named world WIP

    New member, first time posting here. Only found out about this site a few days ago, and have found it really useful. Browsing through the forums, found some excellent links to resources, and learnt about map projections. Now, I don't really have all that much to show, but I thought I'd start a WIP thread anyway; it'd serve well for posterity's sake, since I'll be able to see the progress of my work over time.

    I started this map yesterday by all accounts, since that's when I found one of the shapes in there that I like. I drew it as three individual shapes, but removed the 'borders' because it gives me a better feel for the shape and size of the supercontinent. I've finally got shapes I actually like! I noticed it might be because the overall shapes on an equirectangular projection taper, which for me adds a nice aesthetic. I haven't got a name for the world yet, although I do have inhabitants already lined up to populate it.

    Lots of work ahead. For one, I want a continent to the south of this supercontinent, but I am not sure whether it should be in the process of moving away or colliding. It's a good job I found out about G.Projector so soon, I was working with a mercator projection at first. It also made me realise that things get closer to one another towards the poles, and aren't just squished.
