    Wip The Reaching Coast of Thesa

    Hello all,

    As mentioned in my first post "First Map Discussion" I am making my map. This is a rough sketch of "The Reaching Coast", or the northern shore of Thesa. This is the main countries, The Military State of Amesyus, The Meloirian Grandure, New Folkand, and the Long Sands of Seneshaara. Hope you enjoy my progression from paper to pixels.

    This is without the mountains that I have recently drawn with is basically a mountain Range called "The Skyreach Mountains", that extends along the southern border of Meloira, the Western Border of Amesyus, the Eastern Border of Seneshaara, and the Northern Border of New Folkand.

    Here is the map so far, using Arsheesh's method of Eroind (Sorry if I misspelled the name), I've been having a bit of trouble doing the mountains. I am trying but every attempt looks horribly wrong to me when I transfer it to Wilbur. Opinions would be nice, as well as how to make it into a good Archaic Map after these few steps. Thats all, here you go.

    I think he mentioned his first pic was a sketch and that he hoped we would enjoy his "progression from paper to pixels".
    The best maps are the ones we like the most after looking at the longest.

    Eroind isn't really working out. Not because I broke it, but I realized it's for non-beginners to which I replied in my kind "OOOOH...I'm a beginner" and so I am using what I learned for some tutorials and gonna try my best to restart this. I still have it incase I want to try again.

    Okay, new problem. I need some help with labeling the states and countries or whatever you call them. Also, a minor wanting to put a symbol of Amesyus in the corner. Any good ideas on how to make a coat of arms with Gimp or Paint.Net?
