    Wip First attempt at continental map using Pasi's terrain creation tutorial

    Though I've been playing around with cartography for many years through my love of RPGs, I'm a newcomer to the Cartographer's Guild. I've been using Photoshop and Illustrator professionally in my capacity as a graphic designer but this is the first time I've used it for a large scale continental map. I found Pasi's tutorial and thought I'd try out the methods described for setting textures and using the pattern stamp and I was delighted with the results.

    This is still a work in progress, but I'd be keen to get feedback on the style and general comments. In terms of scale and detail, I haven't decided exactly what the scale is yet. The file is set up as an A3 landscape image (@300 dpi in case I decide to print it), so there's plenty of room. I'm planning to convert it to a vector in Illustrator then add the detail (nations names, settlements, etc) there along with a decorative border and legend.

    Thanks
