    Quite a nice map to start with.

    A good choice of colours... very subtle, even a little too much. Perhaps you could go for just a little more saturation.

    Nice variant coastlines, but overall, your island/continent suffers from the "I have to fit the page" syndrom. Try to avoid stretches of coastline parallel to the page's edges.

    You should put a little more effort into the mountains. As it is now, most of them look like a single giant slug of a hill, without any variation. Try to add more ridges, like in the mountains south of Primo Sole.

    You might also want to consider adding some rivers. In the style you use here, rivers in the blue colour of your coastline would fit in perfectly.


    I hope I wasn't too harsh... you could have done a loooooot worse.

    I agree with Freodin.

    Nice job with each element of execution.

    But I too think the map is "soft" in the colors.

    Is it finished?!? Are you going to add roads or a compass rose or any other embellishments?

    Thank you very much for the valuable advice ... I will treasure. Unfortunately, being the first map that I realize I realize that it is full of holes but with time and your help I hope to fill these my limits.
    I think the map is completed as being just the first did not want to lose too much time knowing that however would be full of errors.
    I plan to make a new one in a different style, more antasy and with many elements to embellish it .... and at that point I'll have a big hand drae
