    Map The Nations of Veria

    This is not my first map, but itís the first I post here. As I said in my presentation, itís maybe my less ugly and more "mine" map, because I personally drew every element in it.

    I still really have huge difficulties, especially creating mountain brushes (not considering drawing mountains one by one) as I really canít drawÖ.but I donít loose hope, I will improve.

    Tutorial and tips on this site have been fundamental of course, and I owe this community my skills (even if basic, at the moment). I know that improving requires time and hard work, but I really have few time, so it will take long to improve.
    So many good artists and inspirations here, I almost feel puny; though from time to time I will inflict you my creations

    Hi fabio-

    You post was caught in the moderation queue. Long time lurker, eh? Four years since joining and your first post is a great map! Thanks for deciding to participate

    I agree, this is a good map with an easy-to-use side.

    Congrats for your nice pine trees. And your mountains are not so bad by the way. I would rather find a way to place the shield a little bit more in harmony with the rest of the map (with a layer effect maybe?). It clash with the texture in my opinion.

    I think it's a good first try. Did you do this in gimp? If so, I have some brushes for mountains and trees that I made, if you would like to try them.

    Thank you all.

    @ Rob A: A long time lurker and a shy one .

    @ Ilanthar: Thanks for the suggestion; I was going to put the shields in a separate box but finally decided to apply them directly on the "nation" territory.

    @ kwbunyap: I did it mainly in photoshop; it's kind of you to offer me your brushes, anyway i'm aiming to do all by myself (except fonts, for the moment)
