    Wip Galian, My first real attempt at cartography

    Hello everyone, I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions or tips on my first attempt at making a map that actually looks good. Some of you may have seen my request for someone to try and take my very bad map and make it look good. I had made a map originally for my players that was very basic and simple but I wanted more. I took that post down however because I decided to instead work on it myself. Here is what I started with:Click image for larger version.

    It was basic and easy to give to my players. I wanted to show more of the world however, namely the continents north and south of this one. So I got to picture 2. I got my coast lines to look realistic from jelmore's tutorial. Some of you may notice the "Sketch Style" from Moe's tutorial. Or at least the beginnings of it. I gave up because I just couldn't get it to look right. Also I got my coast lines to look realistic from jelmore's tutorial.

    But then I found Star Raven's "Sketchy Cartography Brushes" and I feel in love so I started over. Now I'm at the last picture and want anyone's advice or tips I can find. I'm nowhere near done, I simply figured now was as good a time as any to get some help. One big thing is that I cant seem to find a font I like that matches this style. Anything and everything anyone can give me or tell me or say to me will be helpful! Thanks!
