    Post March entry: Where are the rivers?

    Just signed up today and tried mapmaking for the first time. Have some Photoshop skills and hope I still get this done in time. Still lots of work to do, especially the rivers. And of course mountains, bridges, subwaystations...

    I restarted the whole thing. Higher resolution and much bigger. After hours of tweaking and fiddling, I ended up by coincidence with these artificial ice lakes. Just need to add those damn rivers now and will see with what little titles and inscriptions I can come up with.

    First, I want to say welcome and thanks for joining the challenge. This is very lovely map and it is GREAT for new members to jump right in with such nice work.

    Now down to business, you might want to check the challenge thread and read the rules closely. While this is one of the nicer maps aesthetically, I would have trouble voting for it due to my interpretation of the rules and others may feel the same when they go to cast their votes.

    Post thanks

    Thanks heaps. I hope I get it finished in time. Thinking of names for lakes and mountains isn't as easy as I thought.

    There are tons of small little programs that can help with coming up with names...some are downloadable, some are website only. I use Name Mage to get an idea then make my own changes to what it generates.
