    Well, this is my project. Its very poor yet but im puting some efort to learn how to map with the help of Photoshop (I used CC3 but... i dont know, it didnt convince me)

    P.D: Im thinking in add some textures such as oceans or grass from some website, is that ok?

    Welcome to the Guild.

    Looks good. Not being a GIMP user or anything I cannot offer much that way.

    With rivers, just remember. The Flow Downhill, and go from small streams and creeks joining into larger rivers, and larger rivers and they never, ever split downstream EXCEPT in the case of a river Delta like the Nile.

    Never use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice!

    Any questions on CC3? Post them with CC3 in the Subject Line!

    I moved this over to the Regional section instead of the Request section since you are looking for tips and not an actual map made by someone else.

    So, as for tips, I would suggest making your mountain shapes more diversified. Right now they all look like upside down letter V's. That's fine for now but make some bigger and some smaller, make some wider and some thinner.
