    Map The Greater Therbani River Valley

    Hi all!

    Long-time lurker and tutorial peruser . . . This is my first map!

    This map was first drawn up by hand and then brought the rest of the way in GiMP. I was hoping to convey the sense that it was hand-drawn on parchment by some person living in the area.

    The mountains are mostly hand-drawn in. I added a bump-map and gradient overlay, intended to make the map look weathered, and constantly folded and re-folded. Originally the water was the same color as the land, but I added in a fill with an additional bump map - it's supposed to look like the drawer inked it in with long straight horizontal strokes.

    Seeking constructive criticism or tips for future mapping.
