That's looking pretty good! You draw some nice trees.
What's the blocks to the southwest supposed to represent?
I figured I'd try my hand at a hand-drawn, what with my being without internet for a week (on vacation).
Here's a camera shot of the drawing before I started coloring it. I hope to get my scanner up and running sometime soon, will scan the colorized version.
Cropped and adjusted for contrast in Gimp, rest is whatever pencil I could snag from the kids
Thanks! Inspired by the Zombie Nirvana tutes. (The trees, I mean)
The blocks were supposed to be plateaued cliffs, I guess. My sister suggested it, and I figured I could try it out, it being a practice piece anyway. I guess it'd be something like this.
The plateaued cliffs would probably be more clear if you looked at them isometrically, and added circles/squares/whatever on top.
Looks great overall. I particularly like the way you let just a few hills peek from behind the mountains they surround.
That has a nice, classic handdrawn look to it. Good luck with further work on this map!
I think, therefore I am a nerd.

Pimping my worldmap here. Still WIP... long way to go, but I'm pretty proud of what I've done so far...
Here's the hand-colored version, scanned. I'm not sure the scanner is working at full power, I had a power supply that matches in volts, but not quite in ampere.
I had to adjust brightness/contrast a lot in gimp.
@Gandwarf: Yellow, well, I figured I would color some brown on top of it so it'd become more dirt-ish, but the colors I used weren't very good for painting on top of eachother, so it ended up yellow. Not that I don't like it, mind. Just not what I had planned.
I guess in general this map grew from coincidence.
@AslanC: Project? You want to do stuff with my map? Sure!
