    Post First Map - Islands of Evenom

    I have been reading your posts and enjoying all your wonderful maps for a long, long time. I started toying with the concept of map-making and created my own. I used Adobe Photoshop and paintbrush.

    I hope I put this in the right spot. Forgive me in advance if I posted it wrong.

    Looks good, man. Everything seems to be in order, both mapwise and postwise. I certainly hope you do some more, this is nice.

    Have some rep for posting your first map!
    I like it. Good colors and you used some nice mountain and tree symbols. The mountain ranges look very believable.

    No places of interest though? No cities? The map looks a bit empty because of that.

    Looks rather nice - to be honest, it looked like it was done in Campaign Cartographer or something similar.. you seem to have that style mastered in photoshop

    First off... Welcome Aboard!

    It's a nice map. Had you not said you did it in PS & Paintbrush I would have thought Campaign Cartographer as well. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

    Good job for your first map.

    If I were you, I would expand upon it, adding cities, towns, locations, etc.
