Thread: First Map

  1. #1

    Wip First Map

    Well, this is my very first attempt in making a map. Used mainly Jeremy Elford's tutorials It's just the first step, as only has the general shape of a continent and rivers. I want to work now in simbols and everything else. I hope you like it and feel free to comment, I'll accept any advise in order to improve!

    But be nice, please

    First off, welcome to the guild!

    Second, that's a very nice start. My only criticism is that a few of the rivers seem off to me. Specifically, the two big rivers near the center that join up and a couple other rivers that have branch offs that seem to veer too close to the main rivers. The big river system at the top of the map works well for me.

    I look forward to seeing this with some symbols on it.

    Thanks! I think you are right about the rivers. I first try to use the tutorial system to create them, but I ended up doing it by hand (as the upper one). I'm glad there's some difference! And the symbols I still don't know very much how I'll do them... I would like to draw them, but I'm not good enought to do it. I should keep trying and I hope I'll manage something, even if its with some brushes and so.

    Thanks again for your words!
