    Wip My first ever map - "Elder's Hollow"

    Before you look at it, let me answer three questions you are definitely going to ask after you do:

    1. Q: Hollow in a place name means cave - where is the cave going to be? A: Off the map. The reason being that I don't really know how to draw caves, and also because I'm focussing on the town which was named after the nearby cave. Nearby meaning a few kilometres away
    2. Q: This is in the town/city section, yet there is no town or city! A: That's not a question. But just for the sake of it: The town is to follow.
    3. Q: Why do the trees not have trunks? A: Because it's a WIP.

    Okay, so here it is. A PNG and the source file (psd), in case someone wants to play around with it.

    What do you think?

    It looks like a good start, it's a bit difficult to critique when there's so little there.

    Ask and thou shalt recieve

    I added buildings and streets. Next will be more buildings and a bridge.

    I can't upload the PSD for some reason. No error message, it just won't upload.

    The .PSD file may be to big to upload - there are file size limitations.

    It looks nice so far. Not too much there yet, so it's hard for me to give some constructive criticism at the moment. It's a good start as SG has stated before me.
