    Post Port City of Melsuur, hand drawn

    This is the Port City of Melsuur. Melsuur is a major trade city as it is the crossroads of an international road and is at the mouth of two navigable rivers. The city's claim to fame is the Brandon University. Scholars travel from all over the world to study within the University's dark green walls. Their library is known as one of the largest in the world.

    I drew this map with a ballpoint pen and then filled it in with colored pencil. Let me know what you think.

    Very nice. The harbor looks quite natural, even though the coast has some very sharp points. I like the coloring.

    I like it..

    My only little nit-pick is the red text. Plain red-text (without some kind of glow/drop shadow/etc.) tends to blur/bleed into the background. A minor point really, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention it.
