Very nice map!

Is this for a project or did you just create it to create it? Also, what software did you use to create the map.

Post Re: I thought I'd share my new map(s)
It started out as a map to make a map, but I tend to find the more work I put into something the better a home I want to find for it. If that makes any sense at all.

I'm still trying to fully decide if it will go into my D&D Homage, or if I'll find a different home of some kind for it. Right now, I know its the continent of Alath on the world of Vendaval.

I know the ages it has gone through and the nature of its gods, great empires, and races. I just don't know if I can squeeze that into a D&D homage or rather it should be its own entirely new thing.



As for programs. I generated the continent coastlines here: http://donjon.bin.sh/world/

I cut off bits to make it a continent that fit my personal designs. I then inked the coastlines in photoshop, and followed a tutorial from the Cartographers Guild (albeit it isn't finished yet.)

The tutorial was here:

Still trying to finish up, when I'm energized. I've got more continents to do in the Northern Hemisphere (Reorndil and Vendh) , then the south, then the poles.

It looks great. Maybe if I need a map for a fantasy game (and I do run them from time to time) I might have to commission you to make me a map :)

How long did it take you to make the map? And did you use any specific software to create it?

Photoshop, on top of the stuff above. Using filters, layers, and the like.

Its taken a long time, I'd say going on 20 hours of work for the not quite finished continent above. I'm sure with practice that will improve. If you want FANTASTIC maps, it never hurts to check out the Cartographer's Guilds Website and throw work at those people. I'm just a beginner at all this mapping (besides my old school hand drawn maps..:D)

I can do a few things in Photoshop but I am far from being a pro

I will check out that website and see what is up. Thanks for the advice and again, the map is beautiful.
