I took part in the June/July challenge at the Cartographers’ Guild. We had to turn the provided base map into a map of our own.
When I started my entry, most people had used the contours as coastlines, with some entries using them as lakes. I decided to do something different and turned them into a valley.
Unfortunately the challenge closed before I could add a version with fluff and some minor decorations. It’s a bit cluttered, so I do not mind that much.
This was my second entry into a Mapping Challenge – the first one was the River Challenge two years ago. I am quite satisfied with how this map turned out. I am not going to win this challenge, but that’s quite okay; I did not expect to. It was a late entry with a lot of good competition. It was great practice and I am sure I can make use of this map sooner or later.
