I'm trying to make a map of my fantasy world in Photoshop. I drew the world on paper and brought it into Photoshop, tweaked the map, but it looks cartoonish and I asked permission to use map making brushes on Deviant Art, but haven't heard anything back from the brush creators. I'm thinking of printing the tweaked Photoshop map out and retracing it with pen or pencil and drawing in all the trees, houses, cabins, castles, towns, etc. I didn't realize cartography was this hard. I also have separate islands to work on. I'm thinking of making this fantasy a trilogy or tetralogy but I want to get the idea of what the world looks like first. Any map making tips and tricks from fantasy writers?
