Anyway. What would I do without Adobe Creative Suite? My Merging Worlds Trilogy takes place in a province called Jael (ji-al). For fun, and to put in my books, I started creating the land through Photoshop and Illustrator. I'll share my progress with you. I'm not a professional. I'm leaning as I go along.
I've showed you this map before.
...to create a vector of the map.
I opened this in Photoshop and moved it into my map image.
I added some color, texture and text.
Next step, rivers and mountains. Next, I create the world. I made a rough sketch just to get the placement of landmasses, ocean names and temperature.
