Balfour's Map Picture

This is a map of the underworld setting from my fantasy novel BURN IN HADES. [link]

This is the very first map I've ever created so I'm not a cartographer by any means. And in certain respects, I still consider it a work in progress.

Initially, I drew the first draft by hand on a series of 36 sheets of letter sized (8.5" X 11") paper all taped together. Each sheet of paper represented on entire realm of the underworld. Mostly, the first draft was just the coastline, islands and some basic sketches of terrain. Then, I scanned all 36 sheets one by one into Photoshop CS5, reassembled them, and continued building the map from there.
