Apologies if this isn't where the pictures go... I thought it would be where I would put it, but I wasn't completely sure.

One thing before I post links: yes, I'm aware that I'm the worst teenage artist ever, and I'm aware that my handwriting sucks. XD

That said, here are the links:

http://i49.tinypic.com/eafwp4.jpg (that's a picture of the whole map)
http://i48.tinypic.com/34dod2t.jpg (that's a picture of... the legend, I think it's called? Y'know, the code that says what color each terrain is in?)
http://i49.tinypic.com/eafwp4.jpg (a close-up of the continents, excluding the compass and the legend)
http://i47.tinypic.com/21agton.jpg (a close-up of the Eastern continent)
http://i45.tinypic.com/j81ocl.jpg (a close-up of the Western continent)
http://i50.tinypic.com/2ldawyb.jpg (a close-up of the Southern continent)
http://i47.tinypic.com/9tjxaa.jpg (the title-thingy-whatchamacallit)

And there you have it! ^.^ A word about two of the countries; Setay and Mysticalia (if you can even read my horrid handwriting): There are other words inside the country that indicate realms. For instance, the different colored spaces in Setay (the Southern continent) are kind of like realms--they're actually gateways to other worlds. Nuvolo; Vahalla; Fuegoso; Sombro; Erkalteng; Brise; and Acqua.
Fuegoso's area is red because it's a land of fire, whereas Erkalteng's is dark blue because it's a frozen wasteland, and etcetera.

Any comments are appreciated. ^^ Criticism shouldn't dishearten me, since I'm already aware that it's a badly-drawn map. XD

I think it's quite well-drawn really- of course you can work on your art skills, but that goes for everyone. ;) I like the style you used, coloring it and detailing it so well, I have trouble with that. :P I also like the names you used. ^_^

You don't have horrid handwriting, Renna. :) In my opinion it's very pretty.

I adore the names you have chosen, they're very eye catching I think. :)

You have obviously taken time over your maps, and that's all that matters. :) I am hopeless at creating any sort of map; so I commend you for putting your effort into it. :) Well done.

Thanks, guys. :)

Yeah, some of the names I made up, and others I got from other languages. And I also got a few from the wine section in my store. Nobody in my family drinks, but one day me and my brother discovered that a lot of wines have extremely epic names. XD

Also, a note: "Siner Lake" was supposed to be "Siner Bay". I have NO IDEA how I managed to write lake instead of bay. XP

Names from wine bottles...now there's an idea.

I've done that more than once, which is why I usually draw in pencil and then color the lines over with permanent marker. I've still mixed names up and there's really no way to fix it. I even accidentally put the same name on one of my maps TWICE! XD That one was kind of hard to get around.

Works in progress

The Skyriders Trilogy (outlining)

What Waits in Shadow (fantasy short story--editing)
The Stranger's Gift (fantasy short story--editing)
The Crystal Orb (fantasy short story--writing)
And too many half-started ideas to count

That's a good idea, actually--I should do that the next time I draw up a map. XD

I love your map, Renna dear! I love the names you chose (and how you chose them, too). I think it is a very fine map. :)
