Making a fantasy map with lentils~

First things first: hattip [personal profile] becka_sutton, for showing me this video.

This is my attempt at creating Yet Another Fantasy World via the “pile of stuff on the paper” method.

First attempt: sort of a shark under the US. Not quite the look I wanted.

Second attempt: much closer.

And here’s the draft map!

Next up: Mountains

Edited to add: dimensions


And Atlantis:


(this is for the setting I’ve been working on for a story whose working title is Portal Bound)

P.S. North is to the right on all these. Not sure why the images insist on being rotated.
