I was looking up some earlier versions of my map of Occitania and I was struck by the massive difference between my first version and my latest version.
For my first version, I was happy to have a land, and a reasonable looking shoreline.
My latest version, though, pops with color and character. The hills, mountains, and forests really feature well, and the slowly increasing number of labels creates a better sense of a world.
It’s so nice to just look back and take stock to see how my skills have advanced. It makes me excited to see what I can do with more practice!
