Here's a map I've been working on for a while, detailing the section of my novel's world where most of the first book takes place. It's the result of some experimentation, lots of inspiration from web sites like Cartographer's Guild and Deviant Art, and informative tutorials from people like Jonathan Roberts at FantasticMaps. Just as with the writing, my style is evolving and improving the more of it I do (funny how that works.)
In the map you can see the trail that Dal, Sven, and Lars travel in the foothills above the Wetwood. You can see the hint of the ruins of Krona-Pri were the ambush happened, and the rescue attempt is made (you haven't had a chance to read about that yet). Sorn village is there, where Copper and the rest meet up with Furg, their guide to the swamp...
Incidentally, should you wonder how a swamp could fill a highland area near a cliff, here is the explanation. The area of the Wetwood is a vast and shallow basin, lined with clays, and the cliff region is raised slightly, forming a lip (except where the great waterfall drains the flow from the swamp and empties into the Weftal by Everreed.) I was inspired a bit for this "high swamp" concept by the boggy area on top of the island of Kauai, which drains into a spectacular canyon.
Everything was drawn by hand in on the iPad in ProCreate, the best drawing program available in the App Store. I use a stylus when I draw, usually an Adonit Touch or a Hex3 Jaja. The text labels are the only thing that was done in Photoshop.
