My fantasy island treasure map

Hello, Helen!

I  must say, I enjoyed this one very much and realized I liked being able to draw in Photoshop and make my own brushes. It's so much fun and would like to be able to draw digitally even more. I don't know if it's something you would be teaching at some point. If so, I would definitely look forward to it! While I love the hand drawn feel a lot, I would also love to learn to draw  with a more smooth finish. 

Anyway, I think I have been quite ambitious with this map and am happy with the way it turned out :)


I had a couple of issues though throughout and wasn't really able to figure out the reasons. At some point I kept getting this in the beginning:


The other thing is I wanted to color my work but when I fill it with paint, I get brush marks where it looks like I have possibly erased stuff so I went without color :(


The other things is when I went to put in the ocean fill, I selected outside the map but even the island got filled in so i just masked that and hid it with black paint...but would like to understand where I went wrong.


Again, thanks so much for this class. I look forward to your comments and reply.

Have a great weekend!

Kind regards,

Khadijah Lloyd
