So this map shows the powerful Qeshtari Empire, straddling the equator with arid zones both in the north and south. It was created as a personal project, mostly to get the hang of some new techniques. I think it worked out pretty well! Since this wasn't for some elaborate setting or anything, place names were invented on the spot and there's no backstory to it whatsoever, but I hope I managed to get some authentic feeling going nevertheless.
