CC3 Annual Map #1 – Mercator Style

Alright, here goes, the first of my CC3 Annual Challenge maps. This is, as stated, in the style of iconic map maker Mercator. Took me about 2 hours to complete, give or take. The world is my own creation, and at present I don’t know more about it than the place names.
Looking at it again, I must admit I did a rather sloppy job. No scale bar, and no title for the map either. Haven’t particularly followed any real world examples either when it comes to natural geography, so this will definitely be something I’ll consider more in the future.
