Well these is some example how some new map makers can start create some map.Ofcourse these is mine working stages, and maybe can help.
Stage1-Like you see,you need to find some map who is relative with yours idea(in mine case these is Western Front)
Stage2-When you find map,then its need to remove all unnesesary things,and left only Western Europe borders, and prepare to create new continents and new borders.
Stage3-4-Now these is stages when you start to research for names and start to create Continents and borders.
Stage5-Now when you finish with all things from stage 3-4,its time for add colours.
Stage6-7--these is peroid in work,when you must experiment with all kind of colour options and to find what is best colours for your map.
Stage 8-now its time to put all your effort to create Bonus Area,and to fill with all relevant and required things(Continent names-Bonus walues-other gimicks)
Stage 9-The job is over and map is finish.
if you want to know how im create other maps,i will be happy to give short storry,like these.
