How or what did you use to make this map?

Honestly it's mostly hand drawn! I used to have a bunch of map coloring assignments in school that I wound up really enjoying, and that's how I learned my methods used here. I really like geography and mapping so I used what I know about different types of land masses. Otherwise I just kind of doodled out some general shapes for continents and went from there. It's best not to keep any coastline too smooth or straight. I also really like outlining the coastline with a darker blue, and then using a lighter blue to add a kind of 'glow' effect for a simple representation of water. I also wound up making my own handwritten typeface using an online type maker, so it was nice and neat and editable but still looked hand drawn.
Also! Though I haven't used this method yet myself, there's a tip I read once about spilling some small macaroni or rice onto a piece of paper, clumping some of it together to form larger continents, and then carefully tracing around the shapes to get an original, randomized map! I hope this helps!
