Very nice, though I'm not entirely sure how to envision "less then 0" level, when it's attached to the sea costs...

Is it a vector or pixel drawing, or something else?

There are plenty of areas below sea level that are situated against or near a sea on Earth, take for example the Netherlands or some regions around the Caspian Sea.

I'd say this is a vector drawing, although I'm not too sure what you mean with these.

Thanks for the comment!

I know there are such regions, though they are either artificially built (Netherlands) or below "average" sea level as Caspian Sea is not connected to the worldwide ocean, which is considered the zero level (of course, there are differences between some seas, e.g. the levels of Red Sea and Mediterranean differes about 17 meters, if I remember correctly). On the other side, it's your wolrd, I'm just interested :)

By vector drawing I mean using things like curves or polygones for drawing, while the other is mainly hand-drawing by tools like brushes or pens.

And you're welcome

Oh yes, I just noticed that the part of Hereed Hoth that's connected to the sea doesn't have a higher area around it. I suppose I'll just use the idea that there's sand dunes at those areas then, or something... But yeah, you make a valid point. Thanks for the feedback.

No problem, I'm glad my comments weren't annoying - I'm sometimes overly concentrated on details like that.

A translation of the names would be interesting.

How do you come up with the names? Do they mean anything in particular?

Yes, most of them have meanings! If you're interested in their meanings, I could translate them.
