View Full Version : A small introduction

Hello everyone,

My name is Abe, I'm an IT student from the Netherlands.
Having worked on websites and such for about 7-8 years, I have quite a bit of experience with Photoshop.
However, I've never done any cartography before and I'm currently working on my own Pathfinder campaign.
I've managed to create a worldmap in Photoshop a few weeks ago and I'm currently attempting to create more localised maps and city maps.

My map (http://abuh.nl/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/map.jpg)

I'm hoping to gain some inspiration and helpful tips and tricks from this place, and maybe even contribute some of them myself once I get some more experience.

Looks very pretty. Not sure what the big cracks are for but the do add something.

Thanks :)

The cracks are just there to look pretty. Now that you mentioned it though, I do think it's a good idea to remove them so it doesn't confuse anyone by suggesting some sort of landmark.
