View Full Version : Here there be dragons. Or at least I hope so :)

I am so excited.

That being said, hi! Iím Nani. Iím 27, a consummate dork, and a lover of all things fantasy. Also, I have a cat.

I am so thrilled to have found this forum on a random Google search. Iím fortunate enough to make a living doing graphic design and cartography, but things have been a little light on the mapping side for a while now and suffice to say, I miss it. Iíve done fantasy mapping and illustration in the past less as a hobby and more as a dumping ground for all my thoughts and ideas, but with the encouragement of my husband (who has no interest Iím sure in seeing his hand-drawn D&D maps digitally rendered *cough*), Iíd like to get into it further as a way to do something fun and creative on my own time. Imagine my surprise (and obvious delight) to find a forum full of wonderfully talented and creative people. Awesome.

I havenít explored even a fourth of this site (here there be dragons?), so I am very much looking forward to many fangirlish hours of admiring your various works and to talking shop with you all!

Also, Iím kind of a forum newb, so if my formatting stinks feel free to hit me with sticks. Or, you know, correct me.

Welcome, Cynic :)
If it is possible, I'd like to see some of your works - and I'm sure a lot of people feel the same.

Thanks Moe :) I'm looking forward to posting some of my work as soon as possible. Unfortunately I don't have much of anything completed that's pure fantasy - I'm hoping to comb the forums for some good technique ideas and amp up my motivation to complete some long-standing projects.

welcome to the guild - and please note that it doesn't have to be fantasy maps, we got people mapping space/sci-fi, battlemaps and boardgames - so feel free to post anything you'd like to share - and the WIP threads are for showing your work, while you work :)
