Hi all,

My name's ian, i'm a freelance writer over in the UK who has been gaming for, what... over fifteen years now? At the moment, when I am not fending off the horde of cats that I live with I write concept material for RPG's and have recently embarked on the whole crazy-making adventure of designing my own system.

I'm here hoping to get some tips and tricks, learn how to turn my sketches from my pen and paper days into professional maps for my system, and hopefully share with you guys that progress!

Hopefully meet you on the boards proper!

Welcome Ian, try some of the awesome tutorials for the start, and test some styles. Its a long road but in the end I am sure you will find the perfect match for your worlds.

Welcome to the guild, Ian :)

As Schwarzkreuz already said the tutorial area is the best place for a begginer, lots of good tutorials you jsut have to choose. But if you are already an artist I think it will be easier for you to get all the techniques.

Read, draw and post here, lets see what you can do ;)
