Hi guys,

First of all, sorry for my English, it's not my language. I found this site by accident, there was a tutorial on youtube about how to draw a map in Photoshop and a link to this site, and I kind of liked the idea of creating a map. I made an account and here I am.

Now, this is my first map ever, I never drew maps before. It's not even supposed to be a map, in fact, it's more like an illustration of a dream, I never intended to draw coordonates, stroke lines, legend and names. I used only Photoshop, since is the only program I have acces to and I try to master it.

Well, I hope you like it. :)

Cheers!

That, my friend, is a fantastic first effort. Simply beautiful.

I also gave you some rep, one for your map, and two I like the green button looks better than the blue ;)

Agreed! Welcome to the Guild altceva! That is an excellent first post. If I could ask, which YouTube video did you find that was linked to us?

Welcome to the Guild altceva!!!

If thats you first map AND your just trying to learn Photoshop, I hate to see what you can create once you hate it mastered. I gave you some rep also. Good job.


@Arcana: Did you also change some rep settings? I just noticed that There is an added choice on the rep popup for "I disapprove". Does that mean we can now give people negative rep???

and now back to our regularly scheduled fawning over altceva's first map...

We've been able to give negative rep for quite some time, but hopefully it will never have to be given out. ;)

There has always been a disapprove selection that I know of, because going back through some of my own REP it appears I have positive comments that appear to be negative rep given.

Welcome and excellent map, almost feels like I'm floating above the clouds looking down upon the land...very evocative.

How odd; I don't have that power. Does it perhaps have something to do with a certain new group Joe's been added to?

Back on point: Beautiful image! Thank you for taking the time to come here and share it with us.

Very nice first map. I've been at this(photoshop and mapping) for quite some time, and it would still bring a smile to my face to create something like that. Y'all, my friend, are clearly an artist. Reppy...
