Hi, my name is Oliver, I'm 33 and I live in Luxembourg. Among many others, some of my interests are drawing (or rather, playing around with PS), fantasy and, in a more general way, science (which would include geography and history) So what better way to combine these interests than to join these boards and learn from fellow artists?

My weapons of choice are PS and a Wacom Bamboo tablet.
I was going to redraw a map of Middle-Earth I found on the net (huge file, suitable for printing as a poster) but since I can't find mountain/tree brushes that please me, and since I wanted to learn new techniques, I'm going for a more realistic approach (instead of a "drawn map") and try my hand at height maps etc...

Anyway looking forward to participating in this community.
