hey, all!

i'm kind of a newb to all this heh. i come from the world of digital/traditional art and forum based RPing and was led here by a fellow fantasy world building artist on deviantart. she made a wicked sweet map of her world and it got me to thinking that my RP world could use an updating :lol:

anyway my real name's natasha. i turned 27 in sept. and am an art school drop out turned food/beverage management enthusiast XD. love art and fashion and now apparently creating fantasy maps!

attached you can see my only attempts at map making. they are actually all of the same world that keeps going through identity crises due to my constant second guessing. the one in colour is the very first, the sepia toned one is the second (from only a few months ago), and the last is a rough sketch of the world to be once i poke around here some more. i don't know how active i'll be since i'm painstakingly trying to build an RP from the ground up but i will try.

sorry for the nooooovel haha.

thanks, guys! :D

in my defense i should mention that the first coloured version is almost six years old now XD. it's crap i know. all those maps were sketched traditionally first and i usually just use photoshop to slap up some texture and make it look old and parchment-ish and call it finished. so glad i stumbled upon this place, can't wait to pretty up my maps!!

thanks again for the welcome!

Welcome. You'll be just fine. You have an eye for color and you are an artist as well so you can go quite far.
