    Post First map - already having fun

    So glad I found this forum - always thought I was the only one with some weird map fetish.

    Setting up a system like this at home ( http://www.penpaperpixel.org/tutoria...topprojection/) and found this group while trying to figure out the best way to put together maps. Thanks to you folk, I figured out the best way was to just be creative and DIY.

    So here's a quicky I did this morning - comments/crits welcome!

    Welcome to the forums!

    That's a great map. I like the style. What software are you using for the map/the projection?

    Thanks! I used photoshop for the map, and I think I'll just be going with straight photoshop for the projection system - I think it would take me longer to "learn" another system than to just work with what I already have.

    Love the style of the map. The colour choice and clean lines are great.

    My only crit\suggestion would be the placement of the "S" for the secret door. I always recess them so they are actually behind the flat of the wall a little bit. Then I continue the line of the wall so that they are not obvious.

    That allows me to reveal the room to the walls and then further for the secret doors.

    I know exactly what you mean. Welcome home rkmase. Welcome home.

    PS: Nice first map! Great job with the shadows. It gives it a very simple depth while being just enough to go with the modeled furniture.
