    Default Hello to all, from Brazil =)

    Hello everybody,

    So i've already made some maps, and i read lots of things from this forum, tutorials and the work of so many people that i can't count. Well i play RPG, actually i'm a Dugeon Master (i guess that is the word in english), so i have to do lots of maps for my campaings.

    Unfortunately i don't have a scanner (here they are expensive and i don't use much) so i can't post my hand-drawn maps, i tried to take a picture but didn't work all right but i'm thinking in a way to post them here so you can criticize them as much as you want.

    Well, thats it, hope you can understand, my english is not that good...

    When taking photos of your art, it's all about the light. Outdoors or under a window on an overcast day is ideal. You want lots of light cast evenly across the surface. Then it's just a matter of getting as close to perpendicular as you can and filling your lens with the picture. And focus, obviously!

    About the picture: Yeah, maybe that was my problem, lights. Actually i tried to take a picture during the night, with the lamp on with and without flash, it looked awful. Well this weekend i'm gonna try ur tip =)
