    Default Hi from a new member

    Greetings everyone!


    I've been lurking here a few days now and thought I would finally introduce myself. I don't quite know what to put down here except that I'm a map making rookie. I'm interested in making some maps for my Pathfinder RPG campaign. They would include dungeons and cities and possibly an overland map as well. Right now my "world" is confined to a single sheet of quad-ruled graph paper, but hopefully as my campaign grows in depth, so will my world. WIth that being said, I don't have a whole lot of free time to devote to this hobby right now. Any advice for a beginner would be much appreciated.


    Regards,


    Jay

    Welcome to the guild, my best advice is to keep trying. Every time you draw or render something, you learn a bit more and next time it will be better/easier. Don't be afraid to experiment, and definitely hit up some of the amazing talents here for advice.

    and the best way to hit ppl up here is to post a WIP (Work In Progress) thread with your work and if you hit any snags or have quesstions about techniques, ask them there.

    There is also a sticky thread at the top of this forrum call Quick Start Guide to Mapping (or something like that) that is a great read for those who just took the plunge into mapping.
    Art Critic = Someone with the Eye of an Artist, Words of a Bard, and the Talent of a Rock.

    Please take my critiques as someone who Wishes he had the Talent
