    Default Lezales' here

    Hey everyone !

    Let me introduce myself. My name is Sam, I'm a 21 years old musician from Montreal, Canada. I'm a musician, drawer and writer and I really enjoy all of those activities. But what I like the most is actually writing complex stories. And I also very much enjoy creating medias for the worlds in which those stories unfold, including maps. Most of my stuff is fantasy as I've read a lot of that and it really comes naturally for me but I'm also a very big fan of Steampunk kind of worlds. I've always drew my maps myself but for multiple reasons I always felt that wasn't the best way to do it. So I started processing those maps digitally or just plainly creating my maps in software such as Photoshop but I never had much results...

    I've been working on a universe I've imagined for the last 11 years and I have to say there's a lot of story imagined for that universe and when I say a lot, I mean a huge lot. Unfortunatly not all of those stories are on paper, there's only 24 hours in a day ! I've recently felt the need to spend more time working on that universe, which is called Alhenkell and is in the dark fantasy type (think of a dark Warcraft II). And I've felt the need to start the project for real with a real novel or something. I've also had a second story in head and wanted to get some concrete stuff to organise things in my mad and a map is always a good place to start ! So for any of the two projects, I've went on google for a way to do real map. Think maybe half and hour of search online and here I am on what seems to be a really awesome and mature community. Stuff I love.

    So I'm planning to spend some times with you guys, learn the ways or the cartographer and maybe share some of my work with you and of course view yours !
    Thanks in advance !

    Welcome to the Guild.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
