    Default Hello!

    Hi all,
    I'm a fantasy writer who is looking to become more skilled at map-making, not only to better my own world-building when I write, but the process itself is terribly fascinating. Only made vague, rough maps up until now, but I have 10 years of Photoshop skill under my belt... sure hope that will come in handy.

    Looking forward to learning from you!

    Welcome Duskblood,

    having some experience with PS surely helps - I am very thankful that I've worked with the program for a couple of years before getting into mapping
    The tut-section will offer a vast amount of PS related tuts covering almost any style you may wish to use.

    Hi Duskblood,

    One of our best mappers, Ramah, came here as an author looking to make a map for his book. As far as I know he still hasn't finished the book, but he's become phenomenally good at drawing maps!
