Longtime conworlder in London
Hello! I've been drawing maps of my own fantasy universe since I was a kid. I remember my friends moaning that you could tell a bad fantasy novel because it had a map at the front - and though I often agreed, I do love the maps of imagine worlds. It just amazes me how bad some of those published maps are, with rivers flowing uphill and totally implausible geography!
I stumbled on Cartographers Guild whilst googling for advice about mapping in Photoshop and CC3, and I'm totally impressed by the standard of maps you guys are producing. I thought mine were good but I'm going to have to rework mine before I dare publish them! Perhaps I might just call them WIP...
I have a combination of hand-drawn maps which I've remodelled in Fractal Terrains and polished up in Photoshop, I might post some of them if I'm feeling brave!
Great to have you here. Don't feel self conscious about posting up what you have! Enjoy your stay and looking forward to seeing your work.
