    Default Hello from aqua!

    Hello broz and sis!
    Before i start, i want to say tsorry about my weak english, my first language is portuguese but i will try do my bast in the language

    My name is Fernando, 32 yo, work with 3D drawing using Autodeks Inventor, Solid Works and Catia. Always loved maps, and tried undertand how ppl do so amazing maps possible find in internet. So doing a work for a friend, started serch for some maps and found Cartographers Guild, and got amazed with all the job and the friendly community.

    Hello from aqua!-dsc035491-745110.jpg
    Yes, me after find Cartographer's Guild

    U know, like all RPG players, i tried do my maps in machine, but mayeb for dont know all tools of Photoshp, started to believe that is impossible make maps with this software. So i came to here, found a lots of tutos, and started to learn everthing possible. Want to find Saderam and say my true tks coz his tuto (Saderan - A tutorial) make my dream a possible target now.
    Tried maps using a lots of images that find in internet, specialy tiles from RPG maker, but never got happy coz i just copied, nothing mine and personal.

    Here, in this community i fell possible make my dream a reality and create a entire continent full of history and fact that i got in my 17 years of RPG. I tried introduce myself before, but shy to not show anything and sounds a bit leecher of ppl resources.Before Cartographer i was this:

    Hello from aqua!-20100525-0153.jpg Hello from aqua!-20100525-1241.jpg

    And after Saderan's Tuto i started it:

    Hello from aqua!-sem%25u00252520t%2525c3%2525adtulo-2%252520c%2525c3%2525b3pia1211neve.jpg

    Ok that is all, it is a small step for the others, but a big advace for me
    Hope soon start help ppl here and can show nice maps

    Well, First things First..Welcome to the Guild, The Mappiest Place on the Web

    Secondus, Have some rep for posting maps in your First Post

    Thirdly, VERY nice start you have there!! Glad you were able to get over the shyness, because one of the best things we do here is get people from being starting mappers to becomeing Great Cartographers. And I like your progress already. I would suggest starting a WIP (Work In Progress) thread because you will get more help, comments praise and critique over there than having your maps "hidden" in the Intro threads. Don't forget that every one here, regardless of current ability and skills, started at the very beginning of the Mapping Journey. Make no mistake....it IS a journey, but it is one well worth it and best done with eyes open in wonder at all the places you end up going.

    Welcome to the Guild Aquarits! I'm really glad to here that Tear's tutorial has been such a help to you, and I can definitely understand your desire to have a sense of ownership over your maps. Looking forward to seeing more of your creations as time goes on.

    Cheers,
    -Arsheesh
