    Default Hello

    Hey, I just wanted to say hello to everyone here

    Recently I got interested in cartography by browsing some galleries on deviantart. I was especially amazed by the works of Djekspek so I've decided to give it a go and try to follow his fantasy map tutorial.

    I cannot really draw, I made a few tries over the years reading books and copying stuff, but it's not really my thing. However drawing this small island was really fun and I felt quite satisfied when I finished the sketch.

    So, here I am among great artists presenting my little sketch of Awyr Island and hoping to learn from the best

    Oh and sorry for the paper

    Welcome to the Guild, The Mappiest Place on the Web

    You will be happy to know that DJ is a high;y thought of member here at the guild and he is quite active too. I can see some of his influence in your map and I like the line wieght giving the image depth.

    Also, have some rep for posting a nice start to a great map in your first post here at the Guild

    You should also start up a WIP (Work In Progress) thread with this because this is where you will get a LOT of help with all kinds of questions and suggestions on how to make it better.

    Welcome to the Guild Diego Malatesta! That's a nice first map sketch, especially for a guy who doesn't fancy himself much of a drawer. Just imagine what you could do with a bit more practice! Look forward to seeing where this might lead.

    Cheers,
