    Default Hi

    Hello, my name is Cold and I've been sober for 3 minutes.

    /for serious now

    Hi guys, I'm just another artist who has discovered that he likes the idea of cartography. I'm 26, and have been drawing in a recreational sense for just over 26 years. I struggle with serious talk, love pen and ink, and envy ctrl+z. My buddy asked me recently if I had any interest in hand drawing a map of Westeros for him. I don't have the attention span or retention skills to read something the size of "..Fire and Ice", so naturally I had no idea what exactly he was asking me to draw. So, I did what anyone would do: googled "map of Westeros" ..and here I am.

    Oh, and I have a goldendoodle named Engelbert, she is like a daughter to me and I don't care if that annoys anyone. She is expletively awesome.

    Anyway, I've seen some awesome work on the forums already and look forward towards digging through the archives and finding more, as well as some day adding to the collection. For an idea of where I am at as far as level of art goes, here's the latest piece I've finished:

    Looking forward to being a part of the guild

    Welcome, Cold! Really nice textures and shadows on that… individual Looks like some anatomical reference would improve your drawing, but for maps, anatomy is maybe not so important Looking forward to seeing your Westeros map, and/or anything else you want to show!
