Hello! I'm pretty thrilled to have found this forum. I write fantasy and have been making maps of my settings both interior and exterior for years. However, because art has never been my strength, they've always been very basic. Line drawings on graph paper with zero illustration and no colors. Initially my goal was only to have floor plans and world maps clear and detailed enough for me to know which rooms were across the hall from each other and which towns were next to each other, but lately I've decided that I'm going to try to work on my skills as a cartographer and artist. I've always dreamed of being able create worlds using both illustration/cartography and writing, but I decided early on just to stick to the writing because it comes easier to me. Not any more. I've thought it over and it seems foolish to give up on something just because I'm not very good at it yet... that's what practice is for.
Anyway, I'm very happy to be here!
