    Default Hi everyone + first shared map

    Hi everyone! I'm a video game artist by trade, and even though it doesn't come up quite as often as I'd like in my professional work, fantasy cartography has been a favorite hobby of mine for years. I've been lurking here for inspiration for a while now and thought I would say hello and share one of my more finished practice maps with the community at large:

    Hi everyone + first shared map-praticemap_01.jpg

    This one started off as following this fantastic demonstration for technique: Five Minute Map
    (I believe that's from Torstan, though I may be mistaken)

    Than I sort of went of the rails and spent the rest of the afternoon painting it up into my own style, it's a little rough around the edges, but I'm pretty happy with it for an afternoon project!

    I'll have to post more often, this forum has been enormously helpful to me!

    Very nice map -- the mountains seem particularly well drawn and painted. And welcome!

    Nicely done - and worthy of a smidgen of rep just for being a map in your first post :-). But beyond that, the map has merit too.

    Welcome to CG!

    Thanks for the warm welcomes! Now I have a bit of extra incentive to actually polish up some of the maps I've done for tabletop games I've been in!
