    Wip First Map - Empis

    So, it's a very addicting pastime you gentlemen have. I decided yesterday evening that it might crack open my writer's block if I drew myself a map, stumbled on this forum, and pretty much lost the next 6 hours of my life.

    Anyway, so I'm fairly pleased with where I am now (relatively speaking), but I'm hoping to still add labels, a few landmarks, and maybe even towns (it's a low DPI image, but I'd hate to have to settle for just dots). We'll see how it goes. Mostly I'm just excited with what looks to be a new hobby for me.

    And thanks to the excellent 'Saderan Tutorial', without which my artistically talentless self would undoubtedly have given up about five minutes in.

    That's for sure. It's pretty bad when I look forward to my day off so I can have 10 or 12 hours to map...

    And welcome to the Guild, Sift, and have some rep for posting your first WIP.

    Ditto what Di said.
