    Post Greetings from a Worldbuilder

    This looks like a nice place and just the type of crowd I need to be around at the moment as I am in the middle of worldbuilding my own world of "Agrobathe".
    It's a fantasy world that I plan to base a novel in once I've fleshed out the world and maps a bit more.

    I'm also working on Fantasy Art in order to bring my world to life with digital, pencil, and paint.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to the guild mate, sounds like you have come to the right place. I hope you find these forums useful, I definitely have and I have only been a member for a couple weeks! There are some awesome map-making tutorials, software tutorials, style tutorials, and tons and TONS of maps by some very talented people to draw some inspiration from. Good luck and have fun!

    Woot, another Arizonan to commiserate with about the heat. Welcome to the guild.

    Thanks for the welcome. My 2nd day here and already I've created a map using Corel Photo-Paint thanks to a Tutorial I found here. Needs some work and I made a few mistakes, but not a bad first try at map making in Corel Photo-Paint

    @Jaxilon - Aye, today was 112 and all the non-desert vegetation is drying up and dying.

    Pretty interesting, makes me want to get Corel.
