Welcome, Felwynn! Looking forward to seeing your creations...please post some when you get a chance.
Before starting, I keen to precise that I'm French. I apologize in advance for my eventual language mistakes.
My principal interests are drawing, cinema, videogames and role play.
I'm 22 years old, and I've made maps since I can hold a pen. My first influences came from XIXth century earth globes (I've always dreamed to get an authentic one^^) and Tolkien's maps for the Middle Earth. I especially was fascinated by the map of "The Hobbit", because I found large parts of mystery, due to the angerthas inscriptions and the lack of geographical clues to situate the Shire. So, before I invented stories or imaginated characters, I created maps of fantasy worlds, with many details, but in total improvisation. I was about 9.
Now, I'm (or I was, quite recently) a fine arts student. Maps are not my predilection subject anymore, but I keep drawing some, especially for Role playing games.
I discovered C'sG on RPTools and it gave me a new motivation to work on maps. It's the first time I can meet a community to share this passion, and I hope you'll like my creations.
Welcome to the Guild!
Glad to have you here.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

Welcome, Felwynn, Really good to see you here. I use an old copy of light wave now and again and occasionally blender and do textured worlds as well and it seems that I am doing the texturing in a similar way that you are but with different apps too. I am also reading "Le Hobbit" at mo but I have been on it... er... a while now
Below is a map that a group of us have been working on for a long time as part of the Me-DEM (Middle Earth - Digital Elevation Model) group. I did some of the texturing on this one. Anyway, I thought you would like it.
Really nice maps posted too.
