I've been lurking around for the past month or two and admiring the maps ("Ooooooo...." mostly) posted on here, but finally decided to make an account.

Anyway, my name is Aaron. I have a map drawn in an A4 sketchbook and have it open on photoshop as I type this. These things obviously take more than a few nights obviously but I'm hoping to get a nice shiny result to a vast world that I would consider a big playground for a multitude of stories in the years to come. Some parts of the map are already named, borrowing a mixture of Old Norse, Old English and some Latin words in varied locations (yes, I am going the Tolkien route at the moment). It's going to be a lifelong project I do in my spare time, and it probably won't even involve a single map but an entire cosmology. For now, I'm concentrating on this one map, but I'm hoping that I can learn a lot more from these forums and speed up the process.

Thanks for reading.
