Hello! I thought IŽd introduce myself, I am a 26 year old swedish man, lured in by a post on the bay12games newspage of a mapmaking challenge where you are to use a Dwarf Fortress ascii map and make a map out of it. Since I have been hooked in that game for a long time, as well as making a few maps now and then for my roleplaying group and simply for fun, I thought IŽd give it a shot, and here I am!

I mostly draw fantasy maps by hand, using pencils, watercolors and ink. I like to draw in a graphical style with cities and town represented with little cities and towns, and any other intresting landmark standing out clearly from the background. I dont really mind if it looks a bit childish or cartoony.
I am heavily inspired of maps of old, with lots of little illustrations to show the mapreader what to expect of the lands pictured there.

I hope to learn alot from here, I have already seen the work of some really talented people here and I hope to see lots more.
