Hi everyone! I'm a video game artist by trade, and even though it doesn't come up quite as often as I'd like in my professional work, fantasy cartography has been a favorite hobby of mine for years. I've been lurking here for inspiration for a while now and thought I would say hello and share one of my more finished practice maps with the community at large:

This one started off as following this fantastic demonstration for technique: Five Minute Map
(I believe that's from Torstan, though I may be mistaken)

Than I sort of went of the rails and spent the rest of the afternoon painting it up into my own style, it's a little rough around the edges, but I'm pretty happy with it for an afternoon project!

I'll have to post more often, this forum has been enormously helpful to me!
