hello everyone,

Im kind of shy when it comes to all this forum stuff, I have a tendency to just read and observe what others are doing but cant normally really get myself to start writing. so now after I've have used several days trying to get it together enough so I could make a prober introduction, I finally succeeded.

the reason I stumbled into this great site is due to a fantasy story that I want to write, so I was out looking for inspiration.

I then found this site and noticed some of the amazing maps that have been produced and shown here, and so I decided I wanted to try and create a map of the world. it turned out that it wasn't as easy as I had hoped for since I had basically never put my eyes on photoshop before I read that it was the tool that a lot of people used for mapping here.

but after having read through a few basic guides I decided to try some of the tutorials made by the members. I failed utterly at creating the map of the continent I had planned, but yesterday I tried this one that Eneini had for creating a city and it actually went pretty well. not only did I make a map, I also got lots of ideas for my story.

that is about all the introduction you will get for now, thou if anyone would like to help me out at getting better at this map making feel free to hit me up, because it rocks!
