    Map My First Post (copy)

    Hi All,

    I have been making maps for as long as I could draw: maps to remember where I hid my treasures, maps to plan troop movements during games of war. You get the idea.

    I stumbled onto your site from the Makezine blog. and the artistry inspired to make a map.

    For location, I chose my childhood home in the corn fields of Indiana. The map is mostly done. I only need to add some more labels to show locations of different adventures of my adolescence.

    I pulled some screenshots from Google maps and pasted them into Photoshop. Then I started drawing in the houses and roads. The trees, and fields are courtesy of StarRaven's great brushes.

    For your consideration, my first map not made with pencils and crayons. I appreciate your feedback.

    Welcome to the Guild. Nice lil map. I've always wanted to make a map of my childhood from memory like this.
