    Post My introduction

    Good day, ladies and gents!

    My name is Frederick, I'm a French-Canadian guy who enjoys the beauty of a map but never really took the time to learn how to make one properly. And I've been a (registered) lurker on here for a while but now I decided to post.

    Mostly, I suck at drawing, be it interior decorations or forests and mountains. I don't want to make a career in map making but I would like to be able to create decent stuff, to help people and just for the hell of it.

    I also sold my graphics tablet years ago (stupid me) but, at least, I sold it with a profit

    I attach a map I created in PhotoShop, it's a bit big and it's in dire need of the aforementioned forests and mountains.

    Thank you for listening to my rant / introduction

    Interesting land mass you have there. I can see possabilities here...

    What do YOU want to do with it?

    Once you figure that out, post it in the WIP forum and and follow-ups you do on it. You will get much more response to any questions you may have concerning map making. And don`t worry, we don't force people to become pros, but sometimes things just fall that way...

    You might also want to look through our Tutorial forum. it is located at the bottom of the main page of the site.

    Have fun and enjoy.

    Fred,

    Go to the tutes... seriously, gold mine down there at the bottom of the forum.

    My advice is to plan it out. Grab some different colours and scribble on it, then refine it later by putting in the details where they need to be.

    Thanks for the welcoming words, people.

    I have been to the Tutorial sections but, as stated, I suck at drawing so it never turns all right.

    I think I'll have to cheat, somehow
