I just registered and it was suggested to me that I should start integrating into the community here. In early 2009 I started a RPG worldbuilding project. Since environment is key to that, the first step was to draw a map. I had no previous knowledge of graphics software outside of drawing squares in MS-Paint so I tried some Inkscape, a borrowed copy from either CC2 or Dundjinni and some others but ultimately decided to use Autorealm. After a good deal of frustration and patience I got something that, while nowhere near some beautiful art I have seen here, was enough to kick-start my project (and campaign). Now, if possible, I would like to refine my initial drawings with new techniques and/or tools. Suggestions, criticism and tips are more than welcome.
