New Overland Map with Alyssa Faden & Friends
I have been looking and lurking at the maps in the Show and Tell section and all I can say is I am amazed and humbled. I tried for three days to do an Ancient Realms map modeled after the one Loopysue did for Jerry and I while I did not get much of a map, I gained a lot of respect for the amazing skill of the experts on here.
I keep promising myself I am going to buckle down and actually go through all the guides and tutorials and learn how to work in the program instead of cobbling maps together and faking it most of the time. Patience is a virtue, but alas, virtue has never been one of my strengths.
I have been diddling around with maps for a decade and today I just learned from Ralf on a video about copying and pasting effects from one sheet to another. It seemed really OBVIOUS after I heard him say it. That node editing feature is pretty nifty too. (Thank you Loopysue for pointing me to the videos.) I can't even imagine how much frustration I could have avoided if only I took the time to check out the instructions and directions before diving in when I first bought the software.
I gave up on an Ancient Realms map (for the time being at least) and put this one together using Alyssa Faden's style and borrowing a few bitmaps and symbols from others.
