Maps wait for no one!

So it's about time I dusted myself off, and got back to posting...instead of lurking.

For those that recall the name, indeed, Yana is back around for insanity, creativity, and too many written words.

Long time writer and artist, returning home, and finally weened myself off of those digital mmo games. I've been running an Exalted tabletop game for local friends, and plotting artworks with Olan...and some others of my own.

But wanted to gave a wave, and call out to great old friends that I have missed dearly.

Yanamari -

I just love your maps and have to ask, do you use a program for this? Are they hand-drawn? How do you make sure wonderful drawings?

I draw everything by hand. They are using my trusty mechanical pencils. I use a .5 Papermate Clear Point (years and years old, and green) and a .3 Staedtler Mars and a Staedtler Mars Plastic eraser thingie. The paper I use is a 9x12 Canson Universal Sketch paper. All of that I bought at Hobby Lobby.

I scan with a super cheap scanner that I've had for 13 years. It keeps chugging along. The only art program I use on the computer is GIMP, a free open source option to Photoshop (my old Photoshop won't run on new Windows), which is surprising me daily with options.

Other things required, coffee and my ipod.

GW2 was fun for about a month. But no end game just left me boooored. I did rp alot, but just missed the ability to run uber stuffs. WoW held me for years.

But the lure of table tops has reclaimed me. Been running an Exalted Solar/Lunar game for about 4 years now. Played till midnight last night.
