In this very special rendition of Worldbuilding Wednesday, I’m going to give you a step-by-step guide to how I made the tetonic plates for my conworld Erziyye. This guide is meant to help with designing scientifically plausible (and neat-looking), but not scientifically accurate maps. Some worldbuilders (like myself) enjoy the idea of having fairly detailed geological information on their maps but may Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Step-by-Step for Tectonic Plates
That’s right, in this post I’m gonna show you my current currents! Yay! In the end of last week I had some lovely worldbuilding session with my friend and eternal geology-consultant Grace. My currents are now awesome-looking! Much better than before. I get so thrilled when I look at them, haha! Here they are: Click for a bigger picture. Doesn’t Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Current Currents!
So, I know I posted my tectonic plates a few weeks back already buuuuut… I kind of redid them. Entirely. They’re much awesomer now! I wanna say a big thank you to my friend Grace, who is a fantastic and patient and knowledgable and has helped me loads with getting my plates in order! Here are my plates now: Pretty Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Tectonic Plates, My Wildcards
I am on a bit of a worldbuilding high right now. I’m getting some awesome feedback on my Erziyye map from a writer friend and geology geek, and basically all I want to do is work on the map right now. Sadly work, this cold and my slightly obsessive need for feedback from said friend on changes I make is Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Clean Lines
What’s this? A worldbuilding Wednesday post actually on a Wednesday! Amazing! Today I bring you… that’s right, more maps! Sorry, just not done with ’em yet! I’m having a lot of fun though, so I don’t mind. Recently I’ve been adding some layers with information on them to my map, the sort of stuff that’ll be useful to know when Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Attack of the little red arrows
…of printer ink! This is the MS for my next big project. Rougly 105 pages which took my wee printer a good long time to write. I drafted this project during Camp NaNo in April, and it is chaos! It’s totally anachronic (not in a good way!) and has a bunch of viewpoint characters with very different lenghts of sections (two have Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – That lovely smell…
I haven’t had time to do much worldbuilding since last week because I was away for the weekend, but I did manage a bit of progress. I feel I’m getting close to being done enough with my map to transfer it to a digital medium and start adding colors and textures. Exciting! Tonight, I worked a bit on a series Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Islands!
This week’s been a bit crazy, particularly today. In between neglected day job tasks, laundry and preparing for a family event this weekend, I wasn’t sure I’d have time to do anything with my map today. Earlier in the week I was a bit lazy, so I haven’t gotten as far as I would’ve liked, but tonight I got some Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Some map details
Hey, it’s Worldbuilding Wednesday again! How time has flown this week. My world building progress this past week has been of the “slow but steady” variety. I’ve read up on map projections, spent a lot of time looking at maps of Earth and fictional worlds and sketching various continental setups for Erziyye since I realized I wasn’t totally happy with my first Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Continents taking shape
As I’ve mentioned in my Monday updates lately, I’m currently working on a big worldbuilding project. Since I thought it might be fun to share my work, and since I have an undying and probably unhealthy love for alliteration, I am hereby introducing Worldbuilding Wednesday, during which I’ll post about my progress, the problems I run into and how I Continue reading Welcome to Worldbuilding Wednesday
