In my last post, Writing a Dark Fantasy Series, I said I was playing with Abode Photoshop to help me visualize my world. My first two tries were a miss. I wanted to make a birds-eye view of my villages but that was a big undertaking for someone who's never used Photoshop.
So, I went small. In my second novel, one of my characters had a house built for all his siblings to, hopefully, live in. Thanks to Diane Carlisle's awesome suggestion, I'm gonna share some of my work. Here's what I imagined his house and property to look like.
I'm using the trial version of Photoshop. This software is pricey and I ain't got it like that. However, I have no intention of giving this up. I'm gonna save some money cause I'm buying me some Photoshop. Using it is a lot of work- this little picture took about 5 hours to do- but it's so fun and helpful.

World Building and Photoshop
Auden is a dark fantasy author. As a kid, she created her own books by folding several construction papers in half and stapling them down the middle, adding her own illustrations. No matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t get away from writing. Darkness and dark thing have always fascinated her.
