Meh, you're learning. Trust me, if you saw the maps I made in the beginning, you'd feel a lot better about yours.

What are contours?

Contours are the lines drawn at the exterior edges of an object, surrounding it.
For example this reply box is surrounded by a grey line. That's the box's contour.
The word literally means (I think): surrounding.
Worry not about making bad maps at first, just keep practicing, use references, try to do maps outside your projects just to try new things... Keep doing it and one day you'll be one of the best mappers around!

Dunno why, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's because the nostalgia crowd were getting salty.
