The Cartographers’ Guild is a forum created by and for map makers and aficionados, a place where every aspect of cartography can be admired, examined, learned, and discussed. Our membership consists of professional designers and artists, hobbyists, and amateurs—all are welcome to join and participate in the quest for cartographic skill and knowledge.
Although we specialize in maps of fictional realms, as commonly used in both novels and games (both tabletop and role-playing), many Guild members are also proficient in historical and contemporary maps. Likewise, we specialize in computer-assisted cartography (such as with GIMP, Adobe apps, Campaign Cartographer, Dundjinni, etc.), although many members here also have interest in maps drafted by hand.

Incredible, it seems so simple zoomed out and then you zoom in and see the details!
Okay, I don't have the words. Awesome piece of art here. I'll just leave it at that...
Thank you ! Though It's a very old map of mine and I would do it in other way if ever I had to redo it.
I guess my inexperience really shows because I think this map looks awesome. Your professionalism is apparent as you critique your own work and accept compliments humbly. If I wanted to go with a colorful map, I would definitely like this look.
