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.

Well, this is inspirational. Congrats.
Thanks much Scruffy, glad you like it.
Love this work of art!
It's similar to the idea I have in my mind for a story inspired by the Cardiff Castle.
I'm still yet to create a map but hope to soon.
Thanks much, hope to see your work soon!
okay not to fanboy all over you but how long did this take?
The WIP thread said I worked on it 1 month, though i obviously didn't work on it 24/24
