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.

The Land of Gold and Silver Apples: this map was my (winning) entry to the February/March Lite Challenge, Map a Fairytale.
Really really, nice mountains !! and coast line. the background birds could be a little more scattered uneven, lighter? but nice job
This is probably my favorite map on the forum. It's so detailed, homely, unique, and really brings out the spirit of this type of "story mapping". Much like a well written book, it captures a feeling , that few maps even manage to get close to. This would be my first pick at a cartographers choice out of what I have seen here the past year.
I just stumbled upon this. Wow, this is beautiful. Not only as a map but as a story as well. One of the best maps I have seen here. Congrats!
