I've been looking trough the forum and i couldn't found a tutorial.

I've already made the land, but i don't know how to do the forests and the mountains

Gidde, myself, and a few others have some tutorials on making mountains. There are quite a few others also for mountains and trees. Also, the in the resource section, there are quite few premade tree brushes as well as mountain brushes. of course, if you want a hand drawn look... you have to hand draw it.....

Also, a lot depends on your image manipulation tool of choice (or necessity if you have a price limit and no software already).

There is a a tutorial on how to make that specific style of maps in GIMP/PS. It is called Hand-Drawn Mapping (for the Artistically Challenged) (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10655-Hand-Drawn-Mapping-(for-the-Artistically-Challenged)&highlight=ARTISTICALLY+CHALLENGED). It teaches how to make that style of mountains, forests, textures, etc. The map's brushes are also provided. The tutorial's author, Gidde is the same person who made that map.
