Hi everybody,

I came across this website while searching for nice examples of maps and good tutorials. I hope to find a lot of knowledge and experience in the forums and presented work. I myself am a hobbyist in cartography, from childhood on I'd like to draw maps and make up stories that go along with the maps. Recently I've restarted my drawing with more realistic maps, partly based on elements used in the "Bosatlas", a popular atlas in The Netherlands. The original maps from Middle Earth in the books of Tolkien are a great example, however, I'd like to be able to draw more realistic mountain ranges.

Furthermore I'm quite unexperienced with communication through forums etc, even though I've spend half my life on the internet ;).
