I've been making maps for about a year and a half. I have mostly used non digital methods-pencils and colored pencils mainly though I have experimented using ink. I only recently began to use the computer to enhance the maps.

Spiral notebooks are very annoying if you want to scan something off a page of one.:x

I attached one of the maps that I've enhanced on the computer.

I use Paint.Net (NOT PAINT-no offence intended to anyone but people confuse the two regularly) mostly. I mainly use it to enhance maps once they are scanned in.

Welcome to the Guild, BlueDragon. It's good to have more hand drawn mappers here!

I use Paint.Net ...

I have played with it and think it is a good program (great that it is free)... but as I have said before in other threads, you should try GIMP... I think that it is the closest thing to "photoshop" that money can't buy.

I will see you around in the depths of some other thread perhaps :P
