Hello Cartographer's Guild!

I'm a grafic designer from Germany working as a freelancer since a few years.
A few weeks ago I restartet writing medieval scripts with caligraphy pens.

I'm a big fan of role playing games and therefore I like to draw fantasy maps.

I like to draw them on real paper because I think it is more fitting for fantasy.
But I use a Wacom medium tablet in Freehand mx and Photoshop CS2 as well for retouching and editing my maps or to draw modern or SF-graphics.

I heard of this forum one year ago and lost it a few months, but now I want to get more active.
I hope I find some time to participate in one of the map challenges soon.
And last but not least I hope to learn some cool things from the master cartographers of this site.
All those magnificent works are very inspiring. I love it.

Welcome to the Cartographers Guild. :)
I'm also a graphic designer, it's awesome to see another one! Do you have any of your hand-drawn maps up? I'd love to see them.

Hello amberroberts09,
wellcome, too. I see, you joined only a few months ago.

Hello Renacido,
nice to meet another designer.

I put up a new map of the City of Erbsburg (http://www.cartographersguild.com/town-city-mapping/21667-city-erbsburg.html).

Thanks, arsheesh. That's very kind.

I love this forum because it is such a great input. And I will continue to share my work.


And I've got a question: How can I rep someone. I just can't find out how it is done. Can anybody please help me?

I replied to it on another thread : on forums, left panel, you have a line with 3 icons "blog this post", a star and a exclamtion point. To rep someone, click on his star and voilą. :)
