Hello all~

I'm super new to the world of digital mapping! (Ie, one attempt, and it was pretty dismal.) However, I do have quite a few maps I've drawn by hand, that go along with a conworld I've been developing for a couple of years now. In order to make my work more accessible, I want to get it onto the interwebs and learn how to create maps like the gorgeous ones I've seen on this site! (Up until now all my hard work has been contained in a ratty old brown folder covered in ducktape, to be enjoyed by only myself.) Anyway it may be a while before I post any work, but I hope to learn from all of you! :^)

If you have a lot of thought about a region you get good maps.

Try scanning some of your hand drawn stuff as a starting point.

There are some great tutorials here too.

Scan your maps and draw over them using the tutorials - that should do it!
