Hello Cartographers.

I found this amazing site while crawling through Google in search for some mapping ideas. All I have seen here was brilliant and utterly inspiring, so I have to say "thank you, all!" right from the beginning. I am playing Earthdawn, D&D3.5 and Opus Anima, so I am in need of maps from time to time. Most times I draw them myself with pencil and paper, but I also have photoshop available - your tutorials will surely help me to improve my skill as I never used it for mapping before.

In addition I am working on my own homebrew d20 fantasy setting and of course I need good maps. All I have done in photoshop so far was to copy the continent from paper, but after that I lost inspiration and didn't have success in filling that map with life:

Hopefully I will finish it with the help of all the great stuff you offer.

That actually looks like a good start, and I like the layout of the land. Esp. the islands in the south west.

There are plenty of tuts that will have you turning this start into something awesome.
