Look through the Tutorials section for a mega tut by Delgondahntelius on hand-drawing things. Also look through the Reference Material section and Mapping Elements section. And be sure to check out the other tutorials for ideas. The computerized maps you see are here because they are easy to do and require no artistic talent (or very little). Since that is hard to teach and learn many try to emulate the look...with varying degrees of success. We all love hand-drawn maps but not all have the talent or skill to make them. Plus, some of us don't have good paper and pens Welcome and have fun.
