    Default Just getting into digitial media

    Hello everyone! I'm a long time map maker but new to digital methods--done most of my past stuff by hand using custom made stencils, brushes, and high quality pens. I am now beginning to see the possibilities with Photoshop and Illustrator. I am very excited to get involved and post work.

    Aye, welcome to the Guild.

    I too had no experience in the digital world when I joined. I'm still learning heaps and at times it's a little irritating trying to get what you know you can do by hand. Just don't give up. You will probably burn hours playing around with the software and at times end up with a pile of mush but it gets better

    Look forward to seeing your efforts come to life.

    Hello and welcome to the guild!

    I didn't have any experience with digital maping before joining either. One of the things that really helped me closing the gap between real life and digital maping was getting a tablet.
