Velcome to zeh Guilde!
cool map, and nice avatar btw
Hello all, stumbled upon this site after looking for some map generating stuff through google. I found a forum thread where someone was asking for good software and another replied with "Download GIMP, and join the cartographersguild.com." So that's what I did! Excited to get into mapping. I used to draw tons of maps way back in the day when I was obsessed with D&D. I wasn't incredibly artistic, but had fun.
I joined a few days ago and have already been hard at work following tutorials. I created a work along map to the Fantasy Cartography with Adobe Photoshop series on youtube that I'm happy with. But I would like to thank this community for all the help figuring out GIMP equivalents. These forums are quite an asset for a beginner!
I think the next map I try I will make a WIP thread so I can ask questions and receive advice during the whole process, since I am quite a noob with GIMP.
A serviceable map, that. And in an intro post. Definitely deserves some rep. *
* - Rep (reputation) is tracked as those green boxes under a poster's title. It is bestowed by clicking the little sheriff's badge-looking star at the bottom left section of a post. (Next to "Blog this Post".) Members with more rep themselves bestow more rep when they give it. I can only offer a little tap, myself. Some of the big guys have powerful repping sticks.

Welcome from another new mapper! It's really great to see your first map - tap my hat - as I respect your big jump into mapping. Have loads of fun and enjoy
My deviantART gallery will be updated with a separate cartography folder.
Again, welcome. That's not a bad looking map at all. Have some more rep!
