    Welcome To The Guild !!

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Yay, another NorCal! Excellent work on that regional map; I don't think there's another type of map that looks quite as nice as a well-executed hand-drawn one.

    Cheers Diamond! I very much appreciate that Although I have a slight confession to make... the map is only half hand-drawn! The mountains were drawn by hand, but the terrain itself was drawn and colored in Photoshop. I think the sheer quantity of the hand-drawn mountains plus the final antique paper wash I added gave it that look... but that was the look I was after

    Thanks again!

    PS NorCal pride! I'm down in the Santa Cruz area, and I love it!

    I'm actually a transplanted SoCal guy (Riverside), but I've discovered NorCal is much more awesome. Shhhh, don't tell anyone.
