Welcome to the Guild, Jack. Manual Mapping is fine... digital tools get good results, at what might be a tremendous time savings, so by all means give some tutorials a try, and see what you can do. I like your example, though. One doesn't have to produce the equivalent of a professional cartographer's best output, to have fun and detail a setting for your players. I bet player character X hasn't got time to produce a Ravells or Ascension or a2area map - in between training with a crossbow and researching the latest magik, he'd probably draw up just what you have here.
