    Default Hello!

    Hi all,

    While I'm new to this site I've been fascinated by fantasy mapping for as long as I can remember!

    I try to use different media to create maps but my favourites have to be pen & paper and PS and a Wacom tablet.

    Little something about me: when I was 19 I started drawing a map on a sheet of A4 paper, I loved it but wanted to know what was beyond the island I'd drawn so I got another couple of pieces and another, and another, until I had a fully coloured pencil, pen and crayon (I didn't have PS at this time and am horrible at painting!) map of a whole world (a very square world ) which was taller than me and hung from my wall while I worked on it! Unfortunately, when we moved house it got trashed and had to go in the bin

    I also have pretty big confidence issues so be patient with me if I put my work down a lot!

    Thanks for having me folks!

    Welcome to the Guild. I know the thrill of hand drawing a map one sheet of paper at at time. Too bad you had to throw all that work away

    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.

    Welcome to the Guild! Pen on paper is always appreciated around here. I've done a couple of maps that way...though I've been taking the "easy" way out lately with Photoshop. Looking forward to seeing your stuff.
