    Default Hello!

    I found this site while looking for ideas for a new city map. So many wonderful maps here. Sadly I don't think my Word and Paint created maps hold up to some of the designs here, but here are a few links via deviant art.

    Can anyone point out some good city maps. I always struggle with deciding how to - shape a city.

    Howdy. We have a whole subsection for city maps (Mapmaking Discussion and Philosophy - Town/City). There are also plenty of tutorials for making your own in various styles. I like that first there, cute. Welcome to The Guild.

    Welcome to the guild! I really like the maps you linked there, I'm a sucker for hand-drawn stuff

    Welcome Those maps look great.

    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.
