    Default Hey everyone

    Been lurking a bit and figured I should make an account so I can post maps I work on now that I have a new tablet to replace my old broken one. I'm pretty new to mapmaking stuff, though I've used GIMP before for other artistic ventures. Most of my maps will probably either be practicing methods or related to my worldbuilding stuff. Looking forward to learning more.

    Relevant personal background: archeology, use a Wacom Bamboo Capture and GIMP

    Welcome !! There are a lot of us (myself included) that use GIMP for map making. The tutorial section has several great articles on using GIMP for cartography. Dive right in read a tut or two and post something in the relevant WIP section of the forum. Were a friendly and helpful bunch. I look forward to seeing your work

    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 Stinger, you can do quite a bit of good map-making with just those two things. Look forward to seeing your work.

    Cheers,
