I'm Tim and I form one half of Steeluloid Bespoke Cartography (the other half, David, joined some days ago - I'm here on his recommendation).
I should say that in terms of actual cartography I'm very much a beginner. My role within SBC tends more toward the technical side. For example, I'm currenly working on an Android app to allow satellite navigation over custom-drawn maps. I'm not a stranger to artwork though, and I hope to learn a lot from this site.
So, 'Hello Everyone' :D
Welcome to the Guild Tim! Well this is the best place to begin. There are tons of great tutorials here to help you get started. Feel free to post up a WIP of your tester maps and ask for critique; it's a great way to glean new techniques.
