I'm 44 years old, writing from Romagna, Italy.
I know nothing about cartography but, as a fanatic wargamer, i'm trying to draw sci-fi maps and fictional starcharts. In my searching the web for informations I found this community. My usual software photoshop, rarely Gimp, even in I prefer old-style drawing and painting. Hope to learn and, possibly in the future, to share some decent map.
Welcome to the Guild Claymore! I think there may be one or two tutorials on star charts floating around the tutorials section here, but you may also want to check out Deviantart; I've seen dozens of great PS tutorials there.
Well, many thanks. Hope to learn drawing fantasy maps, too. Reding this forum makes me eager to try...
