Like many people on this site I enjoy creating, viewing, and collecting maps. I was caught experimenting with GIMP before an evening DnD session and have found myself the campaign map creator for my group of friends. In an effort to create some higher quality maps I stumbled upon the cartographers guild. I'm finding the maps and tutorials with the accompanying friendliness of the community both humbling and encouraging as I continue to make an effort to learn more.
Welcome to the Guild hyside11! I'm glad to here that the community is a source of inspiration and encouragement for you, I know it has been for myself and many others as well. Please feel free to post your work-in-progress maps, it's a great way to receive helpful feedback.
