Welcome to the mappiest place n8ey! Feel free to share your works. Tutorial section may be useful to learn some tips and WIP section is a good place to get critics and advices.
I came across this board a few weeks ago because every consultation with the Great Google regarding "fantasy", "maps", "tutorials", "cartography", "RPG" showed many results from this forum.
Now that I've had a chance to read through a few threads and start to gain my cartographer-legs, I'm thinking it's time to edge out of my dark little corner.
In the coming weeks or months, I may even dig out some of my old hand-drawn maps, scan them, and try some of your wonderful tutorials.
I'm looking forward to becoming part of this forum.
ooooo!!! Hand drawn maps!!!!! GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE!!!!!!
In case you hadn't figured by now, we just LOVE Hand drawn maps here at the Guild, The Mappiest Place on the Web (as Max has already stated...stop stealing my line Max!! ) Show us what you got. 'Tis true that most of the maps you see here are computer generated, but quite a few of them use hand drawn elements as well, if not actually start out as hand doodles somehow.
Quite frankly we just love maps, no matter what the tools used to create them. In fact 'tis the new and inovative methods and tools that can wake us jaded greybeards out of our slumber
Have fun during your stay.

Argh - disorganized storage of old maps + broken Photoshop install means delays in getting stuff up...
I'ma just thinking I may scan and put things up without Photoshop... It's just frustrating, as I paid the Adobe tax I want to use the Adobe product.
Welcome to the Guild !!
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.
