Welcome to the guild Dezee! Definitely interested in seeing more of your work, so start posting up some maps. Most people here at least use some sort of software to manipulate their had drawn maps, so if you have anything you use regularly, it would be nice to know. Also, be sure to check out the tutorial section. There are many tutorials that go over specific types of maps using certain software packages to get you started.
Is there any specific place in cartography you would like to start such as world/regional maps, city/town maps, star ship deck plans, modern buildings etc? Knowing this and the software you have available will help us point you in the right direction.
