Hello, map makers!
My name is Bastien, and I'm a French student.
I sometimes make maps, but I prefer making digital paintings and writing stories (dearest ZenWriter...).
I've choose to join you cause I need training on map making, I actually use GIMP and AutoRealm.
And sorry for my bad english, I don't use any translator.
Your English is better than any translator program I know...
This is a great place to learn and get inspired. I joined a few days ago myself and am still blown away! I recommend doing a few tutorials.
Cheers and have fun,
