    Default Hi All

    Hey, I am really really new to map making. As in, no experience at all. But I hope to learn a lot here.

    My main purpose is to create a world map for a radio serial that I am currently producing called The World of Lux. I am great with audio but would love some more visual things to go with it. The artwork in the thumbnail was done by a friend for free and my art skills are less than adequate...


    First glances at this website show some great tutorials that walk you through so much and I especially like the more technical and mathematical approaches. So, by the end of the month I hope to have something that I am comfortable with and would be proud to attach to the brand. So, check back later where you'll hopefully see some great improvement.

    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.

    Hello and welcome!

    It's great to see you're so motivated for improvement. We do have some great tutorials here that can help you get started. But always remember to have fun mapping, and it's hardly going to be enjoyable if you ever feel you have to force yourself to do it. Plus, I find the best maps are made by those who love mapping the most.

    If you're like me, you probably don't want to make any deadlines for yourself either

    Good luck

    The best maps are the ones we like the most after looking at the longest.
