Hi, I would just like to introduce myself here at this fine forum...and ask a question. Do any of you actually make your maps without photoshop, GIMP, or some other complex photo editing software (like with pencil/paper and their virtual equivalents)?
There are plenty here who start with pencil/paper. Many choose to then scan and import into a graphics editing software to give their map life.
Though one day I would love to see Ascension crank out a map in stained glass...now that would be something!

Welcome to The Guild. I think most of us started out drawing maps by hand "back in the day". Computers and the accessories make it easier to do some types of things that cannot be done by hand...like putting down nice looking text for those of us who have chicken scratch for handwriting
