Maps drawing is an activity I've practiced for a long time (25 years) with paper & pencils and the limits of my skill.
As the main objective was to produce something usable and efficient, the artistic side was optional and reserved for big maps (worlds) an limited to what I'm able to do.
I've never learned how to draw something.
But I'm always eager to improve my production and I was strongly impressed (if not amazed) by the works of the members of Cartographers Guild.
So, I'll follow your tutorials and advices, and try to walk in the steps of the giants ;))
