Hi, everyone! I'm 17 years old, and I live in Norway. I've drawn maps for several years now, mostly on paper (I'm not going to comment on the quality of those maps... *cough*). I recently found this forum through the D&D forums, and fell in love with it immediately. I've already taken the opportunity to read some of the tutorials here, and I've got to say, it's utterly amazing what can be done with Photoshop and a tablet. I am really looking forward to my stay here, and I hope to learn more about the fine art of cartography (which I undoubtedly will, what with all the great artists here) and to possibly make some new friends along the way!
I've already made some maps based on the tutorials I've read so far, and I've uploaded them at http://tehsaph.deviantart.com. So I guess I should thank Tear and Pasis for their awesome tutorials ^^

Howdy and welcome.

*waves at fellow newbie* Your success with those maps encourages me - I reckon I'm in the spot you were (hand-drawn maps and all).
And I love your location descriptor. xP
Welcome to the Guild! Glad you're finding the tutorials useful!
