I'm new here in the forums. I am primarily a writer, but I dabble a little in digital art, too, and map-making is another (often-neglected) hobby and off-shoot of the combination. I'm also a member of an online RPG group, and I've done quite a bit of artwork for that site, as well as a couple of maps. I was, in fact, looking for some inspiration for creating a city map when I stumbled across the Cartographer's Guild -- and wow! I'm inspired! (Now if I could only find time! LoL)
There is so much great artwork here, so many good tutorials (or links to), and I'm so impressed by the critiques and suggestions that are given to everyone from the most beginning beginner to the experts.
Congratulations on running such a fantastic site!
