Hi all, kniiight here. I'm a younger guy quite new to cartography. I've only just started working on a map for a fantasy that I'm writing, but I can tell this is something I'm going to run with for a while. I've never really tried to draw a map before, but I have had a fair amount of experience drawing mazes (what do you call somebody who draws mazes? a labrynthographer?), so I hope that might translate to my map drawing a bit.

Unfortunately, I'm by nobody's standards an artist and I'm currently just using a cheap tablet, GIMP, and MyPaint. That said, I could use all the advice I can get regarding map creation, because I've got some big ideas. I've been looking around the net for tuts on map drawing and it seems that Cartographer's Guild is pretty resource-rich, with a friendly (and incredibly talented) community. I look forward to meeting you all.

P.S. Oh, and keep an eye out for the obligatory WIP I'll be posting within the next few days.
