I hope you are all having a great day!!
I am VERY new to any kind of art software. I have only ever used Paint, which is so very limited, as I am sure you all know.
I want to create a solar system image, a planet image, a world map, and then more in depth regional maps. I would first like to create a regional map complete with terrain features, at least some elevation relief, and some climate features.
Is there any truly free and user-friendly software out there? Tutorials would also be quite welcome as well.
I should also mention: I have no programming experience so nothing too techy or I'll be sitting at my computer staring blankly with a little drop of drool hanging from my lip.

Greetings and Gratitude ,
