Hi everyone. I'm 20 years old, and live in the U.S. My interest in maps is primarily fueled by the desire to make a decent setting for my conlangs (constructed languages, for those who might not know) to be spoken in, but I've also always just liked maps. As of now I have the outline of the landmasses for my world map, but my attempts to fill those in with details have all led to failure and frustration, so any help WILL be appreciated . As for programs, I have GIMP and I'm familiar with the basic features, but I'm beginning to think that I'll probably need to learn quite a bit more to do what I want. Thanks for all future help and guidance!
