I've dabbled a bit with hand drawn style already for dungeon maps, as posted a few times here on the blog. But there are a lot of great maps out there done with art programs or specialized mapping programs. After looking around a bit I decided to try Campaign Cartographer by ProFantasy Software, now up to version 3+. This is a very complex program but luckily there are some great tutorials on YouTube to get started. On a recent Sunday afternoon I went through some of the tutorial videos on the Crawford Cartography channel. I'm very much a visual learner so watching someone use the program while they discuss what they're doing is extremely helpful for me. I basically just followed along and came up with this map, done with the Mike Schley style library of objects. The sizing and placement of things is a bit clunky but I'm pleased with it as a first effort.
