Hi guys,

I run a browser based game development company. Our latest game will involve the use of several maps. There will be three different types of maps required, but lots of seperate images. I will explain:

I will need a world map. This will be a fairly large image. Perhaps 1000x1000px. Something along the lines of http://www.cartographersguild.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=21275&d=1264109937

Then, for each "region", we will need a map. Something along the lines of http://www.cartographersguild.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=24665&d=1273612030

Then for each town, or forest, whatever we will need a map along the lines of http://www.cartographersguild.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=11743&d=1238081877

I understand this is a lot of work, and our image budget is several thousand dollars so if you are interested in doing one or more of the different types of maps then please let me know. There will be 1 world map. Approx 10 region maps and approx 50 "location" maps. Plus we will add content to the game, so this is a long term freelance opportunity. Please post links to examples of your work and to anyone who fits the profile, we can discuss prices etc.

Thanks.

EDIT: The maps above merely show the scale of the map required. The style of your work can differ widely to ultra-realistic to almost cartoon like. I will consider anyone who wants to take on the project.

I'd be interested in working on the world, and maybe regional maps. My style is quite different from those linked to, more 'pen and ink' with symbolic representations of features, with some watercolour highlights. I generally make my maps using Inkscape so they are scalable to suit your needs. I'm also familiar with the use of GIS and could provide GIS files for the raw data behind the world map, and regional views of that data in suitable projections for the regional maps to be built from by other mappers.

Here are some examples of my work: http://hai-etlik.deviantart.com/gallery/10457186

Hello there. I would absolutely be interested in working on a project of this scale, probably doing as many as you'd let me. If you want to get an impression of my work, feel free to take a look at my albums (http://www.cartographersguild.com/album.php?u=18647).

Wow, that seems like a huge project. If you don't mind multiple artists on the project, I would be interested to make some as well. You can check some work of me at dA (http://djekspek.deviantart.com/). cheers!

Perhaps me too. I'm up for anything. Did you organize any sort of discussion forum or email chain to get the particulars nailed down?

Hey there Quorthorn,

Please take a look at my professional site at www.theredepic.com, I have done this type of work before for a couple other browser based games so i have abit of experience. I am a professional cartographer who works for a number of larger clients in the field and I'd be happy to discuss the project further if you are interested in my work, just shoot me an email.

Here are a couple links to my work on this site as well to give you a couple more examples of how i work and such.
