i have been preparing for a large scale D&D campaign with some friends and dug out an old map i drew for it (attached below) i would appreciate it if someone could create a new version of it.
i'd like it to have the appearance of an old parchment with more proportionate details . the small pointy hills on my map are in fact large mountains however in my original drawing my bridges and roads are far to big in comparison. the whole map needs polishing off and details such as hills and rivers need to be scattered over the map more realistically.

i am not to picky about what would be added if you feel the map would look better with additional mountain range somewhere to break up detail so long as what is already there isn't removed.
the map is meant to be quite a large scale showing land controlled by many different countrys.

Time constraints:
no particular time limit i still need time to prepare my D&D campaign and so wont be needing it till we are ready to run a game

this will have to be discussed with the individual artist i would like something similar to the maps found in D&D books
here is an example but from a much smaller scale map: http://tonytoon.home.insightbb.com/KOTS_PMAP.jpg

probably somewhere close to 1920X1080 it doesn't have to be exactly that ( its an estimate) but id like enough details so that when you zoom in using our virtual table it wont blur

i have Skype, Steam and email for communication. if you want any more information please ask.
feel free to email me : JamesBlackwing -at- Live.co.uk

there are additional maps that we may want done in the future the match the same style.
depending on when i need those and how much my players want to explore outside the world map i may request more work from you
depending on the quality of work future maps may be payed.

Hi, I would be interested in taking a stab at this. I have been interested in doing a more artistic map for some time, and since I just finished up my most recent map (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?19379-Guneslidunyasi-%28The-Sunkissed-World%29), I have some time on my hands at the moment. Stylewise, I would like to go for something similar to Gidde's hand-drawn mapping style (http://www.cartographersguild.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=25516&d=1275716092) although I would use different brushes. That said, I would like the style to be relatively simple, particularly because this would speed up production times for future maps, if you needed them in a hurry.

Unfortunately, most of the time, my internet is too slow for voice chat to work well. However, I do have a steam account we could use to discuss specifics.

Not to sound rude, but you can't exactly expect people to be lining up to take on a commission like this without some form of compensation. My suggestion would be to either: (a) change the add to "Paid" and offer some financial incentive, be it ever so modest, or; (b) browse through the multitude of wonderful tutorials on offer here and remake the map yourself.
