View Full Version : [Paid] MapMaker Needed

09-10-2013, 10:55 PM
Hi all, I am working on book IV of my science fiction series "History of a Galaxy" and would like to put a map of the planet it takes place on near the front of the book.

I am on a budget so I can provide a maximum of $50 for this map or $35 plus a free book with the map in it upon completion. (though less is happily preferred)

Sometime before January 2014.
Mapmaker will provide minimum of one rough draft, one proof copy, and one revision plus any additional revisions if the revision is not done correctly. Then provide final copy.

This will be a black and white map of terrain (ocean, lakes, rivers, mountains, deserts, pine forests, regular forests, a wall, gate, bridge, and lines of latitude/longitude.)
You do not have to draw any labels; I can type them in on top of your terrain. This should make the map take much less time for you.
The style should match the style of the 3 previous maps on this web page:
History of a Galaxy Maps (http://www.historyofagalaxy.com/HG/Maps.aspx)

I have a draft map drawn up. The uploader on this thing isn't working so I will email it. It's the same complexity as the other 3 maps. I will provide clarifications/explanations to the taker. Artist discretion/modifications in the details are highly encouraged as long as the general geography/city placement is consistent.

Quality / Size:
300dpi, 7 inches wide, 5.5 inches high
B/W for print in a book
png or photoshop format

I will have the right to use the image for commercial purposes, the artist will have the right to exhibit the image as part of his or her portfolio but not to exploit it for commercial gain.
Credit to the artist, link to url, etc can be placed somewhere appropriate in the book.

Let me know if you're interested and your fee, especially if you can provide a sample of a b/w map you made in a similar style.
