    Post Starving cartographer needs work

    I've been trying to branch out into RPG cartography. I've so far done the maps for an upcoming 3rd party 4e module but I need to do more. It's addictive. Fun stuff. Anyway, if anyone here knows of someone that'd like some nicey nice mapwork, drop me a line.

    Here are some samples.

    These look pretty darn good to me, I especially like that font for Sea of Battles, not sure which you used but I use AL Afternoon Delight, one of my favorites. Keep up the good stuff and as far as making the ends meet, there is a subforum here for commissions so check that often.

    Glad to see you found your way over here. They are pretty maps (though a couple have broken with the flickr link - perhaps upload directly to here?)

    Any chance of a walkthrough of techniques on the first or the fourth ones?

    Fixed the links.

    On a walkthrough, I'm afraid I'm going to have to be stingy... but I'll say that I uncovered a lot by studying the KEEP ON THE SHADOWFELL maps and basing my techniques off of those. Also, cgtextures.com is a friggin' godsend.

    That is a shame regarding the walk through. If you look around on this site you'll see that many full time professionals have offered tips, advice and how tos.

    Could you point me to a couple of those? I'd be happy to contribute in a share and share alike sense if I could see other working stiffs giving up their secrets... that'd be nice.

    They all go in the Tutorials forum over here:
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/tutorials-how/

    Note that good tutorials get identified through thread ratings and those that get highly rated are given awards by the mods to sort out the good ones. Most of the long time posters here have put together a couple of tutes. The biggest one being RobA's regional map tutorial. Definitely worth a browse through that forum to pick up some useful tips in different areas.
