Map of an island sought!
First: I am from Germany, but there is not such a good forum in my language. I hope you will forgive me my bad English.
I'm working on a fantasy island and need a professional map. It is a recreational project, so I can not pay anyone for help. I hope there is still someone who can help me.
Sorry, but I've copied the structure from others here in the forum.
I've already made a rough sketch of my map.
It is only a sketch. If the artist has other ideas, I will wait.
Overview of my desires:
1. The Capital of the Island.
2. Small Island with a Harbor.
3. Farms and Farmer's Fields.
4. A small River Delta.
5. A large, dark Forest.
6. A small town on several islands.
7. A small Fort.
8. Large plain with many hills.
9. A little area for Open-pit mining. (Sand, Clay and Loam)
10. A little Fishing village.
11. A little Forest with small Village.
12. A Mountain range with Mining.
13. A Hillside Castle.
The cities do not have to be house to house on it.
Between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
Number of Maps:
A total of the island. Later, maybe even maps of the cities.
I like these Maps:
But I am also satisfied with other Styles.
I'm going with this map for personal use at home, alone, will not be published if the author does not want.
I hope one of you can help me.
If the co-precipitated, further work will be taught from Germany, perhaps even some who are paid!
I'm an "unknown quantity" but I would like to do this for you. It's an opportunity for me to start building a portfolio since I've lost all my old maps I did a few years ago.
I use inkscape as my primary tool. I started playing around with your sample just to see if I could do it, and I think I could make something pretty cool, and similar to your examples of the styles you like.
Send me a pm when you see this, and I'll show you what I've got so far? I can understand not wanting to go with an unknown, but maybe we can help each other out?
I'm doing this project, WIP thread may be found here: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...145#post184145
OP, can I mark this taken?
Beat you to it.
