Fantasy region map... please?
Description: Cartographer's Guild, I am in dire need of your assistance! I am in the process of writing a fantasy novel, and plan to use the same region map for a slew of novels. Problem is, I stink horribly at making maps. This is why I am here, looking for a cartographer to help me out. I have a base fractal kind of map with city and town names, but that's just to have a location in my head at the moment.
Here's the map. The red is higher elevation, the green lower, etc. I don't have anything but this really at the moment, and my world building is still in early stages, so do what you like with it. I just really like the town locations and names, and the overall shape of the map. Otherwise, have a go however you like. :)
Style: I'm open to most styles, but something that would look nice on the pages of a book would be best. I'm rather fond of Paolini's map in Eragon, but again, style is up for complete negotiation.
Time: I have plenty of time. Please, if you take this up, make it at your leisure. I would hate to rush, and it is unpaid, so... Speaking of that,
Payment: You see, I'm a young, brand new, author-to-be. Unfortunately, I lack the means with which to pay for a map of this sort. But, if it comes to the point of publication, I would be willing to discuss payment at that point in time if you wish.
Copyright: I would need reproduction rights for use in publication, but the copyright can very well remain with the cartographer. I would make sure and cite you.(So, preferably, I would have rights to reproduce the map for commercial use and the cartographer would have rights to exhibit the image but not exploit it for commercial gain.)
Contact Info: Please, do contact me at
Extra Note: I am glad to accept any cartographer on here, especially less known ones. (Possibly have at least one previous work for me to view?)
Thank you very, very much in advance.
