Need Great Map(s) For Well Developed Fantasy Setting
Greetings cartographers. :)
I'm a professional writer currently working on a fantasy fiction project. I have a very deep, rich campaign setting and I need some solid map work to help bring it to life.
WHAT I NEED
I already have some sketches that capture the basic format, but I need a real artist to bring my vision to life!
I'm looking for black and white map work, initially focused on a specific region, but could ultimately use three or more maps. Here's a probable list of necessary maps:
- Regionally targeted map covering the core focus area of the story line
- Larger map displaying expanded portion of continent
- One or more detailed maps targeting specific, smaller areas
The first map will of course include kingdom names, labels for major oceans/seas, plus depictions of mountain ranges and possible a couple of major rivers. I may or may not want individual cities, forts, etc indicated on this map - perhaps such details will be saved for additional or supplementary maps.
COPYRIGHT AND CREDITS
As this map will be part of a professional writing project, I expect to own all rights of the final image. Obviously I'm happy to provide credit for the artist in any finalized printed material. ;)
We can sort out a price that's fair. I'd like to see some samples of your work, and once you have all the details of the gig, you can give me your price.
NOTE: I'm also willing to exchange services. The quality of my writing work ranges from very good to excellent, so if you need some powerful content, perhaps we can work out a trade.
I believe business is about relationships. I'd really like to make a connection with an artist who loves to explore new fantasy worlds, i.e. someone who can grasp and appreciate the world I'm building.
Ideally, I'll find a mapmaker who can handle all of my future projects.

I'll want to see a few pieces of your previous or current work, and it's helpful if you can give me at least a few hints about the sort of campaign worlds you enjoy.
I'M MORE INTERESTED IN "FINDING THE FLOW" AND MEETING A LIKE-MINDED FANTASY LOVER THAN I AM IN SAVING A BUCK!
If I feel we're on the same page (sorry for the bad pun), and your work is of solid quality, I'm happy to compensate you nicely.
