    Help Dolmen Creative seeking cartography artist

    Hello ladies and gentlemen!

    We here at Dolmen Creative are looking for a fantastic cartoartist (cartographer/artist). Not just any cartoartist, but the best of the best of the best. The "chosen one" must possess all of the following qualifications:
    • HUGE sense of humor
    • ability to follow direction
    • must be a communicator
    • talent, talent, talent (seasoned vet, absolute n00b, or anything in between is ok)


    The Job: help us create our dark fantasy world map
    Time Constraints: the final final must be complete before October 1, 2010
    Style: we like the hand-drawn style maps of Forgotten Realms and the old Warhammer Fantasy RPG (see attachments)
    The Map: this map will be a world map of 2 arctic poles, 5 oceans, 4 continents, a large number of archipelagos, and a special "twist" that only the artist we hire will know about
    Quality/Size: full color that also works well for greyscale, will be used in website, PDF, and print medias - 10 x 16 in - 300dpi RGB png
    Copyright: we will have the right to use the image for commercial purposes, but you will have the right to exhibit the map as part of your portfolio (not for profit or resale)
    Payment: by PayPal within 30 days of verified completion

    How Much? That's all depending on the artist. We are happy to discuss rates with our artists. Please email us at info@dolmen-studios.com with the subject: World Map Cartoartist (this will help it get past the spam filter) with the following information:
    • your name
    • rate information
    • links to at least 2 samples of the style we are looking for


    Thank you for reading. We hope to hear from you soon!



    Edit: Added style samples (thanks jfrazierjr for the nudge).
    Edit: changed the project's size from 26x39 to 10x16.

    Dolmen, are there any maps here(or anywhere on the internet) that catch your eye style wise? This can be important as not all the people here are gamers and may not be familiar with the specific map styles you requested.

    I would like to thank everyone that replied to this call. I now have a large number of cartographers to choose from and I will be emailing each of you shortly with my decision. Please be sure to come back here (and to the Dolmen creative website) often. We will be making more open calls for cartographers and other artists soon.
