Hi Dndungeoneer, please take a look at the sticky on the top of this forum here.
I am looking for a skilled cartographer to create a map of the continent of Gurn which is part of the campaign setting that I am creating. Any help would be great and appreciated. I'd like whoever would generously do this for me to read my descriptions that I set down of Gurn and create the map from their own imaginative viewpoint. You can find the little of my campaign setting that I have set down here:
Rough Paint of Gurn (As well as I can make it that is.)
Description of Map
- I'd like the map to be look like the Faerun map that I linked below in terms of Style and that pretty much describes how I imagine the map looking. However I wouldn't need it nearly as big as this is simply a small continental map.
* No real time limits. I'd like to not wait a long amount of time. (More than two weeks.) But I'm asking for free skilled labor so I am flexible.
Quality & Size
* I'd appreciate a quality map.
* I don't really know what to ask size-wise. It simply needs to be big enough that all features, geographical and otherwise can be seen clearly. (Example: http://www.mythopoeicpress.com/fr_faerun_overview.jpg)
Obviously more information can be given when required.

That's a lot of work for no pay but maybe someone wants the practice so good luck.

My Maps ~ My Brushes ~ My Tutorials ~ My Challenge Maps
Just added a map that I made to illustrate briefly sort of what Gurn looks like.
I thought I would try a new style and some new brush tricks, but it didn't turn out nearly as well as I'd hoped--too embarassing to post. It is, however, the first time I've ever thought to myself "wow, this would have been way easier and turned out better if I'd had a tablet."
Might try again and post my work tomorrow!

What's the scale?
Well, from the fork of the Winspur, I'd like it to take about 5 days of traveling to get there by foot. I'm really horrible with scale, I'm sorry.
Okay this one is slightly less embarrassing. I haven't quite finished yet, but this is what I've got so far.
I think you pretty much nailed it. The only difference I see is the perspective on the mountains. In the original it is top down instead of (ISO? not sure if that is the correct term.).
Wow, Reckless, that's really good! You said you aren't done, but it already looks great! I appreciate your efforts very much! The perspective of the mountains, I like better in Reckless' rendering. Only feature I can really see missing is the East Hills before one reaches the Meldic Coast. The one thing I forgot to add to my example map was the river that flows through the Forest of the Emerald-Wash, called the Emerald-Wash.
