Hi all! For long, I've been working on my custom high fantasy role-playing system and setting, and I believe it's about time for the world to get a world map. Although I am fairly keen with Photoshop myself, I do not possess the necessary skill to create a professionally looking world map. That's where you come in.
Before I go on, let me mention the following regarding the price: I'm not rich. I'd like reproduction rights and copyright for the map, depending on how much money we're looking at. I haven't got the slightest idea about the normal price for your work, but I believe I'm fairly flexible.
I can transfer money via PayPal. Other methods of transaction can be discussed. If you're interested in taking this commission, mail me and we'll talk about the price. My address is quixoticelixir1--at--gmail.com.
I'm fairly flexible on this matter. Of course, I'd like the map to be finished as quickly as possible. While there's no deadline, I'd like to have the map done before December 20th, if possible.
I'd like the map to be a mix of your classical fantasy-esque with some high-fantasy-esque elements. A perfect example of what I'd like can be found at the following links:
Description of Map
The image above should hopefully give you an idea how the world looks. The distance between the various continents should be greater, but connected by chains of islands. Also, the distance to the continent on the bottom left should be greater, too (it's a newly discovered continent).
It is important to note that the world is massive. Unlike other fantasy settings, this doesn't have alternate planes of existence. In compensation, this world is vast. I haven't decided exactly how vast this world is, but I want it to be insanely big. I was hoping we could discuss this issue (at least in regard to scale) by e-mail, should you be interested.
Quality and Size
- Required for print and web
- Dimensions of map: Another area where my expertise isn't quite sufficient, so I'll leave this one up to you. Whatever you think is best.
- Raster/Vector: I imagine raster would be best. If you disagree, let me know.
Copyright and Stuff
I would like reproduction rights to the map
I will have the right to use the image for commercial purposes, the artist will have the right to exhibit the image as part of his portfolio but not to exploit it for commercial gain.
Notes and Stuff
Since the world is currently in development, I'd like to be able to add countries etc. to the world map later. I imagine that the easiest way to do this is by sending me the finished map in a .pdf file.
Thanks in advance!
