    Map Map of an island sought!

    Hi Community,

    First: I am from Germany, but there is not such a good forum in my language. I hope you will forgive me my bad English.
    I'm working on a fantasy island and need a professional map. It is a recreational project, so I can not pay anyone for help. I hope there is still someone who can help me.

    Sorry, but I've copied the structure from others here in the forum.


    I've already made ​​a rough sketch of my map.

    It is only a sketch. If the artist has other ideas, I will wait.

    Overview of my desires:

    1. The Capital of the Island.
    2. Small Island with a Harbor.
    3. Farms and Farmer's Fields.
    4. A small River Delta.
    5. A large, dark Forest.
    6. A small town on several islands.
    7. A small Fort.
    8. Large plain with many hills.
    9. A little area for Open-pit mining. (Sand, Clay and Loam)
    10. A little Fishing village.
    11. A little Forest with small Village.
    12. A Mountain range with Mining.
    13. A Hillside Castle.
    14. Sawmill

    The cities do not have to be house to house on it.


    Between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

    Number of Maps:

    A total of the island. Later, maybe even maps of the cities.


    I like these Maps:

    But I am also satisfied with other Styles.




    I'm going with this map for personal use at home, alone, will not be published if the author does not want.

    I hope one of you can help me.
    If the co-precipitated, further work will be taught from Germany, perhaps even some who are paid!

    I'm an "unknown quantity" but I would like to do this for you. It's an opportunity for me to start building a portfolio since I've lost all my old maps I did a few years ago.

    I use inkscape as my primary tool. I started playing around with your sample just to see if I could do it, and I think I could make something pretty cool, and similar to your examples of the styles you like.

    Send me a pm when you see this, and I'll show you what I've got so far? I can understand not wanting to go with an unknown, but maybe we can help each other out?
