I've been admiring your work for quite a while and I was hoping you could help me out with a request for a fantasy illustration of a small village lost in a thick forest. The purpose of this map is to give a better idea to my players where most of our adventures start from in a our AD&D game.
It would be great if I could have it within 12 days and I'm willing to pay up to $30-40 through Paypal.
In order to make it easier for you, I did some research to provide you with as much material as possible. I hope this helps!
Let me know what you think and if you need more information! Thanks for your time.

Description of the gig:
1°/Here's the kind of view/angle I would like for the illustrated map
2°/The style of buildings I would like
3°/ Example of colours and design
Here's a rough description of the village to give you a better idea of what's needed in terms of work.
The village, which was recent building around an old Tower that was lost in the forest, has now the following buildings:
- The old Tower which has now a main building attached to it for its guards
- A town hall building next to a small market place
- On the main square there’s a fountain with 3 heroes carved in stone
- Next to the square there’s an Inn on two levels, made in stone
- 3 shops in the center
- A blacksmith next to a big stable
- A small potage and vineyard next the old tower
- 10 farmer houses spread out through the village along with their fields
- A posh and bigger house for the Lord of the Village
- A camp for the workers building the Village
- The streets in the center of the village are in stone
- A Temple
- One small river running through the Village
In terms of defense it has:
- The main and only entrance is defended by a stone gate made by dwarves
- 2 Watchtowers in wood.
- A wood fence with a ditch surrounding the main village (excluding the farmer's houses and their fields).
The surroundings of the village are mostly trees since it’s a thick and aggressive vegetation and the mountains constitute a natural protection on the far end of the village.
And here's a very shameful drawing to give you a crude idea of the layout wished:
