Map Commissions


Nearly finished "world" map with eight
countries, land feature labelling and additional
city markings. Missing: compass, legend,
name and other finishing touches
.
Commissions for custom maps are currently OPEN.

All maps are drawn on smooth, 108lb bleedproof paper. Maps are all drawn and inked by hand, with hand-drawn land and terrain features. Country lines, labels, compass, scale, map name and legend are added digitally, mostly because my handwriting is terrible! The maps are black and white.

For your price, you will be given a digital copy of the completed map, at 300dpi resolution, which you can use for whatever you wish, royalty-free (though a link back to wildhusky.ca is always appreciated!) File types available are: PNG, TIFF, PSD. If you wish to have the original drawing as well, I can mail it to you, with the understanding that it will not include all of the finished features.

CONSULTATION
All map commissions will include a short consultation before the map is started; after the original pencil lines (before being inked); and after any digital elements have been added, but before the final version has been sent out. Deposit will be due after the first consultation.

DISCLAIMER:
I am not a professional cartographer. I am always learning about geography and how things work, so there will always be improvements I am making to the accuracy of my maps. I am just an artist who loves drawing maps.
Also, I will not recreate existing maps, especially copyrighted ones. No Middle Earth or Westeros requests, please.
