Gallery Folders




Hello everyone. Recently, I've noticed an increasing amount of submissions to what I would consider the wrong gallery folder. So far, I've just moved the maps to the right folders, but it would of course be great if everyone puts their maps in the right gallery themselves. Even though we've changed the name 'Alternate World' to 'Alternate Earth', there still seems to be some confusion about what kind of maps should be in which folders. I hope therefore that this overview clears up any confusion there might be about where to submit the maps to. If anyone has different ideas about what fits where, please comment and we can decide what definition fits best, as this is my personal interpretation.

This is the folder for all resources which can be used to make maps. Think about tutorials, brushes, textures, map items, etc.

This folder is meant for maps depicting an entire fictional world. The definition of 'world' can change of course, but generally this folder is meant for maps which show all of some world and not just parts. This folder is not meant for maps of our own Earth, they can be submitted to Real World.

This folder is meant for maps depiction region of a fictional world, most maps fall into this category. Again, maps depicting a region of our own Earth can be submitted to Real World.

This folder is meant for all maps which have a tactical/game purpose. The main example are dungon maps, but also floor plans of castles and towns with a grid can be found in this folder.

Real World:
This folder is meant for all maps depicting a truthfull version of our own Earth, be it historical or of the present. They can either be of the entire world or just of regions. Remember that this group is meant for original maps, so a scan of an atlass will still not be accepted ;).

Science Fiction:
This folder is meant for maps depicting a future world or region, this will include most space maps (except those which are a realistic version of the world as we now know it ;) )

Town & City Maps:
This folder is for all maps depicting fictional human settlements, so from villages to large cities.

Alternate Earth:
This folder is meant for maps of alternative versions of our own earth. In practice, these will mostly be alternate history maps, so if you have an alternate history map, this is the folder to submit to. Maps of any purely fictional region/world which are not meant to depict a place which was originally historically real can be submitted to Regional or World, not to this folder.

This folder is for any map which doesn't fit any of the descriptions above. If you believe this to be the case, you can submit to this folder. Examples are a map of a Wyvern lair, a map of a ship and a map of a tide pool.

Hi, I checked for you, and people did actually look at it. A piece needs 4 votes to get either accepted or rejected. Your map got stuck at 3 votes, but you're welcome to try again if it expires.

Greetings honored people of deviantart!
At this time I am creating a masterpice, a story of immense proportions.
To speak more clearly, I am working on a world. A pathfinder world (possible a D&D 5e) where I will put lose 4 heroes to do what ever they feel the need for. To stop the threat, or perhaps join it? I am hoping to turn it all in to a book (mostly for my own amusement), but I will just have to wait and see what happends first.

But this is where I need your help. A great world needs a map. And the bigger town needs maps, and I are not skillfull in the art of drawing. The world is going to big and I expecting to need at least ten diffrent maps and I wish to have the same art style on them all. I am looking for a mapstyle close to this one: The world it self gona be flat, think diskworld but with out elephants and turtle.

I am willing  to pay for the service of course and so.. I ask you all, are there anyone that feel that they are up for the challange?
I expect a crude scetch before anything is finished so that we could discus changes and you will need to have something to show that you can do this. An earlier world and city map is okey.
