Deviants

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.


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

World:
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.

Regional:
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.

Tactical:
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.

Miscellaneous:
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.

Made this a couple weeks ago with an online resource.

Due to limitations on the site and of my own skill, I wasn't able to make what I wanted. I wanted this to look a lot larger and less patchy, with more villages and such. Would love to get it remade at a larger scale with more communities and a more natural looking biome geography.

MSG me if you can be of assistance. :)

Your map trhat I saw is somewhat... smaller scale. I can't afford a great amount, especially not now (I'll hopefully be getting spare cash soon).

I'll assume you're familiar with the map of Greyhawk? It would be akin to that.

Depends what style you're looking for, and what kind of map. I can recommend a few people depending on your answer

As I said to Hero, I don't want a professional, not really. The map? It's akin to a world map that might be used in D&D (of course, aren't they all nowadays?)

Anything else?

Hmmm I'm assuming by D&D you mean a map of a city, room, small regional map, or something of that sort (enclosed region) I can recommend :icontoixstory: :iconfenn-o-manic: :iconsirinkman: :iconupvoteanthology: I think SirInkman is most closely related with the style you're looking for however feel free to contact the others on this list and see what they can do for you :)

I do commissions,  but I'm currently working hard on several projects. But if you send me a note and I think I could fit you into my schedule, let's talk. :)

I was actually looking for... I suppose someone of a lower caliber. I've looked at your work before; you've definitely earned the rank "professional". My concept isn't even fully developed so... the idea of taking up your time is a little bit of a sacrilege.

LOL okay. I like working on any type of map project, so if you change your mind give me a ring. Good luck! 😀
