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.

How many of you use a mapmaker called Tiled?

Hello. I am looking for someone to illustrate a city map for me. I already have a map, but it is rather plain, and I was wondering if some talented cartographer could do it better. I dont have alot of money to spend, but I will definitely compensate the best I can with points and/or Membership. Please send me a note if you can help. ♥

For everyone who's been waiting on submissions lately, sorry. I let my web and email servers lapse a while ago, and a change on DA left me unable to confirm my account despite being a member for eight years.

I now have a new email server and will shortly have a website up and running again, as well. In the meantime, I'm back on DA in my full capacity and may eventually even get around to uploading some art.

I submitted a map on June 15th that still hasn't been accepted or rejected.
Are you all off for summer break and just forgot to mention it?

edit - Thanks for handling that. Much appreciated.

Hi, I recently saw a lot of expired submissions, apologies for that. I think people just happened to be away. If your submission expires you're always welcome to try again.

Is there a good free fantasy map making tool for Mac or Android?

Hi, I posted something similar to this on the projects forum, but I thought it might be a good idea to post it here as well. To make a long story short, Ive always loved drawing fantasy maps. When I was younger I created this hugely detailed world based of off 19th century neocolonialism. As I got older I kind of drifted away from this and forgot about. Then a few weeks ago as I was cleaning out my room, getting ready to move, I cam across all these old maps. I realized just how good some of them were and how good the back stories and history's I made up for all these places were. I think it would be awesome to create a fantasy atlas/ journal of sorts, from the perspective of an adventurer traveling thru this world. Id like the help of someone with better artistic skills, to help with the project, I really think there could be an audience for this kind of book. If I find a good artist that I work well with, Id like to create a Kickstarter and try and get it published. Thanks for your time.

I'm looking to hire a professional cartographer for a fantasy world product. Is anyone in this group accepting commissions at the moment?
