Your adventure awaits...
This post is Part 1 of a series to augment the Map Commission FAQ available for free download.
This and other map commissions are gathered in my World Map Portfolio for you to explore.
I first met David when my repeat client Stephen Everett introduced us on Facebook. In a writer's group, David shared a rough sketch of his world, and Steve suggested he collaborate with me to take his map to the next level. I gave David my email address and he sought me out.
We discussed his northern isles, then called Sodow, a world still taking form. I used maps to develop the Known World, so I knew the mapping process would provide a fantastic world-building tool for David. I also remembered how daunted I felt about mapping my world before knowing where all the pieces fit.
This took the pressure off David to know all the details of his world at once, and it allowed him to access the phenomenal worldbuilding tool that is map-making.
Using his rough sketch, I started working on the initial render of Sodow's coastline to help him envision the finished map.
Once he felt confident in the project, David paid for his initial render and we proceeded.
That's it for this post! Up Next: Coastlines, nations, and rivers.
