Struggle In Three Horn Valley (PB Publishing) - Chase Map
PB Publishing asked me to design a map to accompany a chase sequence in their adventure 'Struggle In Three Horn Valley'. The map needed to provide a scale for the chase, variations in terrain that might provide obstacles during gameplay, and work as both an illustration and a game aid. I arrived at the size for the map after discussing the expected length of the encounter with the client, and accounting for the specific rules governing movement and chases in the system the map was being designed for (in this case, 5th Edition D&D).
Struggle In Three Horn Valley (PB Publishing) - Isometric Map
Working from a basic sketch provided by the client and a rough draft of the written encounter, I was asked draw a kobolds' den that covered multiple levels. The challenge of this map was in effectively communicating that the bulk of the complex is comprised of caves within a cliff-face, and in visually differentiating those sections from the two 'outside' spaces in front of the cliff.
Critical Cartography is an ongoing, intermittent project which sees me drawing a map for every episode of Critical Role. I aim to be as true to the source material as possible (whether that's drawing from Matt Mercer's hand-drawn maps, Dwarven Forge setups, or his descriptions) while still providing a map that would be usable in a tabletop game.
Personal Project - Trap Map
More of an illustration than a battlemap, this was designed to show the setup of a trap in both triggered and pre-triggered states, providing a clear visual aid to accompany the trap's description.
Top down, black-and-white maps of buildings/small dungeons: $15
Isometric dungeon maps: $25
Regional/overland maps: $60
In all cases, colour is an additional $15. Greyscale versions of coloured maps are an additional $5.
All maps are hand-drawn; colour is applied digitally. You will receive a 300 DPI file of each map in .PNG format, and a printable PDF of each map at full battlemap scale (i.e. 1-inch squares). I am also happy to provide maps to fit A4 or Letter paper sizes at no additional cost.
Currently the largest maps I can produce are 8×12 inches (i.e. a sheet of A4 paper). I am open to discussing larger projects, with the proviso that the extra work required in piecing together multiple scanned pages into a cohesive image will result in a higher rate than those quoted here.
My rates include the right for you to use the map in one digitally published commercial product (e.g. a PDF for sale on DMs Guild or DriveThruRPG). Commissioned maps can not be sold on their own. For rates related to other projects such as physically printed game manuals etc., please contact me directly.
Contact me via email and we can begin discussing your next project!
