Blue Watercolor Fantasy Map for TTRPG

This map is styled after an earlier map I made, The Expanse.

I think I nailed it, with one noteworthy change: the way I did the water around the island. The commissioner for the Expanse wanted the ‘inked style’ waves, and my commissioner for Marshwood just wanted a map that resembled the style of the Expanse map. Other changes in the style include the font and the style of the city icons. I did pop out of the circle cities on this map for the first time, instead of enclosed or placed directly in the land. This was a good idea, I think. I really like the outcome of the city icons.

Overall, I think I got the color, texture, and the mountains to resemble my earlier work.

Generally people want a map that looks original for their own work, but once in a while people request art that resembles my past art too. This is one of those occasions.

I don’t know which I prefer. I like to develop whole new looks for people’s work, but I am also the best person in the world to copy my old art.

As a cartographer, I can make you a map if you would like. Email me and we can talk about your cartography needs and how much it will cost for your world! I’d love to make you a map that has this exact style, or something completely different!
