My Cartography Work

Parchment Maps

Parchment style is perhaps the most classic look of a fantasy map. The colours and texturing are created to evoke the feeling of an antiqued paper or parchment. The perfect map to accompany a classic medieval fantasy story.

Partial Colour Maps

Partial colour style mainly differs from parchment maps by colouring. It's more stylised than a full colour map, mainly consisting of two main colours - land and sea.

Grayscale Maps

Black and white, or grayscale maps are best suited for physical books. The minimal colouring and texturing make the maps more printer friendly.

Full Colour Maps

Full colour maps are more complex than parchment or partial colour works. The colours are usually aimed to be a tad more realistic - blues for waters, greens for land, and different biomes are represented in different colours.

Personal projects / Style tests

Every now and then I like to experiment with different styles and colours. Here you can see a few results of those experiments.
