I Make Maps and Map Accessories
Well, I suppose most people on deviantart make one of these journals, and I guess I"m no different. I've been having awful money problems lately. The kind where I eat the exact same 390 calorie meal twice a day every day because that's all I can afford, where I'm resorting to selling all I own that isn't 100% necessary so I can try to keep going.
It's not great.
So, yeah, I'm asking for help. I have a Patreon
that I use to get money...when people pay into it, but I run low pretty fast. I'm still kicking myself for using money to buy art last month. If you don't want to donate to that, a direct Paypal donation could be nice. PM me a note if you want to do that so I can set it up.
For those that want commissions, I'm opening them up for cheap. Basically:
Basic GIMP map (no rivers): $10
Complex GIMP map (rivers, more detail, etc.): $15
Photoshop or Inkscape: $25+ (negotiable)
Simple one-country Photoshop or Inkscape: $15
The only things I (probably) won't do are world maps or maps of all of North America, because both take so ridiculously long that by the time I'd finish I wouldn't need the money and will have made something like $.005 an hour.
Other than that, I'm good. If interested in a commission, note me with an idea and (preferably) a basemap and I can get started on a first come, first serve basis. I require half of the payment up front because I've been screwed out of payment 3 times already, so I'd like to at least get half.
Again, I'm sorry to sound so desperate, I just am in dire need of even a little money right now. Hopefully if I get enough and the crisis passes, I can go back to working exclusively on my own maps.
