I Make Maps and Map Accessories


As some of you may or may not know, I am currently working on putting together a large project that was born from the ashes of my failed Farther Than Pleiades. Called Panthology, the project is, essentially, a fictional textbook detailing the arrival and growth of humans in an artificial star system built by long-dead precursors. It will detail everything from the first arrival to the intergalactic age in a textbook style, which will require tons of text, maps, graphs, charts, and illustrations. While I can do most of it myself, my art skills are sadly lacking in the illustration department.

So, I ask you, my followers, for any contact info of artists who might be interested in commissions to illustrate for the book, whether it be a single image or a couple dozen. The images will consist of everything from landscape shots to portraits to cityscapes and beyond.

The book, when it's finished, will be put online for free as well, released bit by bit via my Patreon first and then to deviantart and my website. Mostly first to Patreon because I have to pay for all the illustrations myself for a book I won't get paid for, so hopefully I can round up some cash that way.

The project isn't going to be a swift one, either, and will likely be years in the making, so for any potential artists it isn't something that needs to be done right away, but simply something I'm going ahead and asking about since I'm getting the ball rolling on the project.

So, any of you who are illustrators or know people who fit the bill, feel free to leave a comment or send me a note!

Below are some examples of the type of art I'll be going for:
Full moon by Lipatov
Laughing Legionaries by lathander1987
Env Medieval047 by Eru17
Scifi Environment by yakonusuke
The Swedish Infantry by U-Joe
Beyond the horizon by agnidevi

And hey, if you don't know anyone who can draw and can't draw yourself but like the idea of this project, consider donating to my Patreon, since most of the money I earn via Patreon will be funneled back into the project. The more patrons, the better and more numerous art in the project, plus getting access to bonus material and everything a week before everyone else.

Loves: Alternate history and maps

Well, guess I should introduce myself. I'm Lynn, a college girl looking to be a teacher who has taken up her love for alternate history into the form of map-making, and occasionally dabbling in flag-making as well.

Anyways, here for the maps and flags and other pretty pictures on the site, and hope to make some of my own and meet some cool people. :)

But...I already watch you. And it'd be nice to stop posts NSFW pics to my wall. I have a folder just for NSFW in my faves for a reason.
