Pitax by butterfrog Pitax by butterfrog

A couple more maps for Paizo.

City map for Pitax, city on the Pathfinder roleplaying game located in the River Kingdoms, on the world of Golarion. The numbering and notes ARE NOT OFFICIAL, that's something I added as a sample.

This work was a reference map for uber awesome Rob Lazzerati to do the proper map in all the Pathfinder cartography glory.

I was assigned by James Jacobs to do the city design based on a sketch sheet and a few description pages with some of the city locations and people. This was my third assignment doing cities of golarion. In the end, James asked me to color it to se a "semi-final" version of it. You'll notice the map has sketch outlines if you look close enough ;).

HEre's a link to the Map folio where you can get a copy of Lazzeratti's final map. It appear on Pathfinder's Kingmaker final AP.

Here's a link to the map folio [link]

My first colored map ever, hope you like!

I *may* have some cartography projects coming up over the next year, actually. You have a rate sheet or professional site I could go to for more information on paying you for your work? :)

Among other things in Pathfinder I absolutely love the maps. How is this done? I have always wanted to draw maps like this.

:iconbutterfrog:
butterfrog Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have a step-by-step process link in this map :thumb255663916:

This one got made pretty much in the same way, except on the outlines, these are hand-made pencil.

That worked, thanks! So you just do all your map work in Corel and Photoshop? Do you use one of those pen tablets?
