gehernandeznanochem got their new illustration or graphics by running a design contest:
Black and white map for a self-published fantasy/adventure novel set in the Late Bronze Age
Check out gehernandeznanochem's Illustration or graphics contest…
What's your vision?
Overview: The commission is for a map made for an adventure/fantasy novel set in the Greek mythological universe. This project has the potential to be a regular project within the series of books planned with each book having its own set of maps. Dimensions: As the book is formatted to 6” (width) by 9” (height), the map made has to fit within this page size. A size of 5” (width) by 7.5” (height), which leaves a half-inch margins on the left and right and a three-quarter-inch margin on the top and bottom might be an appropriate size for this map. Details: See references, particularly ‘Aegean X’ and ‘Aegean XI’. The map is to be of most of Greece and parts of western Turkey. It must be in black-and-white (e.g. grayscale). The medium can be whatever you fancy. Pencil, pen, or brush, hand- or digitally-drawn, I leave this up to you. It is to be a hybrid of a political map featuring region names and a physical map featuring some geographical features (e.g. major mountain ranges, river systems, etc.). In terms of lettering, no specific preference. In terms of compass rose, no specific preference. In terms of scale, English (e.g. miles, mi) in the least. I would also welcome both English and Metric (e.g. kilometers, km). In terms of border, I would like to see the Greek fret or meander pattern. In terms of map name, no specific preference. In terms of style, no specific preference. I will give three artists style I do like: RenflowerGrapx (@RenflowerGrapx), Tiffany Munro (Feed the Multiverse), and Rafal Zatwarnicki (New Horizons). These are just a handful of styles I like. Please, feel free to approach this project with whatever style you most use or fancy and/or are best skilled in. References: Attached files are of the regions wanting to be illustrated. The first two are maps generated by me using WonderDraft™. The first map, ‘Aegean X’ emphasizes the region names; the second map, ‘Aegean XI” emphasizes physical geographical features (e.g. mountains and rivers). The third and fourth files attached, “Mainland Greece I” and “Caria” are taken from Wikimedia Commons. The former emphasizes region names. The latter emphasizes the geography of the Milesian coast at the time envisioned for this work (Late Bronze Age, 1250-1150 BC). The coastline of the Troad region today is also much different than that of the Late Bronze Age. This is reflected in the maps I have drawn. Other resources you might find useful in this project are Google Maps and https://maps-for-free.com. The latter allows a user to toggle on different geographical features such as water, ice, sand, forest, etc. Misc. Notes: The time period of the work, as noted, is the Late Bronze Age, the Mycenaean Era of Greece.
Please, direct any questions using the direct messaging system provided for by the platform. I will do my best to review any questions, comments, etc. at least once in the morning and once in the evening, that is, I will try to respond back to you within 6-12 hours if not sooner.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their illustration or graphics.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
gehernandeznanochem collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
