Map Making (Cartography)

Hi guys, my name is Jeffrey Ranas aka Bricksand from the Philippines and though I have a background with programming I’m more interested to pursue my interest in graphic designing. I used to focus on logo designs, brand advertising and etc…(more of a corporate approach) until recently I discovered interactive fiction novels and it sparks my curiosity since I love to read during my spare time. Anyway, I wish to offer my expertise to all aspiring authors and I believe we can always come up with a favorable arrangement…meaning very negotiable since this is not my main source of income.

Here’s one of my latest work:

I will be using this map for my first ever project WIP Uncharted Tales: Dawn of Conspiracy (Sorry I haven’t coded it yet)

On bigger scale: Vesteria

So if you need assistance you can always send a PM.



Amazing work! I definitely need to pin this so I can contact you when my novel gets further along in production! Good luck!

Thanks mate


Thank you.

Yeah Inkarnate alright, i know that. I used it to make a map or two for Equia. However free is really limited.

Honestly if you want to deal with this, my advice is get a software called Wonderdraft, it’s perfect for stuff like this.

Around $30 i think. At least i don’t have to worry about commercial usage since i bought the software and license with it, using Inkarnate is great, but i don’t think it’s allowed to use the maps from there in games here that are paid for without buying commercial license or something.

Yep you are right inkarnate have issues with IPR…and free version is very limited…i didn’t renew my pro subscription. I already have wonderdraft quite easy to use compare to other tools but still limited when it comes to add-ons…overall still amazing.


Limited when it comes to add-ons yeah. Not that much out there, or at least i didn’t find many websites that provide such.

Bought a few myself, but yeah. Overall at least you can avoid issues with commercial stuff. :slight_smile:

I fully agree but a lot of development underway and I can sense it will give a great advantage considering it’s still less than 2 years in the market…cheers bro! Thanks.
