All in all a nice map. You've done a great job on the sea; the colors are lovely and the waves turned out great. This for me was the re...



Arkhemia Commission by arsheesh
Arkhemia Commission
Here is a commission I did for fantasy author V.R.Cardoso for his forthcoming novel The Dragon Hunter and the Mage: Wounds in the Sky Book 1. Although I've done many commissions in a photorealistic style, this was my first hand drawn commission, which was a nice change of pace. My client requested that the color scheme be similar to the vibrant Dragon Age maps. I digitally painted the map in Photoshop Elements, labeled it in Inkscape, and did a handful of other things to it in GIMP. Hope you enjoy.

I am a PhD student (studying philosophy) who dabbles in artwork and the occasional art commission in his spare time. My primary art interests have been in fantasy map making, though I intend to branch out into illustration as time allows. If you are interested in commissioning a piece from me feel free to send me a PM at

Congratulations on getting your Palladium Fantasy map published! I just saw it in the sneak peek of Bizantium and the Northern Isles

Thanks so much FeroceFV!  I was quite surprised to here that this was moving forward myself, but I'm quite honored.  Palladium was the first RPG I ever played and though I haven't adventured in that world for decades now, it still holds a warm place in my heart.  It's really neat to see my map published in one of Palladium's products.
