Dear map-makers! It’s time to take another look last month’s community maps. If the selection is a bit smaller than usual, it’s only because many maps were created for the August mapping competition, which I did not want to double up here, especially before the winners were announced. If you want to check them out, and perhaps help with the voting, head over to the forum thread. But do enjoy these beautiful maps first!

JeffB created Richardson’s Roadhouse in the Dungeons of Schley style and did a superb job with adding atmospheric lighting.

While Ricko Hasche‘s city and village scenes are familiar by now, he doesn’t fail to delight with this wonderfully atmospheric cursed village

Mike Degn‘s Cloth-Salt Colonies are a wonderful example of how beautiful a modern overland map can be.

For the Chronicles of Möwendorf Morrgans has combined a whole slew of different map styles, including Pär Lindström’s book border and Vandel’s location vignettes. Great stuff!

Wyvern‘s whimsical map of Queen Mica’s Scintillating Palace (i.e. an anthive) just warms my heart. Such a lovely design!

Eric McNeal is back with another historical map of (actually a whole set of maps) in the Ferraris style, this time of the area of Miami. Gorgeous!

Last but not least, Mark Fradley shared his first city map with this underground dwarven city. I love the color-coding, great work, Mark!

Dear map-makers! Freshly back from GenCon and safely over the jet lag, I’ve now had time to check out all the community-made maps of July. You’ve been really busy, haven’t you!? Here’s just a small and pretty random selection of maps that caught my eye. Sorry to all the others I missed!

I chose two maps by EucalyptusNow, because I couldn’t decide which I liked better, the Oasis Town of Dekunu or Pamberton on Twynne.

Dear map-makers, please enjoy another wonderful selection of maps created by our community members in June. There were far more than these few, which I had to skip for space reasons. Please visit our forum and/or Facebook group to see them!

AleD drew the city map of Borghello using Sue Daniel’s Darklands City style.

Dear map-makers, summer is upon us and before I head off to indulge into a bit of hiking in the Scottish Isles (looks like a “THe Cartographer’s Travels” blog post may be coming up), let’s take another look at the beautiful maps that have been shared in the community.

Daniel Pereda De Pablo created this wonderful list fo heroes from an old Dragonlance adventure with Character Artist 3.

Dear map-makers! Another month has passed and it’s time to look back and collect some of the wonderful maps (and other drawings) created by the community. So take a break, sit back and enjoy the mapping work that others (or you!) have done in April.

EukalyptusNow used the Serpentine City style to create Siaiola a fantasy version of Venice.

Hello fellow map-makers, it’s time again to showcase some of the wonderful maps the community shared during the last month. There’s some really amazing work going on by all of you aut there, thank you very much!

Sue Daniel’s amazing Ferraris city style is truly one of our more advanced styles to work with, but look how splendid it looks when put together by Lizzy_Maracuja for her Accordo city map.

Thank you to all you cartographers out there who are sharing your work with the world, irrespective of borders and nationalities. Your continued support for our hobby and your fellow map-makers is much appreciated. Here are just a few samples of your glorious work in February!

WeathermanSweden used publicly available altitude data to import it into Fractal Terrains, export that to CC3+ and create this greant rendition of how northern Europe would have looked 15,000 years ago!

Let’s do a last look back to 2021 with some community maps that were posted in December, either on the ProFantasy forum or in the Facebook community group. Thank you to each and every mapper participating, no matter whether you maps is shown here or not, you’re all awesome!

We start with probably the most prolific recent contributor in the Facebook group, Eric McNeal. Not only are his maps numerous, they are also all very beautiful. Take a look at these two examples:
The Empire of Manevryn
The West Crown

As we’re closing in on the end of the year and looking back on the maps posted by the community in November, there is no sign of you map-makers letting up with the awesome maps. Check out just a few of the cartographic bonanza that the month has been:

Lizzy_Maracuja‘s post-apocalypse settlement of Hope looks wonderful in its two different lighting versions, one at day and one at night.

Looking back over the user contributions of last month I really had some hard decisions on what to include to keep this post manageable. So many beautiful maps posted! I hope you enjoy our users’ work of October.

Seeing so much of her work in the Annuals, we tend to take Sue Daniel‘s mapping work for granted. So take this amazing little dungeon floorplan as a reminder what outstanding maps she produces, especially when she has the time and opportunity to focus on one specific map over a complete style.
