COMMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD AS AI GET THROUGH MY CURRENT BACKLOG.
FEEL FREE TO GET IN TOUCH BUT I WON'T BE ABLE TO START ANY NEW PROJECTS UNTIL
Hi there! I'm a freelance cartographer based in Malta, a country with a long history and cartographical tradition. I've been worldbuilding and making maps for as long as I can remember and became Photoshop ACE certified specifically so that I could make maps for my world of Elyden, which I have been meticulously working on for close to 15-years now.
When not working on Elyden I am busy working on commissions for authors, roleplayers (both casual and professional), as well as for other projects, so feel free to get in touch with any projects you have in mind, and I'll be more than happy to discuss the project with you, with no commitment requests.
Though my work on the Atlas Elyden is in a more modern style, using hypsometric levels (commonly referred to as topographical maps), I also enjoy making more traditional fantasy maps, as well as city maps, and simple architectural cross-sectional illustrations. I started out in a more traditional fantasy style and am able to approach maps from a variety of styles, as you can see below. I work in digital media (using photoshop) using a Wacom tablet, so the maps are still hand-drawn, albeit digitally, though some elements may have been drawn on paper and scanned. No parts of my maps are procedurally generated, and every part is made from scratch.

"Nate was an amazing artist who took great care to ensure the map was to specification and took me through every step to get everything just right. He is great to work with and I would absolutely work with him again! Thank you so much, Nate."
"Nathan's maps are absolutely gorgeous, and he's fantastic to work with. He makes an effort to understand what you need, and he's eager to collaborate with you to get the map perfect.

"A master of cartography, Nate was an absolute delight to work with over the last couple of months. Patient, understanding, and incredibly knowledgeable he helped turn my vision into three gorgeous maps from a simple description and sketch. Guiding me through every step of the way through his map-making process.
There were times I became uncertain where to go with my map, but with his in-depth understanding of geography and climate, he advised me past even those struggles. I would 100% recommend him to anyone wanting a map created and should I need another map in the future he would be the first person I would look to.
If you want a map this is your guy, you're only regret would be not letting him help you."
