I get asked a lot via messages and comments, and so I thought I should put it down here for people to see. I -don't- do commissions and I'm most likely -not- putting together a tutorial anytime soon. Both aforementioned statements might change in the future, but currently there is no guarantee or, indeed, certainty that I will ever be open for commissions or plan to make any map tutorials. Commissions are possible only on rare occasions (meaning, in a general sense, that I'd have to know the commissioner personally, and additionally there would have to be some form of payment of sorts; preferably actual money).

I do love answering the questions that I get every now and then, but it gets stale when the questions are in regards to whether or not I'm open for commissions, and I have to respond with a copy-paste answer. Any questions or comments inclined towards my worlds are most welcome, and I'll do my best to respond to those. I'll also try to provide any help to struggling map-makers should they have any particular questions about how I do certain map features or such. But please keep in mind that I'm not an expert, and nor should I be considered such. I'm still learning.

For anything commission or tutorial related, I suggest heading on over to cartography-guild.deviantart.c… and… , as I am more than certain that you'll find what you are looking for on either of these two pages.


Races of Tariel - Part I by Levodoom
Races of Tariel - Part I
These are conceptual heads depicting the general appearance for some of the races that inhabit the world of Tariel. These 10 are mainly the ones that are most numerous or most established throughout the world, as well as the 10 that are typically referred to as the "native races". I realize there are quite a few similarities to races from other settings, though that is a worry I'm not too much concerned with. The initial idea for these races was very much built on the typical tropes and visual features that are common throughout general fantasy. It should also be mentioned that these races' appearances aren't final, as it's merely just conceptual at this point. I wanted to draw them for the purpose of better visualizing and illustrating how the races of my world look, or at least how I generally intend to have them look.

The first six races have a fair bit of information written about them, which can be found by following the link to my website below. The remaining four races are still being written about, and I can't really say when exactly I'll find the time to finish up their pages.

Levo's Island - Practice by Levodoom
Levo's Island - Practice
Just some random island drawing for practice. It's nothing special and I didn't spend a lot of time on it.

I've also uploaded a quick video of the process for this map for those interested:…

The Planeworlds - Illustrations by Levodoom
The Planeworlds - Illustrations
These illustrations represent four of the eight known planes that surround the world of Tariel. I originally made the first one for practice, but decided that I could probably just use it as an illustration for one of my pages. So I made three more since I also decided to write a little bit about the others as well.

You can learn more about these four Planeworlds by following the links below:

Tariel's Notable Organizations - Part 3 by Levodoom
Tariel's Notable Organizations - Part 3
I was bored and ended up playing around with new organization symbols. I haven't written anything detailed about these yet, and what I have at the moment is mostly quite vague. The first five symbols belong to organizations that are mainly situated on the Ryumar continent. The last one is mostly very global. I'm most happy with how the Shattered Blade symbol turned out, though I spent way too long on it for something that's basically a very simple design.

Nations of Ryumar by Levodoom
Nations of Ryumar
I've had these lying around for quite some time now. I was mainly waiting to post these for a more suitable time, but in the end I figured I'd just post them here anyway. I've yet to write anything substantial about these nations yet, and the various crests are still being worked on. This is all more or less work in progress for the moment. Again, I used a few free-vectors when making these, so I can't take full credit.

Wow, your works are very impressive! :) I have a gigantic imagination, and i hope to become a game designer one day, and build worlds to this extent!! I just need to learn how to make maps... im great in the lore department though! Do you have any recommendations as to what tools to use??
Levodoom Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I personally only use Photoshop, though it's a rather expensive investment. Some people use GIMP, but I'll admit that I have no experience with that one. I suggest hopping over to, as they have a fair few threads regarding tips, tutorials, software etc.
