I love Octopath traveller, and this map is amazing. I would love something like this printed on a cloth for my games room... I can only dream. You must get asked this all the time, but how long does it take to paint a piece of art like this?

I've been working back and forth on this map for approx 6 months. But in general a map like that would take me 4-6 weeks to complete it.

Cool, all your maps are very impressive. I have always found video game maps very interesting. Do you know if the Octopath traveller map is inspired by europe? The bottom left looks like Spain and the top right it looks like a small Italy. Sorry for all the questions, just one last one. Did Square Enix give you the shape and then you created a fantasy map, or did you have more freedom in the design?

No worries :)
I have been provided by Square Enix with a rough layout of the landmasses. I don't know if they got inspired by the shape of Europe.

My son mentioned this game a few days ago, said he thinks I'd like it, and it sounded familiar to me. This map was the reason why. Great work!

Beautiful work!

I have a question, though. Why did you have to do two different maps for this game?
Reply
:iconfrancescabaerald:
FrancescaBaerald Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2018  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you!
I've done the first one as a test map and it was used for the teaser trailer of the game. The second one is a bigger map and has been used for the final game.

Like always. Masterful work. ;)
Your borders inspire! Your variety on the map immerse one completely. The way you blend the colors to each other is truly thought provoking.
And I'm so happy for you that you got picked up by Square Enix for this, well done! :)

I have painted a lot of these tiny sea illustrations but only a few have been included in the map.

I use different papersize depending on the map (starting from A3 size). This was one of the biggest map I've done ...I think it was bigger than A1 size.

AdrianDelany Featured By Owner Edited Jul 14, 2018
Ho pensato già che ci vuole un formato della carta più grande di come A3 per una carta tanta dettagliata come la questa carta. Allora fotografi le tue carte quando tu sei finito o scansisci pezzo per pezzo e combini con Photoshop? D'altronde mi piacono le tue carte specialmente perché il loro stile veramente è inconfondibile! Una qualità, che io cerco personalmente in proposito di la mia arte anche.
