Would it be possible to buy this as a print, or is that not possible because Nintendo owns it?

I really love it, I would love to have it on a wall <3

I'm really happy you like it, thank you!
Unfortunately SquareEnix owns the rights to sell prints so I'm afraid I can't be of help :(
Maybe a few copies of the Collectors Edition are still available with the printed map inside.

That's a shame. I was so happy I found this, since there's so little good (fan)art available for Octopath, and yours is not even fanart, it's the real deal!

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?

Thank you! :)
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!
