My project

Hi Backers, here I am with my latest project, a a 42 inches Galleon Ship called the 1000 Swords! A series of superb digital files all in 300 DPI ( might be 240 in the end if the files are too heavy ) In JPEG format.

You may think I made boat/ship maps in the past but well, if you thought I did, you are wrong!

I always thought that ship map were the longest hardest technical map to do , so I never found the courage to do one. But after 20+ years of producing arts I realized that I forgot about making one, I think my skills can prove that I can do a complex ship map. 

I did it , took 28 hours just to do the main deck, it's crazy hard but wow, it's so cool to create and think about all the fine details you can find on a boat, it's awesome.

This map is freak*** huge, the main deck itself is 40 inches long , meaning in scale, 200 feet long !

4 full decks like this , and don't forget the stern castle,  almost as big as the deck when you take the front and back and even more on 2 floors. That means you get 4 deck maps, 4 stern castle map, and 1 under storage quarter deck.

You also get a navigating 1000 swords in action on the sea with a day and night map, meaning 2 more full maps.

I will also include a plan with room description and on top of this some angle 3d shot of the ship.

On top of that I am also creating a 50 nautical/pirate/island art pack for personal or commercial use depending on your needs.

IN THE STRETCH GOALS

-I want to do a giant inn called the Inn of 1000 swords that belongs to the rich crew of the 1000 swords ship. A multi level inn with a special ambiance, very Pirate-ishhh style.

And even more , if you go far away in the stretch goals I will add a ghost version of the 4 decks and stern castles. That would be a whole lot of work but we never know if we can reach some huge stretch goals in there. ( Note that the 349$ pledge and the 749$ pledge only count as 1/3 of the amount in the stretch goals table).

If we reach 5,000$ I will give 1 of my old  campaign to all of you for free between 4 choices that I will add later.

My plan

Main deck is 100% done, same for night and day of the navigating 1000 swords map, The first level of the stern castle is almost finished already 11 hours done on it . We need to reach that 1500$ for me to do the rest of the decks and castles and arts and well all the time consuming stuff ;-)

Rewards

Let's make this one a true success, It will be the hardest and biggest map I ever did.

So I am counting on you beloved backers to support me in this project, it will also be perfect to print on a poster with the shear size of this map .

Have fun

Steve, Map Alchemists
