Looks like it's ripped right off Tolkien's books. And that is actually illegal: [link]

"Maps of Tolkien's world have been mostly removed from the Internet at the request of the Tolkien estate lawyers, even when the map is not made by Tolkien, and the map maker makes no money as is the usual case. Some maps may later be licensed by the Tolkien estate and back online."

Thanks for your concern, but I hand drew all of them in Photoshop. I honestly think cleaning up scans of Tolkien's tiny maps from the books would have taken more time than just drawing triangles in Photoshop. I'll take it as a compliment that you think they're similar to his work, but I didn't even look at my LotR maps when I drew them so any similarities are very much coincidence. I can only assume you didn't actually look closely at one of his maps before accusing me. I pulled out a book to have a look. The Middle Earth map in the Fellowship of the Ring has lines much heavier than mine, and there's significantly less detail. It's obvious they were drawn with ink and pen.

If you compare the image pack to an actual map of Middle Earth rather than the memory of a map of Middle Earth, you'll see that Tolkien trends towards the left side of his mountains being almost completely filled in, and the line on the right is fairly thick; the shading has blobs that indicate the original inkwork. There are only occasional diagonal lines indicating shading in the mountains. My lines are far finer, and if you zoom in you'll see on a few of the mountains the dead giveaway that I was using Photoshop: there are places where I was drawing white on black; you can see it on a few of the mountains on this map near the bottom if you click and zoom in.

The Tolkien Estate definitely doesn't have a copyright on hand drawn mountains, that would put quite a few other fantasy novels out of business, I wager. Pern has maps of this style, as does Narnia, for a couple of well known examples... this map style is pretty much standard for the fantasy cartography genre and understandably there's only so many ways one can draw mountains in black and white: they're just jagged triangles.

Cheers.

I was wondering, how did you do the border on your map ? That kind of repetition of the shores ? I was looking for it since a long time. Thanks you a lot for brushes and stuff :la:

:iconcalthyechild:
calthyechild Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I have a map making tutorial up here. It explains the process of making the repetition of the shores... which is basically just select the blank color underneath all the texture that is the land, make a new layer, stroke, expand selection, stroke, expand selection, etc. But the tutorial should explain the whole mapping process in great detail with pictures and everything. :D [link]

You're welcome.
