Thror's Map - 'The Hobbit' Replica by Girl-on-the-Moon Thror's Map - 'The Hobbit' Replica by Girl-on-the-Moon
My scanner wasn’t quite big enough, but here’s a much better look at my hand-crafted replica of Thror’s map. I wasn’t pleased at all with the print available from Weta workshop, and thought I could just do my own and save a bunch of money.

Daler Rowney Acrylic Artist’s Ink in Sepia 251 & Flame Red 517
Hunt 100 nib
9”x12” Canson 24 lb parchment paper in “natural”
About 6 hours of work and lots of water and mixing of inks.

I’d ask that no one use this for stock purposes. Thanks! Merry holidays!

It takes about five hours of work to make a map. I love doing it though! Very meditative. :D

I'm afraid not. I don't like my work being on FaceBook, there's been theft and uncredited use because of it in the past and I have a no Facebok rule. :/
I'm not sure I understand your second question though.

Ah, well they do have moon runes that you can see by shining a black light on it. :)

Gorgeous! One thing that would be neat is if you did the moon letters in an ink only seen by black light. Just so it had the same effect :)

I am selling one of them for 120 bucks. I know no one can really afford that, but it's what the work costs.
I'd LOVE to to the marauder's map! OOOH I'd just need to find some really good reference pictures...

BazookoidBen Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Don't tempt me, having a year of unemployment and sponging off the government has given me more than enough to afford one of those beauties!

It really depends on what the Hogwarts in your head looks like, or if you want reference. Simply googling it gives quite a few good images.
-like the the cover for example : [link]

That said, the prop you see is never fully unfolded and the replicas are frigging HUGE. It never fit with the image in my head that it really was just a small scrap that would easily fit in a pocket.

I've only really managed to map Hogwarts in my head properly for the first time recently. Maybe I'll commission you for a version based on my notes! xD

Oh I SHALL tempt you! TEMPT. TEMPT. lol
If I attempted the Marauder's map, I'd like to do the full movie prop version. Seems like a challenge I'd love to step up to... but yeah that would be hundreds of dollars in work time alone. :P
If you can work out a smaller version though, that would be an interesting commission. Could end up costing more than $120 anyway though, since it's inherently more complicated.

I've seen people's attempts to make pocket sized versions of the movie ones, - which personally makes sense. Looking at the full thing unfolded..it's bigger than me. D8 Dammit Harry Potter design team, your sense of detail is scary...

And now I am torn between this map, or a Marauders....darnit...

I would need to have my own place first. It would be something on the long list of "Stuff I want to frame". And frankly, I need more walls. D8

I am also running into that problem. :P
I've just got my map on my bookshelf though, and it works pretty nicely when it's not in a frame. Whatevs dude, I mean I still have to work out how to do moon runes. So. Yeah.
