Having taken some time off over the holidays (pretty much the first time all year), I decided to get back to a map that I started ages ago. I did Thror's map from the Hobbit a few years back, and this is in the same style, using ink dip pens on real calfskin parchment. The titles got a little messed up when the nib didn't quite play fair but I managed to repair most of the damage. Here's some progress shots along with the finished thing. I may go in and add some definition to the coastlines just to try and make a more obvious delineation between land and sea.
