Time Constraints

I currently have no constraints other than it should not take longer than two months...

Style

The style should be the usual simple Lord of the Rings stylish map, so a simple style.

Description of the Map

I only have a rough idea what I want it to look like, so a coastlines and stuff, you can decide them. Basically a huge island in the center of the map with four other islands scattered around it, these are the homelands of elves, dwarves, orcs, Tieflings and Gnomes. The huge island is the home of the men.

Names for the islands

Doashel - The center island

Kearanah - Active volcanic island, the home for Orcs

Inai'elo - Island with lots of forest, the home for Elves

Bandras - Mountainous island with some land, the original home for the Dwarves

Xeach - The home for Gnomes

Kraeminah - Home for Tieflings.

Quality & Size

Semi-professional, I don't care about the size, just nothing too big, something that I could post in a thread of a RP.

Copyrights

You the artist gets the copyrights, I however should be able to use it as Roleplay/D&D Campaign map.

And also, not forgetting the word 'please'.

I can whip up a nice little hand-made map for you, if you like. If you like the kind of things I do ... I'd be happy to.

Let me get this straight tho': 1 big island + an island each for the Orks, Elfs, Dwarfs, Nomes and Teeflings?

Yeah, cool that someone actually answered this thread anyways,

There is one island for each of the five races, this just basically means that they all have their own base homeland where they came from, many of the races have found new homes in Doashel.

1 island + 5 smaller ones scattered around the big one.

Oh, that sounds easy enough. And you're leaving my hands free to name things as I see fit? :) Cool.

No... The Names in the first post are to be used like I 'detailed' them. And please, don't name other stuff than the islands....

How I did it? :) Why, simple. I took a drafting compass and drew three circles on a sheet of letraset bleedproof marker paper, then I took a 0.5mm letraset pen and drew the coastlines, then I drew the mountain outlines, then I used a 0.3mm pen to draw the rivers, then I used a 0.1mm pen to draw the forests and swamps, then I used the 0.3mm pen again to shade the forests and finally a 0.7mm pen to colour in the mountains. Lines drawn, I scanned the whole thing in grayscale at 300 dpi, adjusted some levels and used a pretty fuzzy brush to shade the coastlines on a separate masked layer of the water surfaces, before applying a half-tone sketch filter to the shading. Finally I added the labels in Trajan with a pretty solid 4px white outline.

I think that was all :)
