I am in need of some map decorations to put in the ocean, you know like a sea monster, or a ship, etc. The things that I would really like are a nice medieval fantasy looking ship, a half submerged shark or something like that, and anything else. If you could post a download, a link, or even maybe a tutorial to make one that would be great.
Thank you.

Welcome to Eabrek !

Nice searching guys. I was sure we had some of that here too. Gandwarf had a link to some middle east university map collection which had oodles of old maps and I remember some of them had all those decorations in them. Some of them were more decoration than map...

That sort of thing I would look up Liams Old Books too. The link is around here somewhere in the resources section. Might have to use the forum search to find that.

Yeah, this website has tons of old maps:
http://historic-cities.huji.ac.il/

(At least, I think you meant that website)

It has lots of maps like this one:

Notice the beautiful ships. Not sure if you can just cut pieces out of the map though... it looks like it is copyrighted.

Decided to move this thread to the mapping elements forum.
I am trying to keep the mapmaking requests forum just for map requests, and not specific elements.
