View Full Version : [CG Choice Map] Westeros - a fan project



Tear

Here is my take on a map of Westeros from G.R.R.Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel series.

It's just a fan project, and of course all the copyright stuff belongs to those who deal with copyright stuff.

It's done with Photoshop, a mouse, a tablet, and lots of hair pulling.

I did a lot of research, but some locations are quite difficult to locate exactly from the text descriptions. Here you have the best I could do without calling Mr. Martin himself.

I hope you like it.

What can I say? What can I possibly say?

I can't even begin with the superlatives to describe this map.

A true work of art.

My only request is: Can you post a link to a high res version?

Fantastic work Tear. I've never read these books but now I think I might pick them up. More than enough of your own style showing through so as to only hint at the foundations of Pasis. Now go get some commissions and take over the world :) Sniff sniff, I think I smell a shiny new badge heading your way soon. I think I'll snag a copy for my Inspiration folder.

Well I had already posted in your WIP thread about how much I Like this, but I'll say it again anyway...

I LIKE IT!! :D

@Ascension - This series is well worth the read, one of my favorites in recent years. I've already read it 4 times.

Amazing map. First time I've been here in a while and seeing this makes me glad I stopped by. :)

Had to click the link when I saw it was Westeros, love those books and this map does them proud. Really, really great.

Werthead

Absolutely fantastic.

I believe George has been alerted to the map's existence :)

Really good maps of Westeros have been sadly few and far between. Guardians of Order had a decent one with their D20 RPG, and the previous one Ran did on Westeros.org is very good, but otherwise they've been pretty meh. I'll go out on a limb and say this is the best map of the continent I've ever seen.

Brutally good.

I don't have the old Guardians of Order version of the RPG anymore, but as I recall this more than rivals the map they included in their version.

Brutally good.

I don't have the old Guardians of Order version of the RPG anymore, but as I recall this more than rivals the map they included in their version.

Aside from the basic quality of the map, the GOO version came out before A FEAST FOR CROWS, which put a load more locations on the map. So this version not only looks better (although the GOO one is still nice) but it's also a lot more complete. I can't see any locations that have been missed.

The only slight improvement I can suggest might be naming the mountain ranges? The Red Mountains, Mountains of the Moon and Frostfangs are all unlabelled on this map.

EDIT: Very minor typo. House Marbrand's castle is 'Ashemark', not 'Ashenmark'.

I can't see any other errors. DRAGON Magazine did a supposedly professional map of Westeros once and it was riddled with typos and castles in the wrong place. This one wipes the floor with it :)

Tear
08-17-2009, 06:56 PM
Thanks to all who replied, especially Pasis, since it was his tutorial that motivated me to give this map a try.

I did write a mail to Mr. Martin on behalf of the Cartographer's Guild, but he's a busy man, and many would agree that he should rather write books than read e-mails. So let's just wait and see.

Thanks for all the kind words.

Werthead

I know that both me and Ran have made GRRM aware of the map's existence, and it's been added to the gallery at Westeros.org (the more-or-less official ASoIaF website). However, there is an immense timelag between these things happening and GRRM responding; he's still answering fan emails from about a year ago ;)

Tear, are you planning to do any further such maps, maybe one of the Slaver's Bay map from ASoS or the Free Cities one from ADWD (when it comes out)? I'm quite interested to see what you come up with next!

Can't promise anything, sorry.
Depends on where our game will go, I think.

I have some non-mapping projects going at the moment, but my next mapping endeavour (whatever it might be) will likely be a different style to try new things.

Another ASoIaF fan has used, with Tear's permission, the map to create this annotated timeline (http://www.sermountaingoat.co.uk/timeline/index.php) for the books. Impressive stuff, if still incomplete.

Thales

I'm a newbie here, so I've just been poking around the site a bit. Wow, is this ever gorgeous. In particular, the use of texture is brilliant, as it gives real depth to the topology going from hills to mountains, etc. I don't think I've ever seen texture used so effectively. Awesome.

Necrothread, but I thought it worth letting Tear and other Campaign Cartographer fans know how well-regarded this map has been: the HBO team have been using it as a reference whilst filming the Game of Thrones TV series (due to air in April), George RR Martin has apparently been directing people to it as the best map of Westeros he's seen and apparently Bantam Books have been so impressed by it that they're redoing the official maps in the books as they feel they need to up their game.

So, impressive going :)

This map is truly awesome !

Is it possible to have a version without typo, or with a typo I can edit ?

I had the bad idea to read the book in my mother tongue, French, and every location has a different name...
I'd like to traduce the map, because in French, there's only that (http://nsa03.casimages.com/img/2008/11/07/081107102650319813.png) available...

Some names have a really surprising translation :

for example :

Summerhall -> Lestival
Evenfall Hall -> La Vesprée
Night Song -> Séréna

So it's quite hard for us to use this wonderful map while reading. A shame !

Some more info (http://www.westeros.org/GoT/Features/Entry/4828/) from someone who visited the HBO production offices whilst they were shooting the TV series, and had Tear's map on display:


Bryan Cogman conducted me into the art department’s offices, where I saw a gentleman—I’m afraid I did not catch his name—with some absolutely gorgeous maps on his desk that were done in a period sort of style. I know one of them featured the region in which the westerlands and the riverlands border one another, and another was more of a map of the whole realm. Truly beautiful, and I hope HBO considers turning these into posters if maps are within their licenses (as an aside, among the many things I saw on the walls was this fan map by Tear, which it turned out had been something George had sent to the production and which they said had been very useful in understanding where things were).

Eilathen
03-06-2011, 10:24 AM
No, no it's not. I think that as of now, 7 are planned ... . And let us see if he really makes the date. I mean, I guess we will see a book in July...question is...will it be the whole of ADwD or will he split it again (so as not to miss the published release date)...

Anyway, Tear's map is absolutely stunning. I have a printed version of it at my games...it looks even better on real paper :)

Ramah
03-06-2011, 12:29 PM
Aye, the one after this one will be called "The Winds of Winter" and the last one will be called "A Dream of Spring" if memory serves.

And Eilathen, he had better not split it again as this one was supposed to be the other half of Feast For Crows when he split that one. If he splits it we will only have a quarter of the characters. :)

03-07-2011, 05:17 AM
Well, if the series isn't completed maybe there will come along someone else who can finish it, ala Brian Sanderson for the Robert Jordan books. Of course, it's not like you can just grab any old writer and have them do such a bang up job like that. I think they were quite fortunate to have one that has done so well.

Hopefully, it will never be an issue.

HBO's map of the Free Cities (and the east coast of Westeros), which will be used on a forthcoming website to provide information for the TV series. The map is based on one prepared by George R.R. Martin for A DANCE WITH DRAGONS. This doesn't cover the same full area as that map - Volantis, Qohor, Norvos, Lorath, the island of Ibben and the River Rhoyne are all off the edges of this map - but should serve as a satisfying taster.

I have no idea whom the artist is, someone at HBO I guess. I'd love to see Tear redo this and add it to his Westeros map :)

Hello all, first time poster here, and I registered with the express purpose of asking this question:

Does anyone have a copy of this map without any of the text or city markers? (river names, city names, key, the towers of the wall, etc. No text whatsoever)

I'm putting together my own homebrew board/card game based on Game of Thrones, and I want to use this map as the board. However, I'd like to put the labels on myself, as the game tiles.

I've tried removing them myself, and it looked... well, it wasn't pretty.

Thanks!

I'm sure Tear has a copy, or can make one, since he made it but we don't see him too much anymore.

I was going to offer that if he didn't want to go through the trouble of deleting the text, he could send over the working file (with layers) and I could delete it myself, but I wasn't sure if it would be considered rude to ask someone for their wips and raw data.

[edit] typing that up gave me an idea, and I just checked. Unfortunately, he didn't post this map in the 'works in progress' forum at some stage of completeness that I could use.

Now when you say "don't see him too much anymore", there's not much chance of me finding what I need, is there?

Okay. Here is what happened.
Focus, the publisher of the french game developer Cyanide contacted me and asked if they could use my map for their game "Game of Thrones - Genesis".
I said no, because it is George's world.
Then George sent me a mail telling me it is my call.
So I gave them permission.
They will probably do a trailer and maybe a printed map for the collector's edition. No promises, though.
This is still a non-profit non-exclusive fan project. It istill perfectly legal to print this map for personal purposes.
Feel free to hang the map in your gaming room.

I have only read Game of Thrones, but as I panned across the map I realized I have been here before. This map is not only beautiful but it can actually take someone who has knowledge of the setting into the world itself.

Tear, I am less a beginner in the art mapping, but this does not stop me to admire your work. I was impressed when I first saw in 2010. Now I'm even more impressed because I know that the map was made in 2009. I hope you refine more and who is already working in the construction of other continents (Essos and Sothoryos) of A Song of Ice and Fire by GRRM. Congratulations.

Hi Tear

I've spent quite a lot of time over the last few months working on a speculative world map for A Song of Ice and Fire to be used in my Animated Timeline Map project. This new map incorporates and builds on your map of Westeros to include Essos, Ibben and the Summer Isles in a similar style. I know you've given permission for your map to be used in any non-commercial fan project but this builds on your work in a very substantial way and given your recent good news (congratulations btw) I wanted to run things past you to make sure things have not changed before releasing this onto the Internet.

I have included a scroll with licence details in the bottom left corner of the map which clearly indicates George as the copyright holder and attributes the original map of Westeros to yourself with the URL for this thread on the Cartographer's Guild website for reference. It is my intention to release this speculative world map under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License which means other fans are free to share and remix the work provided it is non-commercial, they attribute their work to its original creators (namely yourself and I with GRRM as copyright holder) and their work is released under same or similar licence.

I am also planning to create a website interface for the map which will allow people to hide the labels, city/town markers and various other details, and there will be various different versions of the image available for download since I know a lot of people want that sort of thing for their own gaming purposes.

Please get in touch with me via email on themountaingoat AT live DOT co DOT uk and I will send a copy of the map. If nothing else I'd like to hear your thoughts on the finished map. I know a lot of people have asked if you were going to do a map of Essos, not sure if you were going to but I hope this won't spoil any plans you may have had in that regard.

I appreciate you may not check this thread that often so I may need to try and PM you instead in the near future which means posting a few more times on this forum so apologies to anyone here if I spam up a few threads.

WOW. Amazing! So much better than anything I've ever seen - far better than the ones in the books. I can't imagine the work that went into this...so much detail. Just an incredible creation.

Hi, does anyone know where a high res version of the map can be found (or has it and can email it to me)? Awesome job!

Have you tried contacting the artist directly? Since it's Tear's work, he would be the one to request/purchase a hi-res copy from.

I haven't yet. I saw you needed a minimum number of posts to PM someone and I didn't want to spam the page. He mentioned earlier that printing it for personal use is fine so I thought I would check and see if there was a copy floating around.

Has this been posted yet (so many to read through...). Monks has pointed me at this which was pointed to him from Ozy off the Outerra forum...

Your map on google earth. The news site isnt referencing your authorship but the original news site did as well as the guy is on his page. So links in order of increasing rawness...

This map is truly awesome !

Is it possible to have a version without typo, or with a typo I can edit ?

I had the bad idea to read the book in my mother tongue, French, and every location has a different name...
I'd like to traduce the map, because in French, there's only that (http://nsa03.casimages.com/img/2008/11/07/081107102650319813.png) available...

Some names have a really surprising translation :

for example :

Summerhall -> Lestival
Evenfall Hall -> La Vesprée
Night Song -> Séréna

So it's quite hard for us to use this wonderful map while reading. A shame !

I was wondering the same thing??
