    Post Westeros - a fan project

    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.

    Wow, this is just awesome. I was quite pleased with my own recent map, but this is just amazing. If anyone earns an award, it's you!

    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!!

    @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.

    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.

    Couldn't agree more.
