The Marauders Map by theyoungtook The Marauders Map by theyoungtook
The Marauders Map as made by Me!

I drew this map whilst waiting for the Deathly Hallows to come out. not sure how long it took but i'll say it took a while.

characters, names and places belong to JK Rowling.

Incredible work. It's THE best map I've seen yet.

 

I'll eventually be making my own, and if it comes out HALF as good as this one, it'll be brilliant. :D

This has to be THE BEST replica of the map I've seen til now!

I wanna congratulate you for the incredible work and talent you put into it, which can be clearly seen in the marvelous result.
I understand why you wouldn't do a tutorial for it, but can I ask you a question: Where did you took the layout for the contents of the maps from (I mean the actual Hogwarts layout and the way the particular elements are set) ? Or was it all your own imagination? If not, would you be willing to share the source with me (and others HP fans) who would also want to try to do an own original replica?

Thanks for understanding and again Congratulation for the wonderful wonderful work!

That's awesome of you to say.

So the layout of the grounds comes from the JK Rowling sketch seen here:
[link]
As you can see i changed it up a little bit. As for the floor by floor, i just read the books and took notes on where things are mentioned. Luckily you can find all that information online now. Try the HP Lexicon or the HP Wiki. I took liberties on a few things and invented some others. For example the books NEVER mention what's on the 6th floor so i used that floor for some places that dont have a confirmed location.

If you make your own map let me know. I'd love to see it!

Thanks for replying! Since asking you that question I have actually discovered a neat page ([link]) with all kind of awesome Harry Potter movie/books props and have actually fell in love with the HP universe all over again :P I've already used some of the props to make a couple of "fake books" (Advanced Potion Making, Dark Arts Defence Beedle the Bart ) where I intend to store my HP DVD from now on (It will go very well with the new bookshelf I made especially for my HP books and DVD :) ). I'm also planing a small "Potion corner" (I have found some bottles I could use, but I am too poor to buy anything resembling a cauldron...to be honest I always use only stuff that I have around the house for these things).

Anyways, I might or might not make a Marauders Map...but for now I just don't have the right materials to do it. I've checked the sites you mentioned (which I actually have checked already, just forgotten about it...). BTW, thanks for the tip on the sixth floor ;) If I will make the map it will surely turn up unique and one-of-a-kind (just like yours :D )!

Btw, could you give me some advice on the paper you used (measurements, types, etc)?

Say you don't happen to have a scanned version of each page in HD? 'Cause if you do I give all my Da point for it (I know it's worth nothing but I don't have anything else... Or I draw you something? Or... or... Oh Please!!!! Please!!!!!!)
