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.
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!
So the layout of the grounds comes from the JK Rowling sketch seen here:
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!
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 )!
Btw, could you give me some advice on the paper you used (measurements, types, etc)?
PD: Juro solennemente que mis intenciones no son buenas. Es broma, es broma . Travesura realizada
and dobby just to prove hes not dead and the best one of all bellatrix, volders and neville... oh and dumbledore xx
exactly like i'd imagine it in the books, all the locations.
I love it!
My tiny prototype worked but I don't even know if I'll be able to make the full-sized one x_x
Your map is awesome, I hope mine turns out half as good!
Sorry to disturb you with all that information you probably don't care about >_>
Yeah, it's fun so far.
Ahaha, that's clever, making it part of it. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the new one.
My friends and I are going to an anime convention dressed as the Marauders (and Lily, but whatever) just so we can use our Harry Potter merchandise. Now I'm making one of these for us.
Might you mind telling me how you did the folding?
But this is just...WOW! Awesome job!
Excellent, excellent work! This must have taken a lot of time and patience to make.
