More pics of Thorin's map - now with Bilbo's portrait

This map was hand-drawn using pics of the Weta replica as reference, using pens of differing nib sizes. I then scanned the drawing in high resolution at 600dpi and printed it onto 200gsm textured watercolor paper. This is then weathered with coffee and tea; the folds and creases are added subsequently. The final step is hand-writing the moon runes using UV ink.
