Belgariad and Malloreon Map by Crooty Belgariad and Malloreon Map by Crooty
At last! It's done! I took me over a year, duh. :omg:
I'm pretty glad I can finally move on to other stuff now, and I can say I'll never undertake something that big ever again!
:phew:

And yes I know the type is unreadable at this size. The original PS file is 1.3Gb (and takes ages to open, update, save) and the flattened .jpg at full resolution is 48Mb. Please send a note with your e-mail address if you want a personal copy and I'll send it with YouSendIt. A :+fav: would be much appreciated then. Thanks.

YAY! This map was part of the Terra Incognita exhibition at the SoHo Gallery for Digital Art in NYC from 16th to 29th July 2010. :dance:

YAY! A DD! :omg:
Thanks $Moonbeam13 and ^CreativeJenn! And also everyone who comments and :+fav:s.

Check out ~Gidde's beautiful version of the map too:

I haven't been on DA for years. Had to log in to fav and get a high res copy. Very nice Crotty! Now I know where to come look for some nice rendered fantasy maps.

This is beautiful. These are our family's favorite books. My wife has read them all, out loud, to us!
We would love a copy of this map. pianoweed@aol.com. I have a YouSendIt account.
Do you have a PayPal account so I can make a small donation?

Not sure if you ever sent me the map the last time I requested it - I only just found it again (I lost everything about two years ago to a house fire). If you can send it again I'd appreciate it - Markustay2012@Gmail.com - Thanx (and once again, fantastic job!)

Amazing job on that - congratulations on the DD. I've never read the book(s?) - thought from
the names they were some new re-discovered Tolkien manuscripts. I guess they must be great
books for you to spend so long on the maps :)

Actually they were among the first fantasy books I read in the late 90s and I loved them then.
When I re-read them 4 years ago to do this map, I didn't love them as much. A little too repetitive and predictable.

Ah, right... what was your motivation for spending all that time the map, then?

I don't read a lot of fantasy but my favourite books are Jack Vance's Dying Earth and Lyonesse series and Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun stuff.

Congratulations on the DD! I came to take a look at it, and recognized your screen name from years ago on the John Howe forums (I'm assuming you're the same person :D ). It's like stumbling on a long-lost relative. It's great to see how your art and photography has developed. All the best, and again, kudos on the well-deserved daily deviation!
