Minduriel and the Dragon by Sapiento Minduriel and the Dragon by Sapiento
Done for the monthly map challenge at www.cartographersguild.com.

This map depicts an Elvish hero's tale using a quasi-Japanese style; for the labels I used a Tengwar font.

No, it should be some variant of Elvish language.

Amazing idea and awesome picture. I only disagree with the use of tengwar.
To have the best result you should use the Sarati instead of the Tengwar font
look for Sarati Eldamar font
If you want I can write for you some words
