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.

Wow. My favorite part is the texture and illusion of depth and space you created.

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
