Has anyone out there converted this into .sut files for use in Manga Studio 5? I've tried to look up how to do it and it just makes my head hurt.

'fraid not. If you do figure out how to do it and make them, by all means, you may post them and give me the link to share from here.

HOWEVER, if you download my map tutorial, there's a map symbol font included, so you don't have to make them into brushes. :)

I do not, but if you download the image pack, you're welcome to make a Sai version, and you're also welcome to upload that Sai version to DeviantArt, just link back to this one, and give me the link to add to the comments for other Sai-users who might stumble on my brushes. :D

Here's a tutorial for making Sai brushes. SAI Tutorial - Custom Brushes by DarlingMionette

Looks like it's ripped right off Tolkien's books. And that is actually illegal: [link]

"Maps of Tolkien's world have been mostly removed from the Internet at the request of the Tolkien estate lawyers, even when the map is not made by Tolkien, and the map maker makes no money as is the usual case. Some maps may later be licensed by the Tolkien estate and back online."

Thanks for your concern, but I hand drew all of them in Photoshop. I honestly think cleaning up scans of Tolkien's tiny maps from the books would have taken more time than just drawing triangles in Photoshop. I'll take it as a compliment that you think they're similar to his work, but I didn't even look at my LotR maps when I drew them so any similarities are very much coincidence. I can only assume you didn't actually look closely at one of his maps before accusing me. I pulled out a book to have a look. The Middle Earth map in the Fellowship of the Ring has lines much heavier than mine, and there's significantly less detail. It's obvious they were drawn with ink and pen.

If you compare the image pack to an actual map of Middle Earth rather than the memory of a map of Middle Earth, you'll see that Tolkien trends towards the left side of his mountains being almost completely filled in, and the line on the right is fairly thick; the shading has blobs that indicate the original inkwork. There are only occasional diagonal lines indicating shading in the mountains. My lines are far finer, and if you zoom in you'll see on a few of the mountains the dead giveaway that I was using Photoshop: there are places where I was drawing white on black; you can see it on a few of the mountains on this map near the bottom if you click and zoom in.

The Tolkien Estate definitely doesn't have a copyright on hand drawn mountains, that would put quite a few other fantasy novels out of business, I wager. Pern has maps of this style, as does Narnia, for a couple of well known examples... this map style is pretty much standard for the fantasy cartography genre and understandably there's only so many ways one can draw mountains in black and white: they're just jagged triangles.

Cheers.
