Example text

Some use more shading than others. Once you have mastered the basic mountain technique, try and practice drawing some mountains to resemble the examples shown. A map should keep the same mountain technique for uniformity’s sake, though I urge you to experiment and develop your own mountain types and forms. Certain mountain techniques work better than others depending on the tone of the map. Woods and Forests Drawing forests is a fun and interesting way of adding a lot of dimension to your map. Starting with a general area sketch, you will lay in a few trees here and there, first drawing the large groups of trees that will form the main parts of your major forests.

Holy cities may have cathedrals and temples. City Examples Small city River city Coastal city Castles and Holdfasts Placing castles and holdfasts is one of the most enjoyable things you can draw on a map. They are easy to draw and add plenty of character and clout to a fantasy map. Traditionally, castles are used for defending large stretches of territory, and are usually located on hills dominating the surrounding landscape. From its fortifications, defenders could observe an enemy army from the safety of its walls, and when the enemy passed them by to attack somewhere else, they could rush out and attack the enemy from the rear.

Hills are usually located next to or very near mountains, though they will often form their own distinct ranges as well. STEP 1: Add Your First Hill Next to the bottom of one of your mountains, take your HB pencil and draw a small upside-down U, about half or quarter the size of a mountain. STEP 2: Lay In More Hills After that, draw a few more upside-down U shapes along the mountain’s lower edges, and continue this all along the mountain range. STEP 3: Form Hill Ranges Once your hills at the bottom of the mountains are drawn in, feel free to draw more hills extending off of your existing hills.
