My name is Daniël Hasenbos, freelance cartographer living in Utrecht, the Netherlands. I want to share my creativity, to mapo a world that was not visible to others. That way people can venture into a world they could have never imagined. I believe that beautiful maps can bring a world to life in a way words alone can not.

My second class is online on Skillshare! In this class we take off where we left last time. I'll talk you through the entire process of drawing the terrain features of your fantasy map. We'll go over different styles for mountains and forests, as well as some rules to keep in mind when placing them.

Just like with my last class you can sign up via this link: skl.sh/2JQxNHL. You'll only pay $0,99 for your first three months of Premium membership on Skillshare and besides my two classes, you'll get access to +10.000 others!

What will you learn?

Mountain Styles: In this lesson I'll show a couple of different ways that you can draw mountains and we'll discuss how to decide which style suits your map. I'll show examples of mountains drawn in isometric style, from a ridgeline, and top-down mountains.

Drawing Mountains: We'll go over my process of drawing mountains on my maps. I'll share some of my ideas of what looks good and what doesn't.

Rivers: Now we'll take a look at your rivers. How do they flow, and how to you draw them? You'll also learn some basic rules to keep in mind when laying out your river systems.

Forest Styles: You'll learn a couple of ways of drawing forests. We'll also learn ways to show different kinds of forests: coniferous, deciduous and jungles and in different styles: single trees, grouped trees and top-down trees.

Drawing Forests: Now it's time to put your forests on your map. We'll discuss how to make the forests interact with the mountains and rivers, and also where they'll grow.

Terrain Features: Now that we've got all our terrain features in place it's time to show the terrain types in between them. In this lesson we'll add some texture to your grassland, desert, swampy and barren areas to help viewers understand what's what.

I'll see you there!

My first class is live on Skillshare! This class is the first of a series of classes in which I'll go over my entire process of drawing a Fantasy Map in Adobe Photoshop. The first part covers the process of drawing your coastlines, adding affects to them, and colouring your land and sea.

The greatest things about this though, is that if you sign up via this link: skl.sh/2INUNXa you'll only pay $0,99 for your first three months of Premium membership on Skillshare and besides my class, your get access to +10.000 others!

What Will You Learn?

• Drawing Coastlines: In this lesson we'll discuss what tools you can use to draw your coastlines. I'll show you how to make your coastlines look realistic by giving advice on what to do and what not to do.
• Coastal Effects: I'll go about a couple of ways to make your coastlines pop out by adding some effects to them. We'll use basic techniques to create an appealing effect and style to help viewers make out what's what.
• Land & Sea: We'll take a look at how to colour and texture your land and sea to create a solid base for your fantasy map. Again we'll be using basic Photoshop tools and techniques to get the desired results.

I hope to see you there!

Welcome to the steampunk-artists group, your steampunk stuff welcome, as with all groups it is essential that you read the rules and familarise yourself with the folders, we are very strict with submissions going into the right place and being of the right quality. Commercial offerings will be allowed but only into the correct folder and only when limited in number. We must draw your attention to the fact that anime and cartoon style submissions are strongly discouraged as this group is concerned with non-juvenile forms of art. Despite all the rules - please do enjoy submitting.

Hi Daniel! I was just wondering, what programs (and brushes?) do you use to make your maps? Your lines look very smooth and crisp, kind of like a real ink pen.

Wonderful work by the way! I really love your maps! :)

Hey Oseviel, I make my maps with Photoshop. I only use the basic round brush to make my maps. For the grungy effect of the ocean I use a brush from the 'Wet Media Brushes' set called 'Rough Ink'. I set that brush to 25% opacity with pressure sensitivity for opacity and 25% flow with airbrush effect turned on. Other that that everything is just the aforementioned round brush (: Hope it's any help (:

That helps a lot, thank you so much! If you don't mind me asking another question though, what resolutions do you work with?

That varies per map, and the required size. Maps for books are often A5 size. At 300dpi that is 1748x2480pixels. The maps that I post here are often 50% of the actual resolution. Sometimes 33% if the map is particularly large, or 66% when a map is already small.
