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!
