Thanks for this. I draw maps often and always looking for new ways to create the images.

Cheers

Of course, how about cities and village icons. I wonder what the rough starting size for such a thing. Im amazed by the detail/precision/size relationship you are able to pull of, im reffering to your cartographer annual at profantasy ( just saw the walled city ).

This is wonderful! Trees/forests are, in my opinion, the most tedious part of drawing a map. This is a great collection of different styles.

thanks, yeah trees is a lot of work. Fortunately once you have a good bunch of them, you can copy them without making it too obvious... (if you draw digitally ofcourse :)

I need to make another go at a digital map. Thus far all of mine have been done by hand one way or another.

well... nothing beats a real handdrawn map (and yours are gorgeous), they just take soooo much time to make (at least for me :)

Thanks! And yes, they are time-consuming...especially the stinkin' trees.

I'm thinking maybe next time I'll try handdrawing certain areas, like the mountains, and then do the rest (trees, labels, etc.) digitally.

that may be a good way to go and save time while keeping the handdrawn feel to it. Just make sure you post it to dA when ready :)
