Here's why you need to watch #TheDragonPrince

When I heard that Aaron Ehasz, one of the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender—my favourite show of all time, was making another anime, I knew I could expect great things.  If its first season is anything to go on, The Dragon Prince will surely occupy…

My final tutorial on how to make a fantasy map in #AffinityDesigner @AffinityBySerif

If you’ve been following along with these tutorials then you’ve now made a perfectly decent fantasy map.  Over the course of this series we’ve drawn coastlines, mountains, rivers, forests, and settlements.  The only thing that remains is to mark your…

This is how you add settlements to your fantasy map.

Now that the geography of your map is essentially done, you’re finally ready to add a human element to your world (that or elf, dwarf, or whatever your world’s peoples are).  This is going to be rather easy, actually.  All that’s required is that you can…

I've written a tutorial on how to add forests to your fantasy map in @AffinityBySerif. #AffinityDesigner

With our coastlines, lakes, mountains, and rivers done, we’ve nearly finished the basic geography of our map.  The most important thing that remains, however, is to draw the forests.  If your map is the classic Medieval fantasy setting, your world will…

Here's how to make a fantasy map in @AffinityBySerif. #affinityDesigner

Now that we’ve drawn a continent with mountains, it’s time to give it some rivers.  But before we begin I’d like to mention that there’s a fantastic book on the subject of drawing fantasy maps.  It’s called How to Draw Fantasy Art and RPG Maps by Jared…

If you're writing a fantasy novel, you'll very likely need a map. In this tutorial I will walk you through drawing the mountains.

Last time in this tutorial series I talked about how to make coastlines for a fantasy map.  The next step is to draw some mountain ranges, which will likely shape much about your world moving forward.

I've written a tutorial on how to make a realistic coastline in #AffinityDesigner.

It is time to begin this tutorial on how you can make a fantasy map for your book (or whatever your purpose is).  In case you didn’t read my introduction, my focus will be on the technical side of things rather than on tectonic plates or how various…

This is the introduction to a series of articles about how to make a fantasy map using vector tools. #AffinityDesigner

If you’re writing a fantasy novel set in another world then chances are you’ll need a map—plain and simple.  Some people have tried writing such a story without a map, and this usually results in the author having no idea where anything is.  It can,…
