The Halfway Camp

The town is still a ways off. Ride into the dark, or risk a night in the wild?

How To Draw Trees (Pt.1/3)

The first and simplest way I draw common trees, the cross section approach, as seen in the Jungle Stream.

The Damp Mine Exterior

Today I drew a mine’s entrance battle map, well and truly ready for goblin occupation!

How To Draw Elevation

A guide to the three ways I draw elevation on my battle maps; ridges, slopes and cliffs.

Jake’s Table Top City (Part 1)

Jake thought up and funded much of the modular buildings set, and kindly sent me this write up of his city-in-progress. He’s got a lot of great tips and an excellent concept, and I’m itching to see the finished product!

How To Draw a Palm Tree

Welcome to the first episode of my new project! These “How To Draw” videos are made for Dungeon Masters or mapping enthusiasts who are curious about my method.

The Damp Mine

Mind your step in the damp tunnels of today’s battle map!

The Churning Sea

Take to the high sea with this rather stylized rendition of ocean waves!

The Rice Paddy

Today’s map makes a fine campsite or setting for a modular building.

The Pirate’s Cove

Where there is sea and trade, there are pirates, and where there are pirates, there’s a lair.

The Icy Battle Site

No one can change the shape of a battlefield quite like a magic user.

Now on Pinterest!

I’m stretching my wings a little and starting up a Pinterest page.

The Country Road

Finally, a decent place to build those buildings!

Our First Step Into Roll20

It’s been a long time in the making, but our first official Roll20 map pack just hit the Marketplace!

The Druid’s Burrow

Wild, mystical and mushroom-y, today’s semi-modular building is the Druid’s Burrow.

Speed Drawing the Little Library

Watch the time lapsed inking of the Little Library sketch while listening to me ramble about maps and future videos.

The Little Library

Today’s cosy library is another set piece for the modular buildings set, crammed with bookshelves and ready for construction on your city street.

David’s Map Printing Method

David’s been refining his printing process since our last gallery post and has sent me a new batch of gorgeous images.

The Grassy Path

Today’s map is just begging for a random encounter…

The Jungle Stream Battle Map

Crawling, buzzing, squawking, rustling. Hiding any kind of beastie in its overgrowth. Today’s map is the Jungle Stream.

The Schooner Battle Map

Built with Out of the Abyss and my oriental campaign in mind, The Schooner is something between a keelboat and a Chinese junk. Whatever she may be, this compact ship is ready for your campaign, Underdark or nay.

David’s Prints

David recently tweeted me his quality prints of the Blacksmith and Trusty Tavern, and I just had to share them here. Each map is printed at the store and glued to cardboard before being touched up with a black marker around the edges and reinforced with clear tape. If you like David’s style, he keeps a […]

The Trusty Tavern Battle Map (Redone!)

In many ways, the Trusty Tavern is the father of the modular buildings set, and it deserved to be reworked to match the other building’s color scheme. It also lacked a roof… But now it can be properly assembled alongside the other buildings!

Justin’s Game

Hi all! I’m finally beginning the Maps In Action gallery, a place where 2-Minute map users can show off their screenshots and photos and I can gain insight into how you are all using them. If YOU have any images of our maps in use, please send them my way! Justin from Guard Frequency has […]

The Alchemist Battle Map

A modular battle map for the alchemist’s store and house. The basement cauldron and garden are perfect for brewing all manner of potions and poisons.

The Tranquil Temple Battle Map

Paired with the cemetery, you can run an interesting Halloween-themed session with this map. After all, what cemetery is without its restless undead at this time of year?

The Cursed Oak Battle Map

Today I tried out something a little different. Not only by drawing a tree which, as anyone who has dabbled in art can tell you, is a trial by itself, but I also shifted the perspective quite drastically.

Speed Drawing The Blacksmith

I have quite a backlog of videos I want to produce, and this is the first. The over-the-shoulder-cam of The Blacksmith.

A New Printing Guide!

In all my recent adventures on reddit, I have found myself needing a concise printing guide not only to explain how it’s done, but to show off the customization options.

The Rustic Residence Battle Map

The second in the Modular Building series, the Rustic Residence. It is compatible with the Humble Home, Blacksmith and all future buildings from the series.

The Blacksmith Battle Map

Today’s battle map is The Blacksmith, a modular two-story building with an exterior workspace, interior shop, living area, and roofing. There’s even space for a basement!

The Abandoned Quarry Battle Map

The new episode of The Walking Dead inspired this one. Feel free to fill it with anything you want though, not just zombies!

Speed Drawing the Dragon’s Lair Burrow

Today I finish up the three-part Dragon’s Lair battle map set. Watch the shoulder-cam of the drawing, and the screencap of the painting (minus some corrupted footage, sadly). Enjoy!

The Dragon’s Lair Battle Map

For the first time on 2-Minute Table Top, a multi-part battle map. The Dragon’s Lair comes in three pieces, the bridge, entrance, and burrow, and altogether spans 12 pages / 552 squares / 2760 ft2.
