In this short and punchy guide I will show you, step by step, how to build your own ship map like the one below. I recorded the process (you will see snippets below) and it took me only eight minutes on my first attempt. And if I can do it, so can you!
Join me as I try and explain my cave-battle-map-drawing-method using actual English words. This is the first episode in my new, laid-back, “Let’s Draw” tutorial series, where I talk through how I go about drawing my battle maps. It’s been too long!
I’m rebooting my YouTube channel with this simple “Let’s Build” time lapse of my Harvest Horror paper figurines. This video’s main purpose was to test out my new filming setup, so please excuse its simplicity!
In this video I explain the foundational discipline of “flatting” and my personal method. It is an excellent practice that makes layer manipulation and color tweaking very simple in all stages of your coloring process.
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!
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!
Here is a quick demonstration on Roll20, showing the different layers in action:
This is the first set piece in my new series, which will be a collection of modular buildings with several compatible roof, basement, interior and exterior options, meaning you can construct a huge number of unique buildings from just a few pieces!
You can look forward to seeing an alchemist, general goods store, and plenty of housing options in the weeks to come.
I wanted to make a video demonstrating the new PDF map customization system, which quickly turned into a kind of start-to-finish guide. Basically, I show you how to download a map, customize and print it (or upload it to Roll20).
