    Hi, I am a grade 4 teacher is Alberta, Canada. I am using a lot of RPG elements this year to spice up my Language Arts and Social Studies. I am currently gearing up to start a cartography unit dispersed throughout Art and SS. The aim is to start out in fantasy so we can add a level of depth to the RPG adventure stories we are currently working through. The end game though, is to teach them mapping skills and have them create their own maps of the Regions of Alberta.
    I just stumbled onto this video and wanted to thank you. It is such a great guide and I already feel more confident in teaching this to my students. I can’t wait to spend time working my way through the rest of your material!

      @CoolSpaceMonkeyWithCigar That works, too! Actual geology class though? Not really, that was more like "Memorize these states for the test. Africa is hotter than Europe because the sun hits it harder. Now draw a dumbed down version of Germany like you want to use it as a Minecraft-skin." And then someone actually got a bad grade because they added too much detail.

    A tip for drawing rivers: rivers can converge (come together) but they won't diverge (split apart). When making rivers, make sure not to diverge your rivers. Most people looking at the map will realize that something about the rivers seems a bit off even if they don't know why it seems off.
    Also, because water is governed by gravity, they usually start somewhere at high elevation (mountains, hills) and move toward low areas (marshes, lakes, ocean).

      ​@Reise M. Lukas They can, but those are at flood plains, and once a river becomes a river delta it's sort of no longer a river (it is and it isn't). Whole rivers still won't split into separate rivers because water flows down to the lowest point with gravity and gravity doesn't go off in different directions.
      Rivers can change course over time though. So if a section of the river gets gouged out (from perhaps a flood exerting more pressure on a river bank than usual), the river might expand in that direction, especially if it also gouges out the river bed over there. The river might then head off in that direction a bit, which is how rivers change course, but it won't diverge into two separate rivers because the point where it starts to split just gets "eaten up" by the rest pf the river.

      Although what you say is completely true he didn't draw diverging rivers. At 3:00 it's showing a river delta and at 3:23 a river ending at the coastline.

    J.R.R.Tolkien didn't draw the middle earth map's (or rather, the ones he did draw were rubbish apparently). All the famous/published middle earth maps were actually drawn by his son Christopher Tolkien, after listening to his fathers stories growing up.

      He did a lot of rough sketches of maps that were never intended to be a final product - just sort of laying out the general shape of the world and the key locations while he was working on the story. It was less common to include maps in stories in those days, so to Tolkien they were largely storytelling guides and ways to keep his story straight - something which Christopher was apparently VERY strict on as a child! I remember reading somewhere about how Tolkien used to tell early versions of the stories to Christopher and his brother, and whenever a small detail changed, Christopher would interrupt and say "but LAST time you said...", and Tolkien would make a note of it. Eventually, Christopher was put in charge of reconciling the various iterations of the maps into finalised versions.
      JRR's original illustrations survive in many different editions of the books, and from the map in The Hobbit it's clear that he was fully capable of drawing beautiful maps, but they were just less of a concern to him than the writing and the linguistics. Plus he kept changing his mind, so getting Christopher, who had been with the books all throughout their shaping, to complete the finalised versions made perfect sense.

    Holy cow I wish I had come across this video sooner. One day I'm hoping to write my own novel, but I've always struggled with the world-building part, and I feel like having a map is also very nice for your audience to give them an idea of how your world looks. I've sadly never been too good at drawing, but the icon style at the start is something that even I can do!

    My only little quibble with the Icon style map was the swamps, TBH it looked like plains to me. I might have used cat tails or similar simple but iconic swamp flora for that instead (albeit you could run into issues with the trees then, definitely something to think about). Otherwise it was pretty fantastic.

    I like adding color to my maps with colored pencils. You can add two tones of brown for the mountains with one dark and one light to give contrast. Also using pastels work with covering large areas but you need to spray it with workable fixative to prevent the color from smudging.

    • Steven Seufert

      I'm not an artist so this is off the top of my head. Half of the buildings will all look the same: they have a horizontal line where the ground is and vertical lines for walls. Since they're just icons, they need to remain simple. So where you can get more unique (besides width and height of the buildings) is the roof. This leads me to think the area to focus on is the roof/top part of the building icon. For example, traditional Japanese buildings had those roofs that are curved inward. For some areas of the middle east, you could have roofs that are pointed bulbs. Keep in mind that houses would have different roofs than what I'm mentioning here. So these are for maybe a city icon, and if you wanted a small town maybe draw a house instead. I would recommend Googling traditional buildings from an area and try to stick to general shapes since a map icon wouldn't be overly detailed.

      Hmm. Maybe check out the city making map? Otherwise I do think the same lesson applies, you'll just have to do some extra work on figuring out how to draw icons that work for you. Maybe instead of little medieval towns you could draw sky scrapers? Instead of trees there are oil pumps. Or there are asteroid craters and moon dome habitats. Just remember to keep it simple, like what's the most basic symbol that can represent those things. Fill up the map with several different icons/symbols and I promise it'll look cool!

    Hi, thanks for your sharings..
    I think that one of the major keys here is to go S L O W.
    Yeah, the speeded up vid gives the impression that this is fast drawn, but don't be fooled like I was (I watched this silently so maybe it's said in the comments)
    When you t a k e y o u r t i m e, then all the things get more cohesion repeatability and this fits together.
    But even a pro like JP is making this with patience as the real speed videos shows.
    That was a huge key for me.
    Thanks JP for your word.
