Learn to Create Illustrated Maps on Your iPad in Procreate
- First we’ll create a playful illustrated map marking a few destinations and roads in a city. I’ll show you some ways to decorate your map using drawings and stamps, plus some easy ways to add texture and variation to the composition. You could use this process to create a restaurant map, an art gallery map, or just mark your favorite places in a city.
- Next we’ll create a detailed drawing of a city’s streets, rivers, and major landmarks. We’ll use the structure of the city to create an abstract watercolor painting with bold pencil lines. Then we’ll remove the pencil lines to get a soft watercolor abstract view of the area.
- Last we’ll create a detailed road map inside the outline of a city’s perimeter. I’ll show you an easy trick for getting a complimentary color palette for your map, then we’ll use bold color to fill in sections of the city. We’ll add illustrations and text to highlight the city’s popular attractions, then add texture to give the map a real paper feel.
