View Full Version : Drawing Maps by Hand

08-01-2010, 11:33 AM
Some time ago I uploaded a map of a noble mansion I had drawn by hand. (can be found here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?10642-Palazzo-di-Valenea)) The question of where I got my inspiration came up, but unfortunately all my resources were German. Still I found the tutorial I used very helpful. Thinking it was a pity I couldn't share it with you I addressed the author and he gave me permission to translate it.

So here it is, a short summary of a workshop about Drawing Plans. For those who are not interested in the whole story but just the tricks and methods I added a handout at the end that basicly sums up the main points.

I hope it's as useful to you as it was to me :)

Thank you very much for sharing this!
I'm German too so I found the original version on his homepage :)

Yup his homepage is quite useful. And interesting, if you have a look at his work. Being German you might also want to have a look at this (http://www.weltenbastler.net/), unless you already know it. These were the first tutorials I found many years ago, and they are still helpful to some extent!

Thanks. Yes I already know that page.
Some things there are still useful. From my point of few the best thing is that everything is in german :) But here are much more tut's and if you understand them they are really great!!
