    Help Jungles?

    So, I've a question for ye fellows. How does one go about drawing a jungle for a mostly handdrawn, Tolkien-esque map, like the one attached?

    The closest I've seen so far is this: http://www.cartographersguild.com//a...4&d=1223341945

    But I just don't know how well it will fit with the rest of the map.

    Have you looked for anything like a palm tree symbol (or something similar) to base it off of? Maybe check some of the Profantasy symbol sets for some inspiration.

    Well, after some trial-and-error, I'm using this for now. It works, I believe, and mostly at this point I'm trying to rough out a map for a story setting while I come up with races and such that should live in certain climates. In short, doing some worldbuilding for now.

    Now, another question. Where would one believe marshes and the like to appear? I always, always, ALWAYS have trouble with those damned marshes. Which is weird, since I live in Florida. You'd think I'd have enough hands-on experience to be able to place them. Well, I'm north Florida, so maybe not.

    Thanks for the help in advance.
