The title probably says enough, but I'll repeat the question:
How do you handdraw-mappers draw forests? Mine tend to look like wool on sticks, and I only ever seem to be able to draw leaf-tree ones, not needle/pine tree forest.
Here's a map that I drew recently, but I've not yet finished the forests. That's why they are light grey only. Also, I'd like input on how to do "burned out" forest. That is what the needly stuff close to the centre mountain is supposed to be.
After seeing the help sb else got on his dunes, I was hoping that I could enhance my drawing style with your tips.
Thanks in advance!
