So I've been stuck the last two days trying to figure out how to hand-draw forests into my most recent map. I have a technique already, however, for this map I want to branch out with my forests. There are going to be tropical jungles in the lower portion of the map along coast lines. There will be a large coniferous pine forest in the upper portion, very reminiscent of the taiga forests in Russia and north america.

Any ideas and suggestions of different art styles and symbolism for these various woodlands would be appreciated
