I’m working on a drawing of city for a homebrew Pathfinder game tonight and I realized halfway through the process that you might like to see how I sometimes create larger, more complex maps.
There is a secret world at the bottom of coffee cups and in this case, cups of hot chocolate. Once it’s all dried and cracked, narrow streets and wide avenues appear that are just waiting to be defined.
Sometimes entropy shows urban areas in other ways, like it does in this cracking road sign I took a picture of at Disney in Florida a few years ago. Look for inspiration everywhere - you’ll find it.
