    2. This was a good step by step guide for creating a nice and detailed map, whether for a fantasy book series or an rpg. It was also a quick read because it is around 80% images.

    3. You don't even need to be an artist to create amazing fantasy maps. This book will take you through the process, step-by-step. I use it to create maps for the fantasy stories I write.

    4. An excellent resource, but perhaps assumes a little more natural talent than most people have.

    7. One of the better art books I've read; it actually lives up to the title. After reading it, I think my game maps and so forth will indeed be higher quality than before.

    8. Bottom Line Up FrontA great introductory how-to for drawing overland maps. It's just the basics, but that's all you need to get started.

The tutorials in the book are organized into chapters, ostensibly in the order you'd draw them on a map.The book is a nicely presented softcover with every page in full colour. There are many excellent illustrations throu [...]

    9. This exquisitely beautiful book was lacking in substance to me when it came to its utility as an educational tool. Like many "how-to" books, it showcases both the unique talents and style of a gifted artist, but comes up short when it comes to breadth of technique. I was looking for a more advanced fantasy cartography tutorial that communicated a wider variety of techniques and cartographic options, and situated this kind of art a little more closely with the history of the art. The author's map [...]

    10. Less "how to draw fantasy and rpg maps" and more "how to draw two fantasy rpg maps exactly as I drew them." In other words, less of a tutorial than a walkthrough.

    11. Looks fantastic and gives some solid "how to draw " advice. It is nearly worthless in terms of real cartography, though, so you'll learn how to draw pretty maps but you won't really learn anything about how/where/why in terms of locating topographical features (there are reasons that swamps, prairies, and so on form where they do. But to be fair, the title is "How to draw" and it does deliver on that.

    12. K says only 4 stars, but he's happily making a new map now, so it's a 5 in my book. ;)
