Roadside Battle Map Tiles Video Thumbnail NEW

Speed Drawing some Roadside map tiles (Pt.2)

Here you can watch me paint and tweak the Roadside Rise & Wilderness battle map tiles, a time-consuming process sped up 1000-3000x for your viewing pleasure!

My Painting Process

This is my commentary on how I color my battle maps using Gimp, a free alternative to Photoshop. I focus mostly on the ever-important skill of layer management, and ramble a little about color theory too.

How To Draw Grass

Drawing grass from a top-down perspective takes a little thought to avoid a blank sheet of paper, or a time-consuming mess of hatches. This guide falls somewhere in the middle – a happy medium, if you will!

How To Draw Rubble

How to fill your map with difficult terrain and annoy your players!

How To Draw Trees (Pt.1/3)

The first and simplest way I draw common trees, the cross section approach, as seen in the Jungle Stream.

How To Draw Elevation

A guide to the three ways I draw elevation on my battle maps; ridges, slopes and cliffs.

How To Draw a Palm Tree

Welcome to the first episode of my new project! These “How To Draw” videos are made for Dungeon Masters or mapping enthusiasts who are curious about my method.

Speed Drawing the Little Library

Watch the time lapsed inking of the Little Library sketch while listening to me ramble about maps and future videos.

Speed Drawing The Blacksmith

I have quite a backlog of videos I want to produce, and this is the first. The over-the-shoulder-cam of The Blacksmith.

Speed Drawing the Dragon’s Lair Burrow

Today I finish up the three-part Dragon’s Lair battle map set. Watch the shoulder-cam of the drawing, and the screencap of the painting (minus some corrupted footage, sadly). Enjoy!

Speed Drawing The Dragon’s Lair Bridge

Dragon’s just can’t resist dwarvish architecture, and this bridge is no exception. The red dragon has really made it its own, carving in its signature crumbling gouges and jagged claw marks.

Speed Drawing the Brackish Marsh

Marshes come in so many color schemes that I just couldn’t decide… So I defaulted to the autumnal palette, since that is the current season in the campaign I run. We’ll see if I even get to use it!

Speed Drawing the Hallowed Hall

This one shows the 2.5 hour painting of the Hallowed Hall battle map, condensed into a short and sweet 5-ish minutes. Later this week, I want to print (in color this time!) and assemble this map on video, as I did the Humble Home. It was a lot of fun and very well received last time, […]

Speed Draw: A Humble Home

In this video I ramble over a speed drawing of the Humble Home set piece. I’m just getting the hang of things before I do a start-to-finish video, assembly guide and other fun stuff.
