Learn to Create Illustrated Maps on Your iPad in Procreate

Learn to Create Illustrated Maps on Your iPad in Procreate
I absolutely love creating hand drawn maps.  They are perfect for commemorating a trip, making for friends and family, or for making an ad for a local event like an art gallery walk or local food spots.  I wanted to finally share my process for creating these maps, plus give you the brushes, textures, and stamps I like to use to create mine. In the class, you’ll learn three different methods for creating illustrated maps on your iPad in Procreate.  When you take the class you’ll get all of the brushes I made to create my maps as free downloads, including texture brushes and a set of illustrated location marker stamps. We’ll create 3 different projects in the class:
  • First we’ll create a playful illustrated map marking a few destinations and roads in a city.  I’ll show you some ways to decorate your map using drawings and stamps, plus some easy ways to add texture and variation to the composition.  You could use this process to create a restaurant map, an art gallery map, or just mark your favorite places in a city.
  • Next we’ll create a detailed drawing of a city’s streets, rivers, and major landmarks.  We’ll use the structure of the city to create an abstract watercolor painting with bold pencil lines.  Then we’ll remove the pencil lines to get a soft watercolor abstract view of the area.
  • Last we’ll create a detailed road map inside the outline of a city’s perimeter.  I’ll show you an easy trick for getting a complimentary color palette for your map, then we’ll use bold color to fill in sections of the city. We’ll add illustrations and text to highlight the city’s popular attractions, then add texture to give the map a real paper feel.
You can use the processes you learn in this class to create gifts for friends and family, or you could create digital downloads or printable images for your business. The great thing about this process is that you can adjust the drawing for your skill level.  So if you’re new to drawing and don’t know where to start, this is a great class for you because I’ll show you tons of easy tracing tips for getting started, but if you’ve been drawing for a long time you can really use your illustration skills to create a highly detailed and eye-catching map.   All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
