Map Drawing Tutorial 4: Towns and Urban Areas

Based on a request from a reader, we move back to the urban environment. This time focusing on a variety of roof types, and how they might be depicted in a map. A lot of fantasy cartographers limit themselves to the outlines of buildings when they draw maps for their towns, but I find that adding in roof lines creates a sense of depth and detail. I could easily add more detail regarding towns and urban environments, but for the moment this will do...the next few tutorials will move back to nature.

I might even get to sewers, catacombs and dungeons eventually.
