Natural mapping can be a hard skill to grasp. Often you'll find your areas looking a bit bland and empty or over-detailed and getting the right balance while still making the maps interesting can be annoying. Let me share a few tips and tricks I've learned over the years!
A quick round-up of what you'll find in this video:
- How to make more natural lines (trees, cliffs, water)
- How to decorate your areas so that they're interesting but not overly decorated
