Here's some great tutorials on hand-drawn fantasy maps:

A lot, maybe all, of this is applicable to maps of real-world locations though.

Those are fun just to look at. Reminds me of much younger days and the thrill of adventure stories and games with great maps!

Sounds unique for cartographers of all stripes and aspiring authors with idea's in their little heads such as "The Dead Island."   :lol:


"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."
