STEP 1. Start your first step by drawing a sloping rocky side that has some grooves or rocky layers. This should be done on one side of your drawing surface, for me I chose the right side.   STEP 2. Next, we will work on getting the background drawn out. As you can see there is mountains, rock sculptures, and uneven ground that needs to be drawn to make the scenery look rugged.   STEP 3. Draw in all the detailing lines that will add texture to all the rocks like so, then off in the distance draw in some thorn like brush or bushes. As you know living in climates with harsh conditions makes vegetation scarce.   STEP 4. Draw in the actual rock like mountain or plateau like you see here. Now you can choose to make your plateau larger, wider, or even higher if you like. Once the shape and design of your plateau is drawn you can add the detailing to the surface.   STEP 5. Let's draw in another rock formation that seems to have an unstable appearance to the top. As you can see the rock that I drew has a flared bottom as it thins or narrows out at the top. It also comes to its narrowest point before a platform is formed at the top.   STEP 6. Draw in the rugged background before leaving this step, and be sure to add what you like so you can erase he mistakes. The finished drawing will be fun to color in.   STEP 7. Here is your new drawing of a plateau. I hope you liked this lesson, and I also hope you find a use for this type of background or even foreground.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
