STEP 1. You will start this tutorial step by drawing a perfect square, and then add the two guidelines like so.   STEP 2. Now you will begin drawing out the edging of the map. To make the map look tattered, or warn, all you have to do is draw a few notches or tears along the sides like so. Once that is done, add boarding lines to add a frame, and then draw three circle shapes with the one in the center larger then them all.   STEP 3. The next thing you will be doing is sketching out the shape of the island in the form of a skull. The lining should be rocky or squiggly looking. Draw in the eye holes, and then draw the few teeth like you see here. Add some cracks on the top of the head shape, and then begin sketching out the surrounding islands off to the sides. You will also need to draw out the silhouette of the pirate ship, followed by the head shape of the giant squid and it's tentacles. After that, just add some detailing like you see here.   STEP 4. You are almost done with this lesson, and as you can see, all you need to do is sketch in some water ripples which are scattered around the map, and then draw the mountain shapes on the skull island, as well as the hole for the skulls nose. Next and lastly, draw the rest of the island shapes which have palm trees on them, and then add more detailing on the maps surface. Don't forget to add the "X marks the spot"!   STEP 5. For your last drawing step, all you need to do is lightly add the dotted lines that makes this map look like a map. Before you draw in the light colored dotted lines, you will need to erase any guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. In the end, you should have a map that looks just like the one you see here. Color it in, and you are all done. I hope you liked this tutorial that showed you how easy it was to draw a map, step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
