how to draw a Map  step-by-step

Start the map outline with a curved line and spirals on each end, resembling a rolled scroll.

Draw parallel lines above and within each spiral, creating the rolled sides of the cartoon map.

Draw a long line connecting the edges of the map at the top. Draw curved lines in the spirals to further detail the paper there.

Draw long parallel lines on the map with a partial circle in the lower corner to create a compass rose.

Create a compass rose with inner and outer circles, four labeled triangles, and squiggly lines for land masses.

Draw overlapping "V" shaped mountains with texture on the edge of the map.

Draw a moai and a ship with curved lines and a rectangle sail, adding "V" shaped waves to the water.

Draw a forest and bridge on the map with curved lines for the canopy and rectangle and short lines for the bridge details.

Draw a dotted line from the ship to the bay's other side and mark with an "X".
