As a form of NYC subway therapy, I decided to try to for a new approach/style for the forests. I had been working on for the Seven cities map. It was my first foray into creating maps on my iPad 2018. I was using Procreate and it didn’t have the number of layers to do a full map, so I decided to just do the forests in isolation.
I decided that Procreate is good for smaller projects. On the iPad 2018 with not a lot of computing power, Procreate cannot produce the number of layers I need for a full scale map. Perhaps when I get better, I won’t need that many layers.
It took me more than 10 hours (a full week!) of shading in the tree ruffles.
