CA172 DrakkarThe April issue of the Cartographer’s Annual 2021 revisits and reworks an old classic, the Sailing Ships issue from 2009, making it into a full-fledged drawing style called “Ship Deckplans”.

Draw your own war galleys, longships, merchant traders or gun-bristling warships of the age of sail. The issue contains two example ships, a viking longship and a small merchant vessel, as well as a full mapping guide taking you through the creation of a ship deckplan.

The April issue is now available for all subscribers from their registration page. If you haven’t subscribed to the Annual 2021 yet, you can do so here.
