Drawing Mountains From A Birds-Eye-View

Top-down Mountains

Step 1

Start by drawing the ridgeline of your mountain range, this should be fairly jagged but you can draw a softer ridgeline if you’d prefer. You should also include some lines branching off from your main mountain line.

Step 2

Draw in some more, thinner lines branching off from your range, and, ridgelines.

Step 3

Draw in some more lines branching off from the lines you drew in step 2. Your mountain range should kind of look like veins in their structure.

Step 4

Finally, draw in small lines along some of the ridgelines you have previously drawn in. These are to add detail to your mountain range.
