People love to hike and go out of their way just to see waterfalls. Which makes them a really interesting feature to add to your maps. Here are some steps showing how I draw waterfalls.
1: Draw some simple shapes to define the shape and height of the waterfall and the pool at the bottom.
2: Sketch mountains around it to help define the landscape.
3: Begin refining your sketch by adding some details to the mountains and the cliffs. Remember water will have eroded a somewhat round shape into the surrounding rock.
4: Define the shape of the falls, river, and pool by making the shores more random. Try to make the base of the waterfall slightly wider than the top. And as this is in an isometric perspective, have the mountains obscure sections of the river. It will help sell depth and create visual interest.
5: The main thing to keep in mind is the detail lines in the water should convey movement. Note though that this doesn't mean you should just draw straight lines. Look at some pictures of flowing water for inspiration and see the flow of shapes in moving water. At the base of the waterfall you will want to use more rounded shapes as if you're drawing clouds.
6: As the water is rather detailed now, I felt it appropriate to add further detail lines to the mountains and cliffs.
7. Block in simple color for the river and shadows on the mountains.
8: Deepen the shadows and use your line work as a guide. Really think of it as a three dimensional scene and imagine where light would be hitting.
9: Add highlights on the mountains where light will hit. And add some on the opposite side of the line art where you added shadows in the water.

On the days you peer into your screen and all you see are other people's peak experiences that highlight your lack in that moment, remember that life isn't about the story you tell about yourself on the internet. It's about using what you've been given to craft a life of gratitude and passion and grace. Remember that the very best things in life cannot be captured in status updates. Be gentle with yourself my friends and do more of what makes you look at your phone less. 💜 Photo by @meghanmaloneyphotography via @hobbitontours
