Hey guys, I'm back once again and with my return I bring with me a tutorial that is sort of odd, but not really. To switch things up bit I will be showing you "how to draw a plateau", step by step. I used to ask myself what a plateau actually was because I used to hear that word used in conversations. A while ago I found out that a plateau is a landform that is elevated thousands of feet above surrounding foundation. For example, say your in the Colorado Rockies and you come across this massive landform that is fourteen hundred feet up in the air and the at the very top it is level surface but then slopes downward. That is a plateau. Some popular plateaus around the world span thousands of miles, and can actually be formed by lava from millions of years ago. Here in the United States, the Colorado Plateau has a one hundred thirty thousand square mile area span which spreads across parts of Utah, Arizona, the Northwestern parts of New Mexico, and the western parts of Colorado. The biggest plateau in the world is actually located in Tibet, and it's called the Tibetan Plateau. It's elevation is more than sixteen thousand feet, and it's span is an amazing eight hundred eighty eight thousand square miles. Wow, now that is a massive site. I have never personally seen a plateau, but hopefully I will get the chance to see such a site sometime in my life. Drawing a plateau shouldn't be that difficult. The best part to this lesson is that you can tweak your level or slopping ground as you like. I will return with more drawing fun so stay tuned in to see what's next. Peace out and enjoy!
