This is a star wars galaxy map i found. I have inkarnate but i dont think its possible to make a galaxy map like this on it.If anyone knows of any tutorials that could help me make something like this i'd appareciate it.

Edit: I actually figured it out on my own. Apparently you can just use inkarnate.Thanks to all those who commented.

  • $\begingroup$ The lines on the map are trade routes. This look basically like an subway/underground map on a spacy background. Try metromapmaker.com $\endgroup$

There's nothing wrong with drawing the starry heavens that inhabit your imagination on a piece of paper, you know!

enter image description here


I think the lines you see on that map are "trade routes" but even if they are something else, they remind me of an underground/subway map with systems as stations. All framed on a space gas background.

There is a free tool you can use to draw these kinds of subway maps. I'm guessing there are others but you might start with: https://metromapmaker.com/
