    Map Symbols

    Daendyr19

      Hello everyone! I have a question concerning the symbols on map. You see, I'm making a world map in Photoshop (atlas style), and I am wondering what to use as map symbols (for city sizes and such). So I settled for the standard ones (image below), but I have no idea how to make these, or how to start making these.

       

       

      Should I use the brush tool, or perhaps the custom shape tool (and can someone tell me the difference between those two?), or something entirely else? Thanks.

       

       

      P.S. Please don't say: "Why don't you just copy the icons?", because they are kind of low-res and I really want to learn this myself.
