Storefronts for The Clove, a Town Center by Built4ever Storefronts for The Clove, a Town Center by Built4ever
This is a single sheet, 8 and half by 11, of hand-drawn sketches for the town I am designing for "Second Life." I draw it in scale 1/16" = one foot on white vellum over graph paper. A 3D model is already in progress, fully detailed and full color and texture.

Hello, I loved that plane. This year I decided to make some of the houses. Here is the result:

Love it. Nice work. Maybe you'll get a commission or two next year for gingerbread houses! I put your name on the deviation, hope you're okay with that...

Just out of curiosity, do you mean 'Second Life' as in the online computer game?

I absolutely adore seeing your designs, and it makes me want to get into architecture as a side interest to help me with designing 3d worlds and how things would work. Does it ever bother you when you see animated movies or comics if you read them, that don't seem to apply any rhyme or reason to their buildings?

Well, animators are good at making cartoon people and animals come to life, NOT designing architecture. Yes, Second Life online game.

Right! I imagine animators don't often go for realism, tending more towards the feeling behind things. It's just something I've wondered about. I know some people who ride horses get really frustrated at movies or books when the horses aren't spoken about or ridden right. I didn't know if the same applies to architects or not.

EHHH not so much. Disney of course does a rather good job with architecture.

by the way did you design this?

:iconbuilt4ever:
Built4ever Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012
Of course! I design and illustrate everything in my galleries. This is designed as if it could be a real building, but the project is for "Second Life," so it's being modeled in 3D.

why not just 1/4 on an 18x18?

One quarter scale??? Terrible scale to develop ideas in!! I stopped that lunacy a long time ago. Quarter inch scale is for final floor plans, but I also use it for interior elevations at the sketch stage. Draw small, draw quick, look at the big picture of visual harmony, balance, proportion, etc. Don't EVER worry about the piers being 7 inches or 8 inches wide, that will be settled at the lumber yard after all the plans are drawn, and the plans will have to be changed yet again because the lumber dimensions are not available.

Also, small drawings go into binders, easy to label and find stuff, and, of course, very easy to scan into the computer and go crazy with software!

wow you have it good, I have to make my stuff in quarter scale they're all axons and floor plans though
i just thought twas a small paper i like my drawings big but that makes sense, you fit them in your binder :D Of course i'm only first year architecture so they're making my life hard on purpose -_-"
and that's beautiful I see some 9 square grid in there :P
are you making the model with the lasers and 3D printers or do you have to make it by hand?
Reply
:iconbuilt4ever:
Built4ever Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012
Oh no just on the computer! I'd like to see a laser try to cut out one of my more complicated houses he he ...but when you begin to lay out a floor plan, how do you rough it out? What kind of buildings are you designing?

That's cool so do you work as an architect or are you a student?
I design whatever comes to mind apparently my designs are "different" and "weird" but i've been told that's really good :)
not all of em though sometimes they're just what the teacher wants
have you read the fountainhead?
and what do you mean rough it out?
and lol the 3D printer might help with bizzare designs :P

Built4ever Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012
I do design work and light renovation work. Design and build. Self-taught. I read SOME of the Fountainhead. Rough out means first sketch ideas, first drafts, rough, lots of erasing, changing things. I suppose you draw the whole plan on the computer probably from first ideas?

:iconh3llok66aren99:
H3LLoK66aren99 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No i draw it all by hand
the ideas go on trash paper and then i transfer them to trace where i just scan, edit, and print beautiful colored plans that way no erasing or anything just crumpling up and throwing away trash paper
computer is only for 3D models and that's for almost graduating students
and meow nobody but me seems to like the fountainhead :P
and that's cool I have plenty of designs from before i was in college

OHHH okay, just yellow trash paper re-traced over and over, that's great, that's what I was wondering. The architect's choice! Trash paper! One step away from calling it toilet paper!

I wish my eyes were that good to draw at 1/16" scale! I struggle at 1/8" scale.

And I, in turn, struggle at those precious mortise and tenon joints which have to be oh-so precise to be any good at all. My eyes really ain't too good, honestly, and I'm heavily one-eye dominant, so I like to tell people that I have the depth perception of a cyclops.

Yes.. Tenons are the easy part.. It's the mortises I struggle with..
And I have a pair of reading glasses semi permanently perched on the end of my nose. I've been told I look like a wizend professor..

Back to those razor sharp chisels, 'cept mine ain't razor sharp. Looking like a professor is good. You have a tweed jacket right?

My chisels aren't as sharp as they should be..

I have three tweed jackets I got from my grandfather. They are a little tight on me.
