TownTavern and Three shops by Built4ever TownTavern and Three shops by Built4ever
Pencil sketch of some storefronts for my village center. I borrowed the building on the right from my "Unusual Houses" sketch page, and drew some storefronts in mild angled perspective from some old sketches of my own, based loosely on Dutch, English, and other town types.

"Three Small Shops" remind me of the shops here in Jackson and Sutter Creek. (California)

Why do I love this so much? I don't know. But it's completely awesome. The details are so... Perfect? I don't know, it's just great.

If you look to the Main Street, its like every american town has a street with shops that looks like that. Didnt mean to mock btw, I find Main Street quite iconic.

A lovely compilation! Pleasing composition with the large Tavern right and the fade away tree on the left.

Hey LC longtime no see. How's the new job situation? ... Yes, it's a bit odd to put three small "tallish" storefronts in one clump with space on either side and a long lower building next door. Normally, I would put those kinds of storefronts 10 or 12 together.

Perhaps not - but the sketch is popular I think because the balance is still there in the picture! (grin) and city planners sometimes DO just that...anyway. I love pencil daughtsmanship.

Yes, it sure is. I can never tell what people will like. It's also rather unique in my gallery I suppose. Nothing else like it really. I'll do another. I love pencil stuff. It's where everything good starts. I like to see that beautiful image emerge like ghost.

Well, it's a pretty old adventure game, obviously a point-and-click one. You're playing as a lawyer woman named Kate Walker who're supposed to find the heir of an old factory, which previous owner just have died. And the first place you are at in the game look a lot like this. even though, I recommend it!

I like over-the-top Victorian eclectic, but gingerbread porches and all-wooden houses covered with jazzy trim is a maintenance nightmare. Believe it or not, I'm doing some designs for Southern-influenced houses right now with big porches that are closer to Q.A., but I'm drawing brick exteriors with SOME wood, slate or tile roofs, and other more durable materials.

You too? I just got an offer to put a piece of art on the cover of a novel. (Maybe I'm speaking to fast!!!) But we seem to be moving forward. This one based on Charleston, and I had watercolors of Charleston.... (He looks around slowly. Then he opens up his trench coat and says in a low gravelly voice: "Hey man, do you need a novel cover?") What's yer plot in a nutshell and location?

My brother and I are working on it together, and haven't nailed down an exact location. A kingdom/empire, either medieval times, or a futuristic post apocalyptic world. Lots of villages. Farming. Trade and barter has become a way of life. The current government/noble class control all the wealth through an extremely socialistic welfare system. As long as the commoners play along, they get their handouts. They've been playing along for so long most don't realize they're only one small step above slaves. Enter our main character (think V for Vendetta type of character). An entertainer of sorts, who through his act, begins to subliminally plant the seeds of rebellion. Ideas of hope and self sufficiency. He has his own personal reasons for wanting to overthrow the current government but you don't find that out until much later. NO ONE is going to attribute the rebellion to him until the very end. And by then it will be too late. Not sure where it ends? If it's a stand alone story or part of a trilogy? We'll see. But the smaller, cottage style homes were what I was imagining most of the commoners would live in. All the same. All furnished the same. Same size yards. Etc.

HEHE Fantasy AND reality??? Medieval socialism!! Sounds very good. Just get that ending right. Remember the lessons of JK Rowling and similar, let your story flow to new novels so you can collect gargantuan royalties when each successive movie comes out! ...You ARE planning a movie, right? Can I be an extra?

If it makes it to movie maybe we'll find a spot on the graphics team designing villages and castles and stuff. But if you really want to be an extra I'm sure there will be PLENTY of open spots. It's a LONG ways off. Only have a chapter or two written at the moment and NO publisher lined up... Wouldn't get your hopes up!

"No! I tell you no! I won't have you bringing some young girl in for supper! By candlelight, I suppose, in the cheap, erotic fashion of young men with cheap, erotic minds!"
"Mother, please...!"
"And then what? After supper? Music? Whispers?"
"Mother, she's just a stranger. She's hungry, and it's raining out!"
""Mother, she's just a stranger"! As if men don't desire strangers! As if... ohh, I refuse to speak of disgusting things, because they disgust me! You understand, boy? Go on, go tell her she'll not be appeasing her ugly appetite with my food... or my son! Or do I have to tell her because you don't have the guts! Huh, boy? You have the guts, boy?"
"Shut up! Shut up!"

Sorry, just watched the trailer for the new Anthony Hopkins film. :XD:

Absolutely stunning. I love the way you blend medieval and turn-of-the-century Architectural styles. The detailing is gorgeous, and the perspective is amazingly done. It's inspiring, is what it is.

Draw with a pencil, fer God's sake! It takes hours and hours of practice. Draw an old building somewhere, photo or sit on front of it! Yes, seriously!
