Well originally this started out as a drawing, but it turned into something more personal. This is both my dream house and the house I grew up in [minus the ponds in RL its a small stream] My grandpa built it from nothing and died 5 months before I was born so we never got to share it. His parents owned a quarter horse ranch, and he was so talented in music that he worked for ovation guitar, traveling all over the world to find wood to use for the guitars, he knew everyone from Travis Tritt to Jimmy Buffet to the Jud[d]s. He was also artistically challenged, but died early for reasons I don't know. Anyways his house was left in ruins after my Nana's parents died, she let the house rot. To this day my mother is so determined to bring this house back from the dust and restore it to twice what it was in its hay day. She wants to put in a barn and cut down some trees for pasture. She deserves it, and she tries so hard and gets such small things done. So this is for her, and for my grandpa, to show I will always be there and will always help.
So this went from a drawing to a manip of sorts... lots of stock used....
