Storefronts by Built4ever Storefronts by Built4ever
My own designs for whimsical, colorful, fun storefronts, based vaguely on different European styles with modifications, done maybe 6 years ago in watercolor on Tan paper, about 12 inches wide.

They are like a childhood ginger bread but with you they can be real and it must be amazing!

Thanks! By the way, I was working on a castle sketch last night, with geothermal heat and power, and the name "Vulkania" came to me.

This and the rest of your buildings are absolutely delightful! I'm playing around with a story and part of the idea has to do with an artificially charming - but brand new village and so many of your houses are exactly what I was thinking about!

Yes, possibly, just mixed continental heritage, but more colorful I suppose...

Cool! Though European in style, it kind of reminds me of some artist renditions I've seen of Dodge City's Front Street (back in the day, of course!) :)

Yes, Dutch town buildings were the influence. My version more colorful.

Beautiful!
Reminds me of the Grand'Place in Brussels, Belgium.

That stuff is even more ornate, and taller I believe, but Dutch and vicinity town architecture is a partial influence on this.
