Architecture is rather colorful, slightly whimsical and "cute," cottage-style, English vernacular, American storybook, Tudor, a bit of other influences. This is a good place to put a lot of my eccentric and complex home concepts that are not likely to be built "in reality" but are entertaining to look at!
This is also a test bed to check scale, look at density, relationship of buildings to each other, street size and purpose, lot size (small in town and larger as you get away from the center,) and many other factors crucial to developing a solid town plan.
SO I'm sure I'll be modifying, adding on to, changing, adding, subtracting, etc this particular file as I try to assign individual buildings to particular streets and locations. For now, here's a glimpse at the beautiful town of "Emerald Grove." Enjoy!

Such a quaint and very cozy looking town. I especially love the details of each house and building! I've been looking up house styles/architectural styles and now that I have words to search for, I'll probably draw houses! This is a wonderful project!
Such a treat! I am not a number, I am a free man and I believe the overall ambiance of the village contributed to my decision to leave in a house with character, 60°deg roof pitch (like your icon),etc...
I could imagine something like this being built by someone like Titus Salt ~ he was an English industrialist who moved his business out of Bradford where things had started to get polluted and overcrowded and instead built an entire town from scratch called Saltaire.
Salt built neat stone houses for his workers (much better than the slums of Bradford), wash-houses with tap water, bath-houses, a hospital and an institute for recreation and education, with a library, a reading room, a concert hall, billiard room, science laboratory and a gymnasium. The village had a school for the children of the workers.
Do you have any close-up of the top right buildings, the townhouses and towncenter buildings? They look nice, but it's a pity we can't see them better. (the 4 pics in upper right angle of the general pic)
Once more, your work is amazing, and I can spend hours just looking at it and dreaming. ^^
a metal designer/ craftsman- I now study the at the whimsey and fantasy architectural metal work on Buildings. Please Let me know if you are still active and drawing?
