Ground plan and elevation sketches for groups of storefronts arranged around a gentle stream and waterfalls with landscape elements, with wide pedestrian-only streets and walkways. Village could be a "real" town center, a theme park village, a gaming environment, or more? 

Architecture is an assembly of different influences as noted on the plan. The general "look" or glue that holds it all together is an Italian/Tuscany style for the massing, roof shapes, some materials, and general flavor, while many individual buildings have other influences. Hopefully, the whole thing "comes together." I designed each group separately.

Technique: Each of these groups was drawn separately in pencil on white vellum over graph paper in scale 1/16" = one foot, mostly using a 4H pencil for general outlines, window and door arrangements, and rough details, followed by a 2H pencil to darken and define everything, followed by H and HB. At this stage, proportion is everything! Getting it exact comes later, and each complicated detail can be drawn in a bigger scale as a separate drawing, such as a column, or a lamp, or a detail of a brick pattern. I then scan, darken a bit, arrange on the "main sheet," clean it up, and label everything. Measurements are rough, feet rounded off to nearest foot.
