Cute little isometric fantasy house

After doing some isometric pixel-art houses I thought it would be fun to try painting a non-pixel version of some cute iso house. So I did a few sketches and chose to go for this very simple fairytale/fantasy cottage. At first it was supposed to be very small object designed like it was meant to be in some game but I worked on it a bit longer than I intended, so I abandoned the idea to make it low res. Because of that I didn't have to be careful with contrast/colours, so it would be very well visible on a smaller scale and also added a few more details that are too tiny to be seen when it's zoomed out. That's why finally I present it as a bigger picture, thinking that it would still be possible to see it as a little object on the icon :P  At first I made a very precise isometric skeleton, but later decided to crook some lines here and there to make it look a bit less square and a bit more cartooney. And making it cartooney gave me the idea to make the roof tiles look very messy.

what app to do 3d or hand drawn??

It's 2d, hand drawn. I use mostly Krita, sometimes aseprite (both free software).

Hi, Love the work! Can I possibly use it as a concept piece and turn it into 3D? Just for personal work and portfolio. I'll give you credit and everything when I do post the 3D version. Would be much appreciated! :)

Sure, I'll gladly see how it turns out. Have fun with it!

Anything is possible - so they say - so you just need to find the right tree, get some wood and build it :)

I like reading your decribtions. Many just Skipp that part, maybe because lazy or they think no one is reading them anywqy, maybe both. I really like this one, even tho no tiny cute pixel art :) I especially like your shadowing. You choose great colours. I am having a little bit of difficulty to find a satisfying shadowcolour sometimes I just use multiply :(
RGBfumes's avatar
Ha, so after all someone reads all this stuff :) Thanks for kind words! I too use multiply from time to time to be honest :) It's a super useful tool (in my opinion), so why the sad face? cheers!
NoNoKoHime's avatar
haha, I am glad I can be that person for you xD

Sure, multiply is useful and all but being able to get the shading nice without it is amazing (to me haha)
