Gihn Mofeht's house [pencil] by SirInkman Gihn Mofeht's house [pencil] by SirInkman
pencil drawing on 8.5x11 paper

This is Gihn Mofeht's house, a mile or two south of the city of Shielport on the coast of the Carmegenny region of Marlwood, in the realm of Olde Shirain.... on the world of Luma. Gihn Mofeht was originally from Blackbottom, just north of Fogbottom. He was a friend of the Magstowe and Slenderfoote families in that area before his travels in the north and subsequent career as an purveyor of fine foreign goods from the northern lands, particularly Aldland, Birhn and Alfnord.
From the tower one can see Carmegenny Island to the northwest and Silhe's Island to the west out across the Shilhen strait.

Other bits from Luma...

Have you ever tried Sketchup? It's great for modeling architecture.
I believe there's still a free version.

It's a lovely looking place. I love the half-timbered look to accent all that stone and brick and slate, and the styling is fantastic. It may not be huge in size (modest by most mansion standards) but it is tops in style. I love the little gatehouse too, which alone looks like a good place to stay for a week or two (if it's not in use for real these days).

 

So how much is typical airfare to Luma? ;)

Would that we could. I'd book you a flight if such a flight could be found.
I agree on the gatehouse - I could probably live in that. :)

Sometime I need to put together a montage of some of my sketchup models.
I've been using SU since... probably version 3 or 4, before Google bought it.
I used to do stock modelling with it for some of the 3d sites. I love SU. It's such fun to use. :D

Like to see those - I started at version 6 and Ive just got the 2015 version but it keeps bug splatting when I try to use a plugin renderer, been trying c4d but I just dont find it as intuitive as SU.

This is an interesting site - some good tuts for using SU in a 2d art workflow.

Yeah, I haven't update since Trimble bought them from Google.
Yes... I have tried several different 3d packages but it never feels as intuitive.
I have several still to try out but it's tough to beat SU. ;)

I'll have to go over that site when I have more time.
Thanks for the link. :)

I hear ya. Today a house is built to hopefully last 75 years... instead of forever. Sad.
Part of it is the material cost these days. Stone is very costly... partly due to the small quantity of people who can build in stone.
A family member does stone work and isn't even a "highly skilled" mason and he makes about $50 an hour. Not many masons around these days. Fewer still that could do a structural stone building - not just placing stone as a facade.

And while I'm at it... no one does true half timber anymore. Well, not many. Some still do.
Actually, here in the US building codes in many places might not allow some of the features of this building.

Not only that, but the proportions and such in this drawing are also very pleasing.
I think overhere, most people indeed push efficiency and how much indoor space they can get, with little regard to the outside appearance.

Masonry was supposed to be as good as any artisan's craft, I thought. I've seen some gorgeous masonry in older houses, but hardly any in the newer ones around here. I found it interesting how you can liven up a plain wall with just different placement of the same bricks. But it costs more, and so hardly gets done anymore...

I know that feeling - 3d modeling can be very frustrating. And SU can be really difficult sometimes. Some times lines don't connect up and you can't figure out what is going wrong with a model. !!!! Yep. I feel his pain. :D

Thanks Steffen. It's ironic. I scanned it in before I had drawn those trees. I looked at it and thought that it was missing something.
Pulled it out of the scanner and went about doing the trees and grass and I was surprised that I hadn't done right from the beginning.
I'm glad you appreciate those bits. :)

May I ask if Luma is a project of yours? 
Reply
:iconsirinkman:
SirInkman Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2015  Professional
Yes. I have several story project worlds at differing levels of development at the moment.
Ideally I will be able to bring them to a publishable state at some point.
Luma has the most backstory developed at the moment. I have another that is almost as developed.

Both of them have some of the story/plot worked up. I work on way too many things at one time. ;)
