|Now there is a lived in house ready to be fought over.|
This was a fun project to paint, I especially liked working the dry-, air- and regular brush on the roof tiles to make them look nice and weathered. The chimneys actually had to be toned down as I got too carried away applying sooth there. I put the old wizard out in front of the house to give a bit of extra scale to the whole endeavor. Lets do two quick in-between snaps (the only two I have).
|Add primer (and backlight) and all your sins and mistakes seem to disappear.|
|Add paint and they're all back again.|
|Now that guy looks like he's up to no good.|
|I wanted to add more color to the courtyard, but I think it still worked out like this.|
|Who left the gate open?|
|Not mentioned in the text, I lightly airbrushed a black wash along all the bottom walls to tie the building in with the base.|
|And a final shot of the courtyard and the stable doors.|
And as a final shot a side by side of the inspiration and the final project. Not one on one, but close enough for my taste. Now on to more buildings (or a different distraction).
