I really like your "pencil effect". Is that a filter setting? It shows well on the building itself. I've been trying to achieve something similiar with dismal results. Great trees too. Nice choice of colors.

thanks, Coen! - checked your website - like your stuff.

yes, todamgood4U, this is a plug-in filter for ps (can't remember where i got it or which one, though). i was messing around with different filters and layers back in the day before the dennis technique hit the forum. had some luck with watercolor effects too that aren't as involved as dennis'. really like your charity playhouse - good stuff.

you may take this as a compliment or not... depends on your influence... but for me... very Frank Lloyd Wright... I worked under an Architect name Warren Bates here in Springfield Mo... he was influenced by FLW and I love the style, reminds me of bluffs and cliffs, stacked rock... the effect of the long straight lines atop one another...

I dig it!

sorry. have been out of town.

thanks krisidious - you are too kind.

i checked your website and you and your mom's stuff is where it is at - very cool! i like it a lot - universal studios meets residential - that would be awesome to be apart of that type of construction.

sure was, Alan. i had a chance to do some mountain biking and hiking around the area on weekends with my dog - canoek. i found a great spot to just sit and ponder. it was at the head of a canyon. there i could sit, safely dangle my feet over a 400' cliff and marvel at sheer canyon walls before me. i was completely taken in by the breath-taken-beauty carved by wind and rain in these massive walls of stone. it put things into perspective.

regards,
jb

jb, I like your style(s)...different but nice fit together. My fave today is 733...gotta try something like that! Best, Tom.

(Also, hope you don't mind, but the "redhat" dormer/pilaster element WILL be stolen...really nice!)

Wow, very nice. The one thing that stands out to me is that the overhangs are not pronounced enough.

I gotta agree with Tom here...733 rocks. I like the sepia-ish-selective-muted colors. Nice SD conceptual look.

Jb,
I think he means the soffit areas as the overhangs.

Thats a good question. Maybe pic unaweep.JPG But it looks like you have 12 to 14 inches on them. Well anyway nice models.

Sorry I did not see this before. Yes it is the unaweep.JPG image I was referring to. I am talking about the soffit areas, yes. Where the rafter tails come out. I just think they could be a little longer. Maybe it is just the angle of the image.
Great image though, really nice. I like the rendering style very much.

gotcha. i see what your referring to - now that you mention it they do seem kind of wimpy. they are drawn as built though, 2x6x16". oh well, on the actual house they turned out much better.
