Finding inspiration - my own, and others!

I've been poking around the web looking for inspiring buildings to make next. For example, I liked this image of the Stokesay Castle gatehouse:






and whipped up a 3d model from it. I'll be leaning on photos of the gatehouse for style choices as I texture it.

While looking for inspiring photos, I enjoyed finding what may have been the inspiration for others as well. Take these for example:

Clearly the same model. I love what Mystic Mountain Productions did with it.

Here's another gem I came across. I love Dave Graffam buildings. Check this out:

I knew I had seen that model somewhere!

Anyway, I think it's fun to stumble onto these sorts of things.

I've done it!

Or, at least, I think I have... I've submitted three little houses to be public on DriveThruRPG. I'm going to work on the set of tiles now and then I'll go back to more interesting buildings. Exciting! The doors to the Paper Realms will finally be open!

To that extent, I will also start posting more on the following URLs:

I haven't bothered with a blog yet (http://paperrealms.blogspot.com/) but that might come online too.

More info when the products actually come online!

Rounding out the first village set

Well, this certainly took a strange turn...


Working on a simple set of ground tiles, and I think it's coming along well. I'm playing around with grass, mud and cobblestone layers to see what effects I can make:


I might have to go back and fix up the house models to allow for these textures... poo... once that's done, I can probably make the 'bundle' be the three styles of houses and the ground tiles.
