Another challenge from B... this time it's Tudor cottages. Seeing as how a) I'm a noob, and b) I never draw actual backgrounds and such, I kind of freaked out a bit. After getting some refs from Google and the Fable 2 artbook (B suggested looking at that for some more inspiration, because some of the images I found on Google were crazy complex), I got down to srs biz.
First off, the final:
It clearly still needs a lot of work, but I'm pretty chuffed all the same - it's my first house I've ever drawn... ever, really (well, since I got out of high school, anyway). I fudged the perspective, which is another weakness of mine, but it helped to draw a giant cube that the house would "fit" into - that gave me a bit more guidance than vanishing points that ran straight off the page.
Here's the notes/rough sketches I did when I was looking up images:
See what I mean about crazy? What's up bay windows and whatnot? Q__Q
And my rejected first pass:
Well, back to work for now >_>'
