I’m not really much of a planner when it comes to building, I like things to evolve naturally. I would probably be a far better builder if I did at least sketch out an idea first. I thought though, it would be interesting to see the evolution of my building so far… I ought to point out that I am just a run of the mill builder, no voxelmancy here I’m afraid 😉
very first attempt – got nowhere near finishing.
my second proper attempt with a rubbish but functional roof. To start getting to grips with Landmark, I decided that I had to learn to walk before I could run and so I made a very sweet and square beachside house, complete with workshop and bbq area.
my third attempt – loved it, especially the garden, but from the side it sort of looked like a ferry… and I couldn’t take it seriously after that. Here I started using some actual techniques (mainly curves for the rooves and windows)
Finally, my current build which has used elements from the previous build and includes some furniture using the micro voxel technique. I still have absolutely no idea which style this belongs to – probably none… However, it did start to remind me of the gorgeous architecture of Santorini so I added the octagonal domed folly to the top, some more aquamarine trim and some er floaty balls. I love the colours of this though – cool white and aquamarine on the outside, warm yellow lighting and warm wood floors with white and aqua highlights on the inside. It is still quite square though.
What’s next? Well I shall probably keep tweaking this build (I have an icy basement which looks straight out to sea to work on) but as it is only 1 claim, I think I might put down a 2nd claim, choose a forested area and work on something maybe a little more elvish inspired. (if you don’t see a post you’ll know it ended up like my ‘elvish designs’ in Minecraft – more gulag than rivendell 😛 )
If anyone would like to visit, search Eldae (the full title is Eldae’s Icy Retreat) on the showcase and port straight there. It’s located on the North Coast, Timber, Understanding (EU).
