    Thank you, Rob :)

    I think I may already have done something similar to that one, but I will check ;)

    Brick was used quite a lot in construction of the ground floor. A lot of the houses I've collected from around the rest of the country are either brick or stone, and then timber and wattle from the first floor upwards. The age of these buildings is then only apparent if you look upwards and see how the timber has twisted. I'm not too sure I would feel very safe sleeping in the end of that furthest house, even though its stood for about 500 years.

    LOL!

    I just wouldn't be able to sleep!

    Every time the floorboards creaked I would be out of bed and up the other end of the house like a shot :P

    I'm having a wonderful time with my beautiful Christmas present, so I'd just like to thank all my much-loved friends for making this possible by showing off my favourite model today.

    (this is a cropped screen shot, so not the full 'annual quality' ;) )

    Happy New Year.jpg

    THANK YOU SO MUCH, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR ONE AND ALL! :D

    Fantastic Sue! Sketch up is a great software, isn't it? I taught a class in it as an adjunct in the interior design program of a nearby state university. Wish I had a chance to use it more often professionally.

    Thank you clithgow :)

    I hardly think my crude attempts to use this app to make symbols for CC3 would match up to what most of the professionals do. Its usually used for serious planning apps isn't it - those multi-billion dollar city developments in the real world, I thought. But it seems that with a bit of minor post processing in GIMP I can make it do reasonable CC3 symbols as well ;)

    Its all happening at this end right now. At a rough estimate (and if all goes well) there should be app 200 new symbols for the February issue.

    I've never done anything like this before. Let's just hope I get it more or less right :)

    Isometric trees under development.

    (its pretty difficult matching tree styles with buildings, but I hope you like them)

    Those are beautiful. They remind me of Impressionist work, or perhaps something by Seurat.

    Thank you :)

    Outstanding analysis, Barliman. The final effect I used on them was called "Lylejk's Painting". I found it in Krita's version of GMIC (a bundle of add-on layer effects), and was so impressed by what it did to the trees that I looked him up online. Lylejk's work (real name Lyle Kroll) is so reminiscent of the impressionists that I was surprised by it. Its like a cross between Monet and Seurat, but also has a flowing line tendency that far more expressionist - like Van Gogh but finer - thread to his rope. Lyle's work is highly variable between pieces, but then I suppose artists have to be versatile and interesting these days rather than sticking to just one style and medium.

    You might like some of his paintings/photographs...

    Thanks for the link, Sue! I can see what you mean about the Expressionist quality to his work.

    I studied the history of Art at college 34 years ago, but I've forgotten vast tracts of it since then. Aside from the classic giants like Leonardo and Michelangelo, most of what sticks in my mind is 19th century French Impressionist and early 20th century expressionist, which might explain the bright and complimentary colours I tend towards.
