WARNING: OLD ART!! The art and comments in this Deviation may no longer represent the artist's current views or interests.

Homework for LASALLE College of the Arts: It's that time of year again, when I need to plow through my dozens of files to organize my drawings into some sort of presentable order.

The first in that series is this collection of research sketches for some of the locations in HAT, particularly the Spanish port and houses, and the fort - now a cathedral - for my final animation.

I love the comparison between the fort as stylized for the project versus the somewhat less visually impressive forts actually used by the Spanish in this place and time. Gives a very good reason for the deviation from historical accuracy. Which would you say was more difficult to work out for this project, the Spanish architecture or the English architecture?

I definitely struggled more with the English architecture, because I wasn't sure what sorts they actually built at the time in the Caribbean, as I was getting mixed results in my research, whereas there are still plenty of port-towns conquered by Spain that sport the architecture of the time.

The details you put into the buildings are fantastic.

the roundness of the ground plane makes for a hunchy style of buildings as if the worlds circumference were not that large and gives a warm cozy feel to even the most bulked up masonry / stone buildings you've created. An enterable world of surrounding perspective....... you're dwg work rocks !@!

Oh my goodness that detail. I love this sort of stuff, when I get bored I draw cities. I never gt anything this detailed though, or such varying designs. I have a sticky note with a city plan I really liked... too bad I drew it in such a bad place haha.

Most of my HAT sketches are in sketchbooks, which I keep. I have piles of paper lying around my room or sorted into cabinets that I keep, until I run out of room. Anything I think it good enough to share is digitised.

Wow. Research. While the art is really impressive, I'm actually in awe of the research... I usually only get as far a wikipedia when looking stuff up. Well done, you put us all to shame. All of us.

How long did it take you to learn perspective? Cause that's one of my favorite effects in art, but I can't do it for shiite

We had one year of landscape design in drawing class, where every week we learned the basics of how to draw a new type of perspective. I remember barely any of it, I just observe what I can from life and practice.

My quibble is your Spanish fort is too much a round turreted castle and not the angular period fortification it should be.

Unfortunately I've had a textures folder on my computer where I've accumulated paper textures for years, and can't remember where most of them come from. It's a mish-mosh of various ones that I've collected, really.

Goodies!! So many goodies!!! Oh my gosh, I just adore seeing these. But you already know that! These are, obviously, things that really sink into the background, so nobody pays any real attention to the architecture any the like, which what makes these things even more fantastic! My texturing teacher would probably love you very much, I can tell you that.

Of course I love everything you do. I find this post especially interesting because I traveled in Spain several years ago. Where exactly does your story take place? In the Mediteranean (sp?) it is common to find minarets while you wouldn't find them in the Americas at all because the Moors never got that far. Patios and hanging flowers are big in southern Spain, too (I have pictures), and the top sketch really reminds me of Cordoba. You can tell the actual Spanish-built buildings in southern Spain from the Moorish buildings because the Spanish nobility had a bit more Greco-Roman influence, ex) the Alhambra versus the palace of Charles the 5th. I really like your sketches here, very nostalgic.

It takes place in the Caribbean, so a lot of the architecture is actually referenced from photos I found of Cartagena de Indias and Havana. I exaggerate the proportions, though, making the buildings a lot taller than they would be normally to add to the "we are fierce rawr stay back" factor. I've been to Spain as well, many years ago. I loved it. =D

Ooooh~. I especially loved Granada and the Alhambra. It so influenced my fantasy writing. We love your work, and one day my fiance wants to cosplay Louis. With your permission, of course. :)
