    Thanks everyone for this comments so far!

    This next one is a typical tribal chief's tower from a large hilly region in my world. It is a broch-inspired design (one of my favourite types of iron-age structure) but these are mortared buildings, not dry-stone.

    This next one is a typical residence of a people with a partially clan or tribal structure (it's in a state of flux). The building takes some inspiration from a type of chinese communal dwelling called a Tulou - they are really interesting.

    I watched a documentary about a multi-generational family living in one of these in China. They are tea farmers. It was pretty interesting.
    Great work on these. I'm really enjoying your thread. These look excellent Larb.

    I'd never heard of them until a few months ago when I was randomly looking up the more obscure chinese architecture. The conditions that led to their construction seemed to lend itself to some of the ideas around one of my more underdeveloped cultures which is basically a collection of many many tribes/clans who pay homage to a high king.

    I also really like the donut shape. =P

    This is by far the best building artwork I have seen so far. How and with which programm did you draw that? Could you do a short tutorium or explain your tricks?
    That would be very kind and helpful!

    Cheers, Chris

    They are all drawn by hand in Paint Tool SAI using the pen tool. Sometimes I use a grid for guidlines, sometimes I make some basic shapes in Sketchup for guidelines.

    Thanks Larb for the quick reply. Do you use the computer mouse or a graphics tablet?
