    Wip October 2012 Entry - Harkstone House

    I started working on my entry for this months challenge.

    Harkstone House. From the outside it looks like a dreary old mansion that has seen better times, but other than the bats that circle around it at night one would not guess at the horror that goes on within. Even if you were to enter the Main Foyer or the two front rooms you would not know something was amiss, unless you noticed that slight smell of blood and decay. But, if you get invited into the back room, RUN, if you can.

    This is just the basic floorplan of the mansion. The floor tiles will be changed, windows & doors added, then furnishings and details to follow.

    Thanks, trying to keep it looking dark and creepy.

    Thanks Cisticola! The floorplan is from one of the restored mansions in Newport, Rhode Island, The Marble House.

    I have added all the doors and windows, changed the floor tile in 2 rooms, and furnished Dr. Demento's room.

    So... the danger is being forced to listen to novelty recordings?

    I had forgotten about the disk jockey Dr. Demento, I guess the name just stuck in my head.


    More progress, still playing with the floor textures, though I think I've found the ones I like.
    Added most of the furniture, need to work on landscaping, and shadows.

    Finished just under the wire, had to rush the lighting a bit to do it but still not to bad.
