Ravensblight Manor - Pt 2

The Halloween paper kits found on Ray O'Bannon's website are not finely detailed scale architectural renderings but rendered in more of a cartoon style which I really like. These would look right at home in a Scooby Doo cartoon.

Here's an in-progress shot of the interior with the strip-wood bracing applied. This actually posed a small dilemma. You see, the house has no back wall so as to show off the decrepit interior. That meant that the graphics for the interior front and side walls  - which is one continuous drawing - had to be cut into three separate pieces and each wall had to be trimmed down. The last installment will show the completed house. Enjoy!

The shortened interior walls have been glued to the bracing. The bracing is colored simply using a black magic marker.

If I had to do it over again I would use thinner strip-wood but this 1/4" stock was all I had on hand.

The interior also has a floor. This photo shows the original artwork before trimming
