Chalet by owen-c Chalet by owen-c
A piece from a commissioned illustration I did a while back (will be posted later this year), which I got permission to repurpose into a somewhat different standalone image.
I rather liked this one because it was a chance to branch out into a more cartoonish style, something I have wanted to do for a while. So, putting this excerpt up as an example of this style, to showcase variety.
As with "The Doll House", the building was largely modeled "straight" and then the whole thing was distorted after that.
I don't really know beyond a vague notion what a chalet is, but the name seems to fit.

Chalet

1. a. A wooden dwelling with a sloping roof and widely overhanging eaves, common in Switzerland and other Alpine regions.
b. A cottage or lodge built in this style.
2. The hut of a herder in the Swiss Alps.
3. A type of wooden house of Swiss origin, typically low, with wide projecting eaves.

In other words, exactly what this building is. :) And I agree, the name does suit it. It seems so charming with the name placed on the house. Great job!

Ha, this is repurposed from something old where the sign had to be there and say something else... so the whole name and sign is a bit of a stop-gap thing
Hopefully next month I can post the original image.
Anyway thanks

Thanks, there will be more of it eventually.
It was part of a larger illustration, I will post it when I get permission from the client, probably some time later this year.

Ok; and does the client use your pictures somewhere? Maybe on his website...?

It will be the main page of the website.
I will be putting up a copy here when the website comes out, probably later this year.
