Gumshi Homes

Posted Sep 16, 2021, 3:55:53 AM UTC

Finally got around to doing concept art for the buildings of the village my story is set in! It says homes here, but the smaller a settlement, the less specialized building tend to be, so most businesses operate out of homes, from stalls, or are serviced at the target location, so these make the majority of the village. Gumshi is located right next to a lake, and the area is semi-tropical, therefore monsoon season happens annually, and flooding is a concern. The natives all have gills, but floods can destroy things from the force of water, rot wood that homes are built from, or destroy perishable possessions, so they do take efforts to keep it out of the buildings. The main portion of the structures are elevated, but so is the land that they are built upon, which isn't shown here. This is a fairly simplified version, I still have to figure out proper proportions and whatnot.

Art and concept design belong to me, and are for my sole use.

      Thank you so much!! I didn't think there'd be much interest in concept art for buildings and posted it for the sake of posting something. Gumshi is where my story will be located, so the details need to be solid! I enjoy thinking about the ways an individual's day to day life would differ as result of a different physicality, so its been fun to think through how a village of aquatic dragons would be put together.
