So, um, yeah... The key word in the title is attempt. I think I did fairly okay (considering the quality of my other builds), but you can be the judge of that.
This is looking extremely cozy! Feeling warmer already ^.^ Now...where's my cup of cocoa with marshmallows if you'll please?
Ohhhh, I didn't think about those... Thanks for the suggestions!This is looking extremely cozy! Feeling warmer already ^.^ Now...where's my cup of cocoa with marshmallows if you'll please?
I like the attention to detail you've put into this build, especially regarding the decoration/furnishing.
The overall shape of the house is also very pleasing to the eye, and I really like that you sculpted the snow with a hammer, to make it feel smoother.
I have a few suggestions I'd make that might really make this build pop, if you don't mind ^.^
Unless you're going to be using the upstairs balcony as an escape route, putting some snow on the deck (maybe hammered to a half block) would be a great touch. You won't be able to open/use that door anymore, but who would want to leave such a cozy house anyway?
On the topic of snow, the left corner of the roof feels a bit off, with the snow missing. If you added some snow, it would look good, however, if you hammered the exposed roof to slanted, it might help to give it a feel as if the snow slid off. Come to think of it, I would probably do the same to the adjacent corner of that roof. I like the idea of having some of the roof exposed.
If you use different kinds of background walls, you can give the windows a border, really allowing them to stand out a bit more. I'd suggest playing around with rich mahogany and shadewood to achieve this affect. Oh, and paint them brown ;D
You've absolutely got the right idea with the spiral staircase, but if you take out the wooden beams completely, and use a background wall in its place (shadewood painted brown would be perfect) then you can place platforms in front of it, allowing you to give the spiral staircase a more "realistic" feel. As I said, you've got the right idea about it, that wooden beam is just preventing you from following through.
That's the end of my suggestions, I promise! Take them or leave them
All in all, great build! You definitely don't need to have "attempt" in the title. I'd say mission accomplished!
I look forward to seeing more builds from you ^.^
