Happy New Year! To start off 2022, I’ve started adding some storage items to the longhouse model.
To begin with, I’m just using some colourful primitives as stand-in geometry. Eventually this will be replaced by models of storage items–like dried plants–that other artists have created.
First I added a couple of overhead storage poles in the vestibules of the buildings. Then I combined those with the interior storage poles that already existed, and populated them with random collections of storage items. Here are some results, with different longhouse sizes and configurations:
Once we replace those candy-coloured primitives with more realistic models, the longhouses will start to feel like real lived-in spaces!
Here are a couple of views showing how the interior might appear; one from outside, one from within the vestibule. I’ve used a wide-angle lens here to make it easier to see the surrounding structure:
