Dracula with bars

Rethinking Dracula after the first sketch; I feel like I went too far with the neo-Gothic roofline. After seeing this quick work-up, Angela reminded me that there is a reference to bars in the script — they only go up on one window after one of Renfield’s escapes. So even though I enjoy their look, they’re a step too far. I do intend to insert tracery into the Gothic arches again, though I am considering a mix of tracery and more utilitarian round-topped windows inserted into the arches. . . The furniture depicted are placeholder pieces downloaded from Sketchup’s warehouse, though they have the dimension and general shape of what I expect to ultimately use.


And the drafting table, as I work up the groundplan.
