The original house has a cedar shingle roof. This was removed and a number of additions added.
It was decided to go with the ‘direct to deck’ install so that the tiles would fit under the windows sills of all the dormers.
We supplied Arris Hips as well as tiles for the vertical cheeks of the dormers.
The color was eventually created using 5 different formulations of ‘brown’ as neither the client of the architect wanted a solid ‘brown’ roof.

Roof tiles. I think I'm getting the hang of this. Test pieces or possibly final line work to be used in a collaborative/commission project, after the colour is added digitally.
Materials: Graph paper 5mm grid Moleskine A5 size with a Uni-pen fineline pen 03 (which is fairly big, but is a good average for drawing and inking - I'm very lazy about these things and am trying to be strict with sticking to specific pen widths - except for the "thatch" roof on the bottom left - which had to be a 01 - 005, I think)
I still can't decide whether or not the roof tiles on the top design are clay or slate, usually colour decides these things in the end) ;) #fineliner#fantasy#rpg#illustration#inkedadventures#roof#rooves#rooftile#tiles#buildings#cartography#dungeontiles#wargaming#tabletop

NOT too many people know that Detroit used to have a huge Tile roofing manufacturer located right in town. This is back in the early 1900's. It was called, The Detroit Tile Roofing Company. Some of their Tile roofing still remains atop the mansions around the city. At least those that haven't been destroyed or looted.
These Detroit Roofing tiles were reclaimed from a building after it was burned to the ground. Only a few of these tiles survived the collapse of the structure due to the fire. They were naturally a red terra cotta color but the soot and the heat turned them a burned reddish black which is really nice under lights.
