Building Smugwick Manor

Here are four preliminary drawings of Smugwick Manor…

First we have the first ever detailed drawing (I think). As you can see there are many elements here that are not pictured in the final illustration — such as the Cave of Forgotten Wonders underneath the manor — but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist…


Next, I drew a tighter sketch to try to make some sense of it…


This ink drawing shows the locations of lots of stuff, such as M’Lady’s chambers and the servant’s quarters…


And finally we have this pen and ink drawing, complete with basements and cellars, which is sort of the definitive Smugwick Manor blueprint. But I had to draw it again, very small, for the book, so some of these details were lost.
