My First PixelDam Project

Hello PixelDam Community.
As you may have noticed, I have released my first PixelDam project, Harriet's Home, onto Sandy Bay for all to enjoy! First of all I hope you like it, and would be nice enough to rate it accordingly.
Secondely you can be expecting some more submissions from me in the future, just as soon as I decide what to draw.. ;)

Not looking too shabby for your first PD project! at least you managed to release yours! I just can't stop messing with my first ever submission...

Haven't rated it yet but the only thing that sticks out to me is the geometry of the roof lines...maybe its intentional, maybe its not but the 'point' of the roofs dont line up with the centre's of the walls as you'd expect them to?

Liking the water though, and textures are good were you've used them, maybe get more adventurous on the next one?.. I also like the overall design anyway, but maybe watch the geometry and detail on the next one..

..... but I'm a newbie anyway so ignore me if you want :)

Your block is very nice. I do agree with Matski, the roof slopes are incorrect and you might want to think of what you are making when coloring. For example, the chimmney is made of bricks but you have highlighted as if they are glass, or shiny plastic. Think real, but in pixels. The reason for thinking real is because the brain adds more details than actually exist. View any of my blocks and you'll see details that are not really there. This is why I call my art, pixel puddings.

What I usually do to solve geometry issues is draw assist lines like you can see in PixelFreak's tutorial in a separate layer.
I did many of these for my Villas.

Feel free to implement any improvements on your project.

Thanks for all the suggestions. The roof sloping was intentional, if I'm on the same wave-length as everyone else, but I've now done a correction of it so there will be no future confusion. Expect the new version of the project to be released later on this week (hopefully). :)
