I find it very difficult to draw wooden planks/textures on buildings, and considering I am drawing alpine chalets, is quite an issue. Any tips on how to improve?

Attached are attempts at it... the walls should really be wooden textured.

Here is my newest attempt at drawing a wooden building. Having gone for wooden planks... it looks too uniform. It needs some noise, but then noise ruins plank effects.

I tried something like this.

  • tried to make it from more than 2 colours so it gives you the possibility to make some noise instead of lines
  • changed the right wall, the front under the roof with the windows, and the right bottom under that
  • even added the darkest shade of the pale green as I had no more colours to use but it did the job (I think)

Like this?

that is nicely systematic and keeps some good amount of colours :) I mixed a bit too many ... but in that small amount of space like the area under the roof it isnt easy to fit the pattern

Admittedly in such a small scale you cannot do much. Check the Toyland wooden house-I faced the same problem.
