Well… that’s basically the name of as place I tried to recreate in 3d.
About a year ago now (wow) :-/ I started creating what I’d call my first proper model with SU. If done tutorials for about a few weeks I think and then decided, ok I wanna make something nice looking.
Ofc the world’s your Oyster and if I started a new project now I would maybe consider doing some illustrious mansion or super house. Seems a bit route 1 in a way… have tools… make our of your league destination :-p
but hey, money can build nice things there’s no getting around that. Even if I don’t have have solid plans in place to work towards owning a super crib, there’s nothing wrong with appreciating one I guess. … my more serious goal is working to a good enough standard producing previz architecture that I can get paid for it. Anyway, enough business talk.
I have lucky/smart sister in Surrey which has some absolutely lovely properties, (side tracked). Might maybe do one of those next.
Anyhow, I live with east UK. London’s obviously got a lot of potential for building modeling, but I thought it might have been done already and I used to rebel there once per month so it’s not new to me. So I looked a bit further. Google Search basically for churches/Monestary
. Something with a nice structure and look. Eventually I settled on a clean looking Monestary in Moldova (country). No idea who designed it, when built, but it’s fairly recent.
Catholic church I believe.
I modeled by looking at a single photo. I think I got only 3 of the (7?) towers finished and there’s plenty of errors and gaps but I was happy enough with it as a first attempt. Since then I’ve move on to (less interesting) buildings, but hopefully ones which can generate some income. (Fingers crossed).
I uploaded this unfinished model to Sketchfab which I think is a great site, added some shading, tried to create a graphite sort of look. Apparently there’s lots you can do with lighting on Sketchfab but I never got into it yet. (So many options!) -shapespeak etc etc. No textures here, not even colours, it has only black and white in reality. Maybe tuck into it again someday.
I’m done talking! Tired!
Ps- one person said it looked like R2. I GUESS!
