Acorn Street, Boston

Greetings all! Found this street in Boston. Thought it would make a great project. Acorn Street in Boston, MA. Took some liberties, but it’s pretty close. I included one reference image. It sure is great to have Google earth to use as a template.


Great work :+1:

Thank you sir!

Robert great work. Can you direct me to tutorials on creating the brick facades and the wrapping of the bricks on doorways and windows insets? Thanks.

pavements are really amazing :smiley:

There’s some manual labour in there right?

Hi, thanks. Most of the brick textures are from and Rob Tuytel has some excellent tutorials that include a lot of texturing. But it’s a lot of unwrapping from view and carefully lining up the faces.

Thanks for you comment. Well…not too much labor. I bought ‘modular pave’ on and tweaked them adjusting individual brick position and color. Duplicated and decimated them as they got further from the camera.

You can also achieve similar result by following this tutorial (it’s old, but basics are still the same):

Hi Robert, Where are the Rob Tuytel tutorials on applying brick textures? Thanks

Here are a couple of links to Rob’s tutorials. He’s a great teacher for environments. Of course, it’s a lot more than UV unwrapping. For brick walls, I find it easiest to select a wall facing, UV project from view, repeat for each wall facing. That way each wall is easy to identify, select, position, and line up. Just make sure you only scale in the UV editor when all faces are selected. Also, I like to use a slight bevel on corners after UV unwrapping. Hope that helps. The courses below can be pricey if not on sale, but well worth it.

Robert, thanks for the explanation and for the links. Again, great work on your scene…a real inspiration. Thanks for getting back to me on this.
