Hello Everyone! I am starting a new project: Liesel City.
City Statistics: Diameter-524 miles wide, building style: Primarily Baroque, but includes Byzantine, Neo Byzantine, Gothic, Coruscant and a host of other styles. I want to create this city in 3d, I do not expect to complete this project anytime soon, perhaps not even by the technological singularity, but something I believe worth striving towards.
Of course, to even begin to create this city, I will need to develop my skills in blender. At present time I’ve only have a total of 1 week worth of blender as of 8/12/14.
My first experience with blender was one of frustration. For a long time I have worked with a 2d program, digital painting on photoshop, but working on 2d has it’s limits. One being 3d or 4th perspective views tend to be much more difficult to do using a 2d program if you have the desire to keep it highly realistic. In addition, I am looking ways to create the type of details that would be much harder to create in a 2d program…
Long term, I do desire to make this city a virtual city, perhaps a place one may choose to immerse one’s self in, when virtual realities become a reality.
Here are some in progress screenshots. I’ve been working on this object for about 4 days. This object will act as part of a column from inside a building.
