Nice textures. The buidlings remind me of the ewoks, don't know why. I like it.
But it will be hard to integrate the 3D in your photo.

Will you let people run around? There are so many walkways.
Waiting to see more.

wow, nice textures, but it doesn't look integrated in the scene yet :wip:

Coming along really well! My only comment would be that the perspective of the photo doesn't seem to match the perspective of the 3D.

Have a play around with it, I'd also fix up the bases they look a little unclean.

Looks nice, though you might want to rethink using that Zorg building texture done by Eric Hanson, since it's copyrighted and all. Being a Fifth Element fanboy, I recognized it instantly. ;) I agree with the comment about the perspective not being quite right, but also the lack of shadows is what's making it not look like part of the backround. Keep it up, not much time left. :)

Yeah right now everything is temporary (including the textures- which are just some that I found on the internet along time ago;) ). I've only spent about 45 minutes on this altogether so far & I've got so much more to do (model the terrain, set up camera mapping, match the perspective, etc.) that it will be hard for me to finish by the deadline- but I'll sure try!!!:wip: But as of now I have a couple of paying jobs to get back to so- thanks everyone for your comments & feedback :beer: 3DF.
