Post Intro

Hi Everybody..

I finally decided to join the challenge a bit scared cuz im learning to model as i go + only 47 days left .. but i think i have a clear idea of what im trying to do anyways.

My scene is gonna be in some of the libraries .. a panoramic view is gonna be needed with windows looking at the city in Alexandria or any other city.. Patricia is gonna be there some how..

I already did some sketches that i will publish tommorrow.. also i did some testing with models buildings and some part of the interior of the library.. i been reading the book for the last 2 weeks and also thinking of my aproach ..

I think this gonna be more of a learnig experience to me ..

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Thistledown

Ok here we go..

  12 December 2006
I like the style of the Thistledown so far. My only suggestion would be to make things a bit more exotic. Remember that Alexandria is a very terrestrial-seeming city, with Earthlike towers and skyscrapers, while Thistledown, built later, is a city more uniquely adapted to the environment of the Stone.

Keep plugging away at it. It looks good so far!

EON book inspiration..

Thistledown City was astonishing, newer than Alexandria by two centuries; it had been built after the Stone's launch, incorporating designs not thought of until the inhabitants had had long experience with their environment. Here the Stone architects had allowed themselves complete freedom. Treating the chamber as a giant valley, they had strung cables from cap to cap and hung buildings from them in graceful curves. Taking advantage of the upward slope of the floor, they had built arched structures fully ten kilometers long, bands of steel and processed Stone material interacting in patterns of silver and white, casting soft-edged shadows over the neighborhoods below. Some of the structures rose to the very limits of the chamber's atmosphere; these were actually thicker at the top than the bottom, like golf tees.

Even empty, Thistledown City seemed alive. It would take only the merest suggestion of people to come to life, Patricia thought; a few hundred citizens, moving from building to building, dressed in outrageous clothescolorful, flowing garments suited to the curves and vaults and arches, bright colors to contrast with the muted creams, whites and metallics of the city.

Pretty cool huh ? Theres a lot buildings to be add also the golf tee .. the cables, hanging buildings .. oh the arc buildings.. the roundenss of the chamber is not clear right now .. i think buildings could be hanging from the walls .. i need to get all the metrics right for this ill do some research ill work on the buildings an city next week..

Im working on the interior of the library right now i having a hard time with polygonal modeling but ill see what i can do.. i get some inspiration from art deco and some movies also
