Hey all, first time here. For a university project, I have to animate a famous master painting. I've chosen Nighthawks by Edward Hopper. I've never really done any kind of architectural modeling, my skill was mostly doing characters, so that's why i've chosen it. The achitecture seems really rectangular and could easily be accomplished with a few well-placed extrusions so it's not too far out of my level. I have a few questions about some of the details, mostly where I should put the counter. I've tried a few locations but I'm looking for some kind of good "distance-measuring" technique I can use to most accurately recreate the original painting. Here is a screenshot of my mesh so far.

Also, as you can see i have some extra geometry around the front corner where I need to make supports for the glass, basically. Should I try to simplify that out or is it okay to leave it for now?

Thanks for your tips, I'll be sure to update this as the project progresses. I have until December to do this, so any advice is appreciated.
