Hi! Looking good. I hope you can finish it on time.
My observation is that in a moment plane hits ESB shading on the lower part of the buiding changes. Shadows seem to suddenly appear out of noware.
Good luck!


you’re right, the shadows do appear out of nowhere. thanks for pointing that out.
i hope we have time to fix that by deadline. : \
