Seeing as I’ve started my first really big personal project, I figured I should set up a WIP-thread to keep me going. I decided to try to replicate the Saint Pauli church in Malmö, Sweden. Not only because I walk past it every day on my way to work and therefore can get all the references I need, but also because it’s a pretty cool building. This is the first hexagonal church that I’ve come across.
Some of my reference images:
And here’s my progress so far. Nevermind the crappy rendering and simple lighting.
I’m using Maya and mental ray, my plan is to create a complete setting with trees, benches, paths, etc. A long way to go still but I’m determined to go through with it! I’ve never tried to tackle modeling such a big structure before so any comments & criticism is much appreciated
