    Free Fantasy Architecture Part 3 (6/20/08)

    Free Fantasy Architecture Part 3 (6/20/08)

    It seems like my creativity takes about two or three years to recover from burnout. I've started doing 3D stuff again. Now I'm using Sketchup for the modeling instead of AutoCAD, but I'm still using Piranesi for the rendering. Here's an evolution of a creepy lighthouse I made for...

    What were medieval times journalist-types called?

    Free Fantasy Architecture II (New Stuff 5/3/2005)

    And finally, these are the renderings from 3D Studio Max that I brought into Piranesi. These have the complex lighting. However, I did add more torchlight later in Piranesi because I wanted the room to look a little warmer and...uh...torchier.
