Back to Modeling

Filed under 3D

Before I moved to San Francisco, I was working on building a model of the Bank of America Plaza in downtown Dallas. I didn't get very far, but I did learn a few things...which is really my goal in doing this.

Now that I have new surroundings, I've decided to start modeling something different...my office. The Letterman Digital Arts Center (LDAC) is comprised of 4 buildings: A, B, C and D. I'm in building C.

I'm going to use the tag "Modeling LDAC Building C" for all my updates. Search for this tag to see all my updates on this project.

To get started, I went to work today to take some reference photos. Here are the photos.

I will use overhead aerial photos from Microsoft's Virtual Earth and Mapquest to get started with the main outline. Google Maps was too out of date to use, the building was still under construction and the resolution was not very good. Yahoo! Maps resolution was too low to be helpful.

I am using Maya 8 Unlimited for the modeling, and Adobe Photoshop CS2 for image manipulation.
