    Wip November Challenge: Grimm's Gate

    I've wanted for the longest time to break out of PS4 and see what I could do with other tools, especially 3d. I've doodled with Bryce a number of times over the past ten years or so, but I can't get a handle on the workflow and I always wind up getting frustrated after a few hours and deciding to forget about it.

    I doodled a bit with Sketchup a year ago, but without a project to put it to, I quickly got bored and moved on. I decided to dust it off again for this project. Castles beg for 3d software. I thought it would make the job trivial compared to the effort I invested in a project like Siete Torres.

    Heh. I was stupid.

    You can do some amazing thing with 3d software, but saving time isn't one of them. Having just finished the basic shape and top detail of the main towers, I'm already ten hours in. Of course some of that is learning time.

    Here are some detail shots of the tower top. The lower parts will be less fanciful of course.

    looks damn good, and remember those 10 hours - you'll never get back *lol* ... nah, just kidding - it takes time learning a new program, but the result is great - can't wait to see more

    very nice, 3D but sketchy. cool. I use Carrara for my 3D works, it's affordable and pretty easy to learn.. But it looks like you are doing fine with what you got.

    Cool stuff Immolate!! the sketchy lines look really great on this. Looking at the details I can image the time you needed to get this far, but it payed off. And remember that once you got the model in, you can SO easily change perspective and composition looking forward seeing this progress... cheers!
