Transcription: Eiffel Tower Completed

It wouldn't be a  Paris without the Eiffel Tower so here it is finished .......

Also I added a bit of a glow to make it seem as if it is lit up.

Transcription: Update

Today I was able to  finalise another one of  the  buildings, the Patisserie (cake shop). The only thing I need to do is harder some of the edges but apart for that it is ready to go into my final scene and render a turnaround. 

Below is a test with bump maps, not 100% sure if it was effective.

Onto the next building .........,

Transcription: Progress Update

Its been a while since I last posted anything but I am currently trying to finish off texturing all the buildings. But here are the last of the building that needed to be model which I finished a  couple of days ago and have not got round to posting. Now that all the buildings have been model, I am going to take them and put them all together and start composing my scene, so when I finish texturing each build I will just have to import the object and then set up lightening. 

Un Chat Gris (Hotel)

Restaurant 1

Restaurant 2 

There are parts of these model that need fixing/improved but this can all be done when I come to texturing them. I have also modelled the Eiffel Tower but Maya keeps crashing so tomorrow I will post an update of that . Also I am going to continue texturing and as soon as the each building is to the stand of my first building (book shop) then I will post it up and also look at having animated turnaround for each building.

Transcription: More Progress

Today I was able to finish modelling another building the cafe, my aim is to try and build a building a day which so far is working. The only that I need to make sure with this model is the windows epically the tea cups shape canopy stand out a bit more because in this model they don't seem to be standing out so much but I think that is down to the colours i chose to colour it. So with the next stage texturing I got to make sure that they pop out a bit more. But here is today's model...........

Transcription: Today's Progress...........

Today I have been modelling the Art Gallery concept/building. I still feel it needs some more work done to it to push it even further but I think this can be done in the next stage. Which  is texturing and adding the Toon Outlines. But here is how it look so far...........

Transcription: Progress Update

So after taking Alan's advice about how to improve this piece as well as how I could go about lighting my final scene. One thing that Alan did suggested that I think really works for my style is adding a Toon outline which makes the building seem as if it has been drawn. 

The Bookshop building is nearly complete there are just a few tweaks to be do to the texture that I noticed on the turnaround below but this can be done when I start putting my scene together.

This turnaround is a rough version, but the official turnaround will be more professional in the way it is presented and the quality will be better. 

Next I have moved on to another building the Cake Shop (Patisserie), I have completed the modelling, uving stage next is to add texture and Toon Outline. With this Design I have built it to represent a cake and hopefully when I added the texture, it will be able to make it seem as if the windows etc are icing and have been placed on the building.
