Victorian Mansion Lighting Study

These are the first two renders of the lighting studies for this model. There were experiments with warm and cool lighting for the two studies. These are also Quick Renders in the Rendering program Kerkythea. I believe that is the reason for some of the art effects. The general effect of the lighting is close to what I am after.

Test renders

This is a series of test renders for the current model I've been working on. Part of my motivation for this model was to see what level of detail SketchUp can take at present. I have been very pleased with the performance of the software. My computer however is showing signs of stress. Only a couple of textures have been added so far. More to come

Victorian Mansion

I've been working on this very detailed project. I just wanted to let everyone know I'm still working. I wanted this project to test the ability of SketchUp to do a large detailed project. This project is not finished. There is a great bit of detail left to do. And a lot of clean up to do as well. So far SketchUp had been handling the work well. I believe it's my computer that's getting the work out.Once again I'm always open to comments and suggestions.Also a big thanks to those of you who have subscribed to my site.

Window Curved Victorian

This is curved window designed to fit on the rounded room detail of Victorian buildings. I've draw several Victorian homes in SketchUp and had a need for this type of window. I finally figured out how to construct this type of window. I personally like this type of window and would like to see them come back in modern architecture.
