I created this just one week after the Church released the official render. That render was rather low resolution, so I had to make guesses about the small details. I am not confident about ANY of those at all. So there will be another video later. In the meantime, enjoy this one!
This last Monday the Church released an official artists render for the Coban Guatemala Temple and the Okinawa Japan Temple. Despite having other work I needed to get done this week, I managed to scrape enough time in the evenings to put together this model. The fact that is is so nearly the same as the Praia Cabo Verde Temple helped.Continue reading “First Draft for Cobán Guatemala Temple”
I am working through a good update at the Cedar City Utah Temple. I have reconfigured the grounds, and have reworked the west end to match what construction photos have shown. I’m not sure how close I am in some parts. There are a couple of good aerial videos of the construction site that show some good details. I still am guessing when it comes to the trees, and there are plans for me to add curbs.Continue reading “Cedar City Utah Temple Model”
Cebu City Philippines Temple is now a finished model and off into the render Que. 2 days, 2 finished models. That’s a pace I am not keeping up for long, I assure you.
This update features a complete rework of the proportions, based off a photo that was well taken that I was able to use for reference. The trees are in, the grounds are finished, the support buildings are in. Overall, this is one I am happy with. There are a few things I can do for a future update, perhaps someday when I have a really powerful computer I will go crazy with the trees and textures, but this will do for now.
Caracas Venezuela Temple is off to the render. By the time I get this post finished, it will be nearly done I think, so expect to see the video in a day or two.Continue reading “Caracas Venezuela Temple to the Render”
I have decided to try to kick off another “Temple a Day” marathon, as I don’t seem to get much done these days without the added deadline. I will include yesterday’s post as part of this run, so I started with Durban and today we move on to Barranquilla Columbia.Continue reading “Sunday at Barranquilla Columbia”
I added temporary textures so that could more easily differentiate parts as I added the Moroni, the windows, and an early rough in of the grounds. I was also able to look at some of the construction photos of the temple and determine that there will be a second entrance on the west side (presumably for the baptistry) that I added as well. I made the foundation stones a darker (temporary) color because the official render seems to imply that those stones will be slightly darker (though that is most likely a shadow/lighting issue.) I wanted to see what it would look like with a a darker color, just for fun. I don’t think they will use it.Continue reading “Thursday at Cedar City”
Finished most of the temple details. I need the east and west-most center windows, the inscription, and the entryway. I made some decent progress on the grounds. Still need plants though, and the support buildings of which there are a few.
I’m so close on Caracas. The end opposite the entrance is essentially impossible to find any details for. I did find dome details for the grounds since last time though, so I worked on adding those. Still some textures to do, and still some details to add, and always, the plants.Continue reading “Tuesday at Caracas Venezuela”
I showed an update on this back a month or two ago, but I added it into the roster this marathon anyway.
Details, details, details. That’s what this one was all about. The spire is done now, and most of the landscaping. I still may want to add some detail to the Accommodation Center (assuming I can find some good photos,) and I need to plant the garden. The Temple itself needs the front doors and the inscription, then it is basically done!
