I modelled this church for my portfolio because I like doing this kind of thing very much. As I don't want to be hired for anything but modelling and texturing my models, I haven't painted a background, composited my model into a photo, or used any special effects, like, for example, smoke from the chimney. I would like to eventually model an entire city, but until that day comes, this church will have no background. It is based on classic church designs, hence the title, and it will appear in an upcoming IMAX movie, called "Honey, I Shrunk the Universe!". The movie will be geared towards school kids going on fieldtrips, so it will probably only show during the school year, which I believe is September-ish. I don't know how the IMAX chooses their movies, but I think different theatres trade their movies with each other, so keep an eye out. Someday it will come to an IMAX near you. Maybe. I think there is an older version of this movie that's already been playing, but our Planetarium made a new one, or redid it or something.
This was modelled in 3D Studio Max 9, and I used Photoshop for the texture editing.
Here's my "Alternate Renders" scrap for this: [link]
