Scalziand does Worcester, MA

This is a project I've been working on and off for the past couple years. Prior to my starting this project, there was only a few buildings downtown modeled by the WEDC. For the most part, I'm working on modeling the WPI campus and surroundings, although I hope to eventually work my way down town by the time I graduate.

Nice work! Good job with the textures. Do you take the photos for the textures yourself or where do you get your material?

Yeah, I take the photos for the textures myself. I prefer cloudy days because it softens the shadows and reduces glare. The textures for the roofs come from the google imagery.

Solid work! Any chance you could show some Google Earth shots to see these buildings in action?

Actually, I think I'm going to end up redoing Bliss eventually because it came out too dark.

This week I discovered that the Worcester Assessors Office has diagrams of all the buildings- makes it much easier to make models since I don't have to guess about dimensions anymore.

Some of the textures are so good - for example the Thule Building - that I'd really like to see a more detailed version of the building (more extrusions and intrusions on the facade) than just the flat surfaced Google Earth version.

Maybe I'll go back and do some more detailed models once the bulk of Worcester is done, if I ever get to that point.

Here's perhaps the ugliest building I've done so far:
