Howdy, y'all! I already mentioned this in The Thread 3, but I figured not everyone reads it (unfortunately!), so I thought I'd bring it up in its own thread. For those of you've got signatures turned off or otherwise managed to not notice my sig, I've been working on a 3D model of as much of Disneyland as possible in a free program called Blender. It's been a lot of fun, but two months ago, I followed GRD999's suggestion to re-create a version of the Haunted Mansion that was never built. Sam McKim created this concept in...I dunno, probably the very early 60s. He left behind elevation plans and an aerial illustration--just enough for me to make an accurate model.
If you want to see all of the complete renders, check out GRD999's Ghost Relations Department blog. I'll provide a little sampling here, though. You can click these for full-sized versions.
That last one is a wallpaper image that combines 3D elements with parts I painted in Photoshop. You can also check out work-in-progress renders on my blog. And here's a YouTube video for good measure. Enjoy, and do let me know how I can improve!
