week #10 - St James Church, Long Marston, UK

Hi All,

Managed to dig out an old set we havent done yet (we started with the gateway if you remember a few months back) Well here is the big one, the church itself.
http://freetextures.3dtotal.com/index.php?iset=1447&pp=
The object is to make your render as close to the photos as possible, no grass, trees, graves etc just the church is needed.

BT-3dt has set the limits and will be hopefully judging this one too, 1024 tri limit, and a 1024 texture sheet, any textures are cool, normals, specs etc to make it look as near to the photo as possible! As this is how they will be judged.

Please post your wire, clay, texture sheets and final render in this thread, wip and on topic chat is also fine here too, these challenges are supposed to be fun and we are not too strict on the rules. The prizes are a gold, silver and bronze awards handed out each week.

We will also post out a couple of t-shirts for 1st and 2nd places.

This one will run for 1 week and the deadline will be Friday 18th Feb 2011 at midday GMT

Also please note that one of the reasons for these challenges is to help grow our free resource libraries, so the model donations at some point in the future when our system is ready would make us very happy and give a new dimension to the free image library we are building up every week.

Sweet, I actually have time to do this one.

Um. The link for the photo set goes to the boat, instead of the church

Here is the actual link: Church

Here's my WIP so far, 206 tris. Got the basic shape done. Going to start adding the brick extrusions on the front and sides

I will try my best to model this one . Keeping it that polycount will be tough for me, same with the texturing, but It's good practice and a great cause .

Getting there, the proportions are probably not the best.

Even so. It's hard to figure out the proportions of churches. It has some strange lens that camera.

Excellent, I've been waiting for one of these to start. Quick question however, do we create the whole church or just the angle we can see in the photo?
