An attempt to visualise Étienne-Louis Boulle’s unrealised monumental cenotaph for Sir Isaac Newton. You can read all about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Étienne-Louis_Boullée#Cenotaph_for_Sir_Isaac_Newton
I believe the SketchUp model was created by ‘Javier Martin Macias’ but I can’t find the link on the 3d Warehouse anymore.
Boulle is the subject of Peter Greenaway’s film ‘The Belly of An Architect’, ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ii_4_xCzIk ) so I tried to hint at a Greenaway-esque composition, tone and draughtsman quality…
A floating castle – started with LordGood’s Island Castle from 3d Warehouse, via Cinema 4D & After Effects. Also check out Xfrog for some free sample trees!
Playing with a great free model from Pixel Lab by Paul Akrofie (http://www.thepixellab.net/free-c4d-models-sci-fi-mech-ship-and-robot-arm) along with some textures from Video Copilot!
