MattTheTubaGuy's Skyscrapers

I have just recently got Autodesk Maya. It has been a while since I have used it, so I decided to start basic:

I have finished the twisting building and nearly finished a third one:

after putting them together, I was quite surprised at how big the twisted one was. they all have floors approximately 4m high, or 0.4 units

By mattbennett at 2009-11-23

I am using Mental Ray, which comes with Maya. It is quite good, except takes a lng time to render sometimes.

another render:

By mattbennett at 2009-11-26
and a fourth building (quite obviously inspired by Flatiron):

By mattbennett at 2009-11-26

and my 5 buildings so far. I decided to do this one at the same resolution as my 10 MP camera, and from approximately ground level. (sorrty, it is a bit big)

The construction of your models seem to be
faultless.....on another note Ithink the towers
could really look better with more roof and
base detailing.The fourth building is really
class and quirky,,,definitly a thread to keep
an eye on...waiting to see whats next

I will get round to adding stuff to the top and bottom, and mech floors, etc. eventually. I just made the parts of the buildings that are reasonably repetitive, and left the base and top for later.
thanks for the comments everyone

my next building is based around a vertically stretched sphere, so it will expand from the bottom up to the middle, then shrink back in, roughly like the Gherkin, except it will look quite a bit different.
