Just a general update

I’m a little excited. There is a very good chance that by the end of this year  I will have modeled all the temples. I am still working, and I should have a few more videos ready for you all to see in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, I had a special request come through this weekend that I have been working on. I want to show you how it is turning out. This is probably the most complex thing I have done to date, and I think that says a lot. Now, keep in mind, I’m not done yet… :

For those who might not know, this is my digital reconstruction of the west end pulpits in the Kirtland Temple.

Update:

Thought I would add a detail shot for you to see:

  • Fun! Have you been provided measurements or a 3D scan? Or are you just working from photographs? What makes it more complex than a temple? Or is this just small peek of the entire (interior and exterior) Kirtland Temple?

    • This is all done from photographs. No scan, no measurements except general for the outside of the temple and rough measurements for where the floor and the Ceiling are within the temple. What makes it complex are all the small carvings and details I had to reproduce. The only temple that comes close to this level of detail on the exterior is the Salt Lake Temple. Each detail has an effect on where you have to place the details next to it, so getting height, width, and placement on each detail was critical. Even then I am still off on a few small parts because I just could not get them to fit into the space correctly. All in All, it took probably a total of 16 hours just on the pulpits to get them to look just right!
