Fin. Salt Lake Temple

I have finished my Salt Lake Temple Model, and with it, I have completed a 12 year long project to model all the temples. If it has been dedicated, I have modeled it. If the Church has revealed the render for it, I have modeled it. I am now caught up with the Church. At… read more »

Monticello Utah Temple video now online!

My Monticello Utah Temple video is now online for viewing. I think the thing I am enjoying second most about this project right now is that I am finding fun bird recordings, often recorded within a few miles of the temple itself, for the video soundtrack. Monticello is no exception, as all sounds were recorded… read more »

Monticello Utah Temple

I have finished the Monticello Utah Temple… But not the grounds. I still have work to do on the terraces, the support housing, the chapel, and of course, the trees. And I might make some tweaks to the texture as well. But oh so moan details were added to Monticello today. This is another circumstance… read more »

Cedar City Utah Temple

I have finished the Cedar City Utah Temple video. Or at least the first version of it. I will have to do another after I have confirmed the remainder of the grounds.  I don’t know how, but I completely messed up the terrain on the retaining wall and did not notice until after the render…. read more »

Manti Utah Temple

Today I worked on the Manti Utah Temple. From the south side, where I usually provide my renders from, there is absolutely nothing different. You would not know I did anything. From the North Side, look at the progress I made on the Annex: Compare it to the previous render I showed from here: I… read more »

Logan Utah Temple

Today’s update was all about the Logan Utah Temple. I did way less structural updating than I thought I would today. Instead I worked on the texture. The Logan temple has this fantastic old stone, with an unusual mortar set. Every time I come back to this temple, I hate my texture and feel the… read more »

Cedar City Utah Temple

I am working through a good update at the Cedar City Utah Temple.  I have reconfigured the grounds, and have reworked the west end to match what construction photos have shown. I’m not sure how close I am in some parts. There are a couple of good aerial videos of the construction site that show… read more »

I recently got caught up in an excellent article about The Saint George Utah Temple spire. I am sure You have all heard the story: Upon completion of the temple, Brigham Young was not… read more »

Tuesday at Salt Lake

Back at the Salt Lake Temple. There are so many tiny little details that I want to do here, so of course I am doing them. Today I worked on this little Garden area next to the Relief Society Building. At this rate, I will take at least as long with my model as the… read more »

Tuesday at Monticello Utah

Lots of little details at the Monticello Utah Temple, lots of texture fixes. The only real structural change is the work I did on the spire. The spire on the Monticello Temple is unique, not looking like any other small temple spire. Everything else was cutting in windows , adjusting heights and running rib courses…. read more »
