I had some tweaking to do here today. The spire was to short and may still be. Also, I think I have some of my details to big. When you oversize the detailing, the end result is everything looks a little Fisher Price. Typically, you can do small fine details on large objects, not small ones. Inversely, for toys, details often have to be a little over sized to prevent them from breaking during production or play. So when you make the details to big in relation to the rest of the structure, it starts to look like a child’s plaything.
That aside, I got caught up in trying some new ideas for texturing instead of actually working on the model. There will be much to do when I get back around to this one. The previous render is here:
