Citigroup Center

I started another new project.  This time it's a pretty recognizable building.  Unfortunately the renders are already using over 4GB at a time, so I might not be able to finish this one.  I wish I could just get another memory upgrade, but my laptop can only hold 8GB.

Computer Problems and 600 at Night

I just had a major scare with my computer.  Last night the computer randomly froze while I was working with 3ds max.  I thought maybe my hard drive died on me since after I tried restarting the computer it refused to boot to the OS, and the drive kept making unusual noises.   Luckily, though, this morning, on the fourth attempt to boot, the computer actually started up and went through about an hour's worth of file repairs.  Whats worse is if the drive had died I would have lost all of my projects for this blog and for my classes.  I think it's time to either get this workstation up and running or maybe get a back up HDD in case this one totally fails.

Anyway, here's a night render of 600 Lexington Ave.  I hope you guys like it.

600 Lexington Avenue

I took a break from 277 Park Avenue to make this.  It only took one weekend to complete so it's probably the fastest I've ever made a model.

More on 277

Before the site that was hosting the poll went offline, I had most people asking for me to continue working on 277 Park Avenue.  So here's the little bit of progress I've made so far.
