My first task this trimester was to model the tower which will be the main tower in the scene. For the first version of the tower I used the model sheet but it had to be modified to make a more realistic and stable version of the tower. There were two versions of the tower before the final version which slowed down my workflow but through the process I learnt useful skills in spline modelling and hard surface modelling.
Below are the two first versions of the tower. The first version was abandoned because of lack of architectural structure and detail so we decided to go for a more modern look. The second Tower is inspired by modern architecture in the UAE, mainly inspired by the Etihad tower in Abu Dhabi. However this version features of fully glass exterior which would mean that interior of the tower with have to be modelled as well. To save time we resorted to a different kind of tower which was inspired by the Marina tower in Abu Dhabi. The final model is still a work in progress.
