Chapter 8. Sets > Building Buildings

Building Buildings

I've always thought it odd that the finished product of the act of building is itself called a “building.” Shouldn't it be called a “built” instead? But because we have this same linguistic quirk with paintings, carvings, and recordings, it doesn't seem likely to change. I'll have to content myself with building buildings, and then telling myself that they're really built. Fortunately, building them in Maya is a lot easier than building the real thing.

Starting with a few simple drawings and some reference material about Deco style gleaned from the web, this neighborhood needs to come together quickly, but with some flair.
