Introduction

Hi, everyone, this is my first tutorial of the creation of a 3D image, I'm a recently graduated Graphic Designer, from Monterrey, México, and its has been 2 years since I started doing 3D, when I used Lightwave to learn with. I find 3D great, because you can bring to reality anything that you can imagine.

Inspiration

I was visiting Guanajuato, an old Colonial city in México, truly inspiring place, with amazing architecture, cozy alleys, colourful buildings, and a lot of tunnels, a must see visiting city, which I got a lot of inspiration from. I took 5 days of to do the image, which in total was about 40 hours. The image was made up of simple primitive geometry. Texturing of the scene, I've use the3DTotal's great Total Textures Collection, for all things, including trees and the sky. For this tutorial, you need to know the basic tools of Lightwave, or any other 3d package. Also a basic knowledge of Photoshop. Oh and some patience. I consider this piece a mixture of 3d and 2d.

In this image, I tried to find a lot of references and info about the topic, photos of the architecture, colours and the mood. I've used different photos to aid me in making this scene.

Modelling

For the modelling, I've create some primitives, which I did a rough sketch with, one per layer, since they will become the buildings, and the floor.
