    The 3d work has almost been completed. I have to draw some more windows (around 10...) and then there is a small tower in one of the sides, so i will probably be making that as well.

    Hm, i am not sure that this looks good.
    This is the beginning of 2d correction, but the main model will remain the same.
    I will probably change significantly the tower, and the round roof though.
    Your view?

    Dunno why should you change anything, but I`m sure the change will be great! :)

    I`d just go with a different color for the roof.

    I had to correct the isometry of almost everything.
    Anyway, after a human number of changes (around 666), here is the model again.

    It still is not that much near the real thing though.
    It could pass as a more generic round rooftop basilica.

    What do you mean?
    If you mean that the two pics are the same, you are wrong ;)

    The changes are:

    1) the tower is entirely altered
    2) The windows of the main part of the right side of the model have been fixed to be in a perfect diagonal progression
    3) the left smaller structure in the lower left part of the model has been replaced with an identical to the other structure of its type
    4) the windows of the part immediately below the rooftop have been changed (also various other changes happened ther,e and they are not complete yet).

    I still have to make a few more windows, and if i do not find the model to be too much of a failure, i will probably have uploaded it by tommorow ;)

    Ah yes, the tower looks better... I had to look really, really, re-he-he-he-eally close to see the other changes.. and it took me like 2 minutes to spot them..

    I think the building looks great, just do something with the color of the roof, and its ready for posting, IMO :)

    Regarding the round roof there is always this sort of thing:


    (however i will have to rework the three big windows in the lower left side of the church).

    I think that the model has finally started to look good :D (still not sure if it is as good as the Timisoara though)

    I have almost finished it (no, i was not working on it all this time; i am busy with my 'real' art too ;) ).

    It is not exactly like the Hagia Sophia of Thessalonike; the roof is a different colour, and the side has four divisions instead of three (only three can be seen though). Also the top windows look like they came out of Alice in Wonderland.
    Do you like it?

    This is the tower of london, with its city screen graphic as well.

    I am desperately looking for an Alhambra wonder. There is supposedly one but it does not refer to it at all.

    I want to see the artisitc part of it (with splash).

    Are you interested ?

    Post a pic of it.

    If it is the entire complex which came up when i searched for it in google though, then the answer is no, since it is too detailed to bother making.
    If its just one building then i might ;)
