Temple 1

This building ended up looking like a national monument or temple. I wanted to do something with lots of arch doorways side by side. I was also going to make it taller, but this was a nice height.

Waterfall Hotel

My sister is in South America right now. She sent back some photos of an amazing landscape – dozens of waterfalls plummeting over a cliff into a dense jungle below. I visualized a large building wrapped around the edge of the cliff, with a waterfall right in the middle of it.

The original sketch and more views of the model are available on Flickr. Or, you can view and download the model at Google 3D Warehouse.

Space Base 1 – Original

This is the chemistry class sketch that Space Base 1 is based on. The snake thing was too hard to model in 3D for a sketch – maybe I’ll work on that another day.

Space Base 1

In order to foster greater creativity within myself, I would like to make a habit of sketching daily.  To be honest, at this point in my life I don’t necessarily have time to sketch every day, but I figure it can’t hurt to start now – maybe after graduation I can sketch more often.

So I’ll just upload my sketches to this blog.  In addition to pen-and-paper sketching, I’ve been practicing with Google SketchUp.  So some of my sketches (like this first one) will actually be 3D sketches… neato.


It’s a Space Base! I know it looks like something out of Star Wars – the door on the left is straight out of Jedi Outcast. I’ve been on a Star Wars kick lately, and I’m not sure it will end anytime soon.
