    The Shandor AKA Spook Central

    Here is my attempt at the apartment building in Ghostbusters. Ever since I First saw the movie in 1986 I have always been fascinated with this building. I have made it a little taller. It was kind of stubby in my opinion. Here is what I started so far.

    Nice work so far. The shots for the film were done by using a matte painting artist to add creepy stuff to a real building, so they were probably limited by the actual building's height. Though, I think the artist did make it quite a bit taller.

    A great subject matter, and a cool start, looking forward to this one (you should be able to use streetview to get a great look at the actual building - well the base anyway as evil said the top was a matter painting).

    I've invented time travel in 2 hour increments! here's how i do it:
    step one ~ make coffee.
    step two ~ open MAX.
    step three ~ realize i'm trying to drink from an empty coffee cup and 2 hours have passed.

    Thank you.

    Update:
    Sides finished on the main body and added the first terraces. I need to adjust the spires. Some are sticking out more then others.

    It looks great. Did you actually model the bricks or is that a bump map?

    Thank you. Yes those are bump maps. I hope they look alright. I will be adding the different shades when I get done with the modeling. The bricks start out as a dark purple at the bottom to a light tan at the top. Speaking about the bottom. I haven't started on the first floor yet. I want to give it multiple entrances. Original entrance and my entrance.

    Yeah, the bump maps look good. I was just hoping you didn't model all of that. That would have been enough to make you go crazy.

    Have you not seen the stuff this guy is crazy enough to model? Great work on the building so far.
