Now, this is one of my first(2005) , and strangely enough, as most complex and ambitious architectural projects with Maya. Commissioned by Dr. Farish A. Noor, then of the ZMO, after his return from the Dar-Al-Uloom Madrassah in Deoband, India, this model is a fairly accurate rendering of the same, considering that all I had to go by were photographs taken there.
Built entirely in Nurbs (Approx. 125000 surfaces!!!), this project led a series of computers to crash due to it's immense detail an complexity. A few pictures:
I had a lot of fun, even though, now that I have the appropriate equipment, I intend to plant a few trees in a model that has given me joy for a couple of years now. It might come in handy at a later date.
