Some sort of storage tower

An addition to my "Decayed Collection" I suppose.

In a nutshell, this object was modeled in Hexagon 1.21, procedurally textured in Carrara Pro 5.1, rendered in Vue Infinite 8.

Forgot to put the clouds back.

Blue skies (kind of)

A test render in Vue. The bump is generated by Vue from the color (diffuse) texture map.

Brick by brick

I've been browsing the web for old factory images so I could get an idea of how to model one.

This smoke stack was modeled in Hexagon, UV mapped in 3DCoat, and textured/baked in Carrara using procedurals. Bump was added in this modo render.

Plants and landscape will be added in Vue.
