Re: Wood house

Very cool - the detail on the windows/doors/casing is really nice... But I just have to ask - a vent pipe running through the glazing and then turning up underneath an eave?

Re: Mountain Lake Cabin Redux

Last question(s)! - Did you select the exterior opening and edit separately or did you just change the whole image? - On my monitor I notice a greenish hue/tint on the bottom left corner?

Re: Mountain Lake Cabin Redux

Thanks. AS crazy as it is yes I did actually populate the model with all 3D entourage.
