    Speed Modeling Challenge #65- My Home Is My Castle

    Speed Modeling Challenge #65- My Home Is My Castle
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    *************************************************
    Rules:

    1. Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modelling times is essential. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.
    2. Post a render of your model (min 800x600 pixels) in this thread with a wireframe.
    3. LightWave should be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug ins are allowed.
    4. You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.
    5. Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.


    **Please mention whether or not you would be happy to share the model.**

    Glad you found these, spotted your other thread earlier and was going to suggest these as a good source of practice.

    Hey thanks, love your design, how long did it take to create the textures and lighting?

    Textures took about 15 minutes (just some photos cubically mapped.)
    Lighting took 5-10 minutes(2 area lights and radiosity) and render took about 35 at 1400x1600.
