Japan Town 07

Hello, this is one my 1st layouts i created for modeling class. I really enjoyed working on this layout and arranging compositions for these buildings. It was satisfying to see a complete piece when i finished this. There were two problems i encountered while working on this layout and it was the file size. Since it was my 1st layout i created, i just went ahead building everything and not thinking about the technical side of this project until my file size came to 300mb. When layouts are this big, it will not render properly. The rooftops were individual pieces as if it was really being built and one roof had a complete set of 200+ tiles which skyrocketed the file size from 20 to 300mb. The best way to output this piece was to render the buildings separately and then putting them together in Photoshop. Enjoy.

This layout i drew inspired me to model a layout of a Japan town.
