A Short Tour Of My Bell Tower Model (So Far)

I have little doubt that this month is my record-setting month for posts! Considering how often I have let multiple months slip by, I am rather proud of this. I hope it is a momentum that I can maintain in August.

imageI have been working on a model of a bell tower that has been strongly influenced by the Turin Cathedral duomo (aka the bell tower).

It was many months ago when I first saw photos of the Turin bell tower. I kept think about how I would model it. Eventually – to get the idea out of my head – I sat down and started modeling.

There were a few abortive starts. My initial photo references were not good. Heck, as I state in the video, they still are not very good. But I finally got into a groove.

I didn’t want to make this video a full-blown tutorial. I had been showing off progress pictures to friends and colleagues; so this is meant to provide a closer view of the model.

Much work remains. There is the roof to build. I need to decide what the interior is going to be – will I keep the rooms that I have constructed or delete them and leave a hollow structure? I’d really like to get stairs modeled inside. Lastly, there is also the bells and their support structures.

I hope this turns out to be a respectable facsimile of the actual tower. There are some artistic liberties that I have taken already. I would be truer to life if I could actually visited Turin, Italy and take my own references photos!

Back to it. There are polygons to push around.
