This is a private project in collaboration with a wonderful designer based in Colorado. I had planned on modeling the #Arendelle Castle from #Frozen at some point, but this project pushed it to the forefront and I’m glad for it.

The first step was to screen capture as many reference shots from the Frozen movie; anything that shows architecture. For this project, we’ll need not just the Arendelle castle, but most of the town and even some of the harbor elements. Below are just a few of the early 3D renders showing castle walls and towers with a piece of the movie concept art in the background (owned by Disney.)

Helping physical modelers with 3D printable parts allows me to find errors in my own models. Rendered grey models help with that as well.

Wow. For some reason I have never posted any renders of the Main Street train station. I first started working on this model back in 2005, so I have plenty of renders to post...but since I created this Facebook page back in 2014, I completely missed this project.

What I could do is just post all of the past renders, but since I'm currently working on moving the model from 3DStudioMax over to SketchUp, I thought I would take this opportunity to document the modeling process in greater depth!

Here I am, inside of the software Disney uses for #fireworks, recreating their #StarWars show using my #3D model. Cheers to Disney for covering the license cost for me. Stoked to be learning what it takes to put on one of these amazing shows!

After my last visit to Disneyland, the Disney company offered to purchase for me a software license for the fireworks program they are using in-house. Tomorrow I have a conference call that will begin a steep learning curve involving my Disneyland 3D park model and fireworks placement inside the program. Wonder where this is going? :O

I must be doing something right when complete strangers share backstage photos with me in order to help me complete my projects. That and the Disney community is amazing!
