same idea perfecto. a playground would be neat. it has alot of different objects and props. but maybe not just playing area itself. but the fence, sidewalks, curbs. alot would be learned really.

awesome a house! with a little playground in the back would be pretty cool.

Is this going to have a texturing part? Or is it just a model?

I really like the covered porch thingy going around the house and the chimney. Great idea.

hi,

this might be a bit too late. But what I'd really and what's not really there would be an in depth tutorial on how to light and render. 80% of the tuts here are focussed on modeling which is fair enough but light is of so much importance to make a model look really good.
It would be great to get a tut that goes beyond three point light setup and explains how to actually proceed from that make tweaks and such.

Kurt I would like you to do a tut on drawing a character image plane for the front ,side, and top view.Also included how to line them up perfect for import into maya. I have problems lining up and drawing the top and side profile s of my characters. They never seem to line up.
