For some reason, every time I see an abadoned building, I wonder if there are ghosts or other anamalous phenomena going on... it must be becuase of the creepy atmosphere most of them seem to have.

Imagine yourself in an old apartment complex, inside one of the rooms. The walls are bare concrete, stained by the damp air. Old dust-coated furniture lie scattered here and there. The wind speaks - the voices of the previous long-gone inhabitants...

boo!


It would be great it I could make such a scene in Maya that invokes the above atmosphere, but everything I make seems to look to shiney and too perfect.

*tells self* I must learn not to type in dimensions - use the mouse! Drag!
