Since Michael lives in a specific type of an old building with big rooms and high ceilings I decided to make a sketchup model of it so I can easily reference the rooms in perspective (since there will be quite a couple of scenes here I hope this will pay off later with faster page output).
As the present scene takes place at the door in the staircase I decided to start with the rough details for that (I could not figure out the backgrounds for the page I am finishing right now).
Two days later I am going to sleep with bleeding eyes and deep hatred of sketchup’s clunky interface and navigation after having done more research on architecture/building standards than is necessary for a webcomic (though probably a real architect would laugh his ass off at this) and after doing more math than I have since I ragequit Electric Engineering studies…
I have no idea where the couple of weird diagonal lines came from but at least some of them must have happened when I was stuck in the wall. The banister will be wrought iron but I will design the pattern tomorrow and not model in it (It’s enough to have the basic construction elements in sketchup for me).
Not sure why I am posting this. Probably because my mind is muddled by hours of Sketchup and Welcome to Night Vale.
I think I need to learn basics of Blender…
Goodnight Nightvale. Goodnight.
