Graveyard Scene

Finally! Here's that spooky graveyard scene that I wanted to have done by Halloween. Oh well, that's what I get for setting myself a deadline. The grass is what ate up the most clock. I created about a dozen custom Photoshop brushes for the grass, when I could of done fine with maybe six or seven( just need to budget my time better.) But overall, I'm pleased with the results. This is my first real attempt at doing a paint-over of Sketchup, and it lets me know that I'll have a fairly good chance finalizing my concepts the way I visualise them (click on the image to view 3/4 and then on the magnify thing to view full size.)


  1. Just discovered your blog today and am systematically reading it from the beginning. Great stuff! I, too, am enamored with Google Sketch-Up but have really been unable to grasp what to do with it... Thanks to you, I am starting to see how I can use it to my advantage. Thanks! You are officially in my "favorites" toolbar.

    1. Wow! Thanks, Chris. Hey, when you get some scenes or models done, leave a link in the comments section or let me know where you've posted them. I'd love to see how you're using sketch-up to your own ends. And thanks again for the kind words. I really need to get going with this blog again.
