So...ya'll remember my Cathedral
. Big ole' white building.
This creation's gone through many phases. From it's humble beginnings
, the Cathedral has grown from convention
, changing with each showing. But, I'm sad to say...it was time. It was time to tear down the building, sort everything out, and start anew. And while the original took me literally years to build, it only took four hours to tear apart.
Buuuuut I'm not one to let good brick go to waste [And let's face it: I needed a distraction from the rest of my world, which is going the way of the previous Cathedral....]. So I'm rebuilding. And once again, I'm being ambitious.
Thus I present some WIP photos. These aren't necessarily the final pieces, but they're certainly more than simply WIP. I'm putting a lot of thought and care into the interior on this one.
Base of a Statue
Repurposed Stained Glass
Apse of the Cross-Design
Floor design work
What you see is about 8 hours worth of work, from laying the base, outline, foundation, landscaping. I spent about an hour working on layouts on graph paper, to figure out angles and what I want to see.
And that's only three bricks high off the base!
It's 3x3.5 green baseplates, or 96x112 studs. It's actually two modules, for easier transportation.
The design itself is based on real-world designs for the great structures of Europe. Wikipedia
has a pretty good article, if you're curious.
So. Any suggestions at this point are quite appreciated.
