Entry Models

Requested by some of you, the subject for this challenge is 'Abandoned Places'. The image above shows one of three Soong Sisters Houses, in the center of Singapore, mysteriously abandoned in the 1980s. The estimated value of the complex is 465 milion USD. Nobody knows who owns them, how old they are, who lived there, etcetera. The houses are said to be haunted, and every day tourists come to visit the ruins. They are surrounded by tall condominium towers, in one of the most developed areas of the city. The challenge in this Challenge, is to try to make your model mysterious; the viewer should be wondering where it is located, why it is abandoned.
Good luck!

  5. Hello GoldenSim,

    A lot of other 3D Challengers asked for an extended duration of this Challenge, because abandoned places require a lot of detail. If you like, add some subject suggestions to this comment page!

    Best wishes,

    3)Abandoned Art Deco Hotel -MILO Minderbinder

  15. dont we have a new challenge for the voting time ?

  16. There should be more people voting now!! At least the ones who entered... so it's my turn now.
    It's an awkward situation since there were a lot of great models and 'SCIFI LICIOUS' added his model three days ago (too late, so to speak).
    Then, my three points go to "Dracula ghost train" parce que je trouve l'ensemble très cohérent et les détails du décor relativement subtil, ce qui est un plus. L'atmosphère est également agréablement travaillée. Point négatif, comme je l'ai dit dans mon commentaire, je n'aime pas spécialement le mobilier et je trouve les 'spectres' est peu caricaturé, mais je comprends :)

    My two points go to 'the effects of time' by GoldenSim, because I couldn't vote here without thinking of him, he was the first to upload and surprised me although it's indeed a bit cliché. Mais belle mise en scène tout de même :)

    My last point goes to "Antarctica, winter 1982" because.. um, it has taken me aback.. I don't know how to say but I felt something strange when following the scenes and I think it was part of the aim to create a special atmosphere. And Sketchmaster Tóth managed to make it.

    All in all, a lot of efforts and great modelers and I'm sad I couldn't have given points to the other great models of TANTUNNY, falconview or TESLER✈....etc

  17. 3: Abandoned Metro by moboille
