In this project you will create a complete rendering of an ancient architectural site. You will learn how to apply complex modeling skills and lighting to render a highly realistic scene. You can choose between the following sites:
- Research: You will create a Google Presentation with reference images and links that will be used to guide your project. If there is any pertinent vocabulary relating to the construction of your project, you will also discuss that here. If your site has multiple features or intricate details, be sure to find reference images for these components as well. Vocabulary examples: pediment, crest, doric column, etc.
