Fancy. I may have to pull out one of my old cities (pretty much covered w/ SG canals) and see what I can do with these. They look great.

Hello Bighead... Nifty looking building. I don't know if I would use the rusty corrugate on the front awning but it is very effective on the main roof. Possible to find a non rusty or less rusty section of that texture? You may also consider some vent pipes on the roof and also you may also want to do some downspouts. The front facade looks good with all the detailing. This is a good effort.

it is very nice... But I think the Rusting on the roof is over exaggerated... milding it down would make it more realistic

I especially like the diagonal canals. Did you give them the Callagrafx texture?
Will they be available soon?

I like you house, but I must admit that I am happy that in my country they don't use currugated steel as roofing material. Doesn't look too nice!

thanks for the replies. simfox and jmyers, improvement will follow, and i think some down pipes need to be widened.

frankU, really its a matter of time. i hope to do some FAR fitting canals in the near future, and im working on the cal texture, except i'm moddleing in gmax so i dont think you can create the water illusion quite so well.  "Doesn't look too nice" - true but it does make for a good bat.

here is a 1x3 bank. a couple textures to be improved and roof junk to be added.

I love the W2Ws. That's a style I haven't seen too often, and I hope you'll make some more. I think the textures look good except for that big black mark on the side of the second building. The bank looks pretty good, but the wall seem a bit dirty, is it going to be a lower wealth building? Either way, you have some interesting stuff in the works. I'll love to see the buildings when you start to lot them.

This is the first time that I have seen this thread. You're doing some good work. I love small w2ws!

On the first building, I agree with the comments about the corrugate. On the main street level awning, I would just take the left bit of the texture (the green but somewhat faded part) and put it right across. On the main roof, you could turn down the rust a bit, but I think it's also more than passable as is. One thing, that black blob bit on the side wall, is that suppose to be graffiti? I think the graffiti tag you have on the one side works but the black blobish one really doesn't.

On the 1x3 bank, I don't have much to suggest. About the only thing I see is the glass on the side below the overhanging window bank; it is a tad bright, especially compared to the dark windows on the rest of the building. Some contrast is good, but I think that glass needs a little work. By the way, the roof texture is great!

thanks for the comments spa and co. i'll keep it short but yes i agree that graffiti (trademark) does not work.

here is a work in progress. the Belvedere Hotel on the corner of bathurst and kent st, sydney.
modelled it of original plans by Spain, Cosh and Minnett architects, then i Exaggerated it with the lower floor.
 i like how it turned out.
