Why Miami?
The answer for the question in the title is actually quite hard to give. About two years ago, me and my family went on vacation to Miami Beach. There we discovered the magnificent architecture of Art Deco. I already knew Google's Sketchup Application, so I started modeling buildings. I don't know why I liked it, but it just is cool to do. I think just  this weird kind of Thing popped into my head, and I thought 'Why not?'. My first model was the Breakwater Hotel, along Ocean drive. The next one was the Fairwindhotel. In my 3dwarehouse collection it says otherwise, but that's because when I found out about 3dwarehouse, I uploaded them in a different order.

Well, that's about my history with Miami Beach.

Currently, I live in Holland, and I get most of my textures out of the streetview function in Gearth. It's really ashame that lots of buildings just are covered in palmtrees and stuff, so that I just can't get the right textures.

100th Model
One of my best models of the collection is 'Art Deco villa, Miami Beach'. It's high detail, great color and hedge give it a classic look. this model is quite special to me, because this was the first model of which I totally had to improvise in the texture in order to get the contrast right. the reason was, that there were absolutely no pictures on the net, and the only iages I could use were on streetview. but those images were not the very best images I ever had. the sun made the pink color of the building look white, and I couldn't tell which parts were blue and which ones were not. so what I did was; I searched for a bit of pink in the images, made it a unique texture, and painted the whole building pink. with the windows and the blue I did exactly the same. and that's how I built my 100th model.

Does anyone would like to see a building modeled in Miami by me? Some ideas for buildings: Art Deco Hotels, your house ;-), appartmentbuildings, etc. Just get me some good textures, the address, and the only thing you do next, is wait for a response from me, and see if I'm interested in your suggestion.
