Sales On!

We’re on! As of now–a little earlier than planned–and up to midnight CET on Monday, you can get your hands on a broad selection of my scenes and assets at a 30% discount. As always, I’ve sought to strike a balance between full scenes and smaller individual models. The focus is on the most recent … Continued

Coming Soon

Can’t believe it’s been almost a year since the last BBB3viz Black Friday sales. The old-timers among you know that Black Friday is the one and only BBB3viz Warehouse sales ever–the only chance there is to pick some of my Turbosquid assets at a hefty 30% discount. This year, the sales will kick off on … Continued

The model can be found here (for V-Ray and Octane and Max 2013+). … Continued

As a footnote, for film and art buffs, the original building was actually used recently as a film set for Manifesto, an hypnotic video installation by artist … Continued
