A little bit of background: Moorish architecture is a variation of Islamic architecture. There are many motifs or repeated patterns, different styles of arches, calligraphy, vegetative design, and decorative tiles in Moorish architecture.
Moorish architecture is named after the Moors, North African people who conquered the Iberian Peninsula and many islands in the Western Mediterranean beginning in the 700s. The Moors controlled what is now Spain, Portugal, and the Pyrenees region of France for hundreds of years.
The Moors were Muslim and influenced by the Islamic architecture that developed in the Middle East. Although mosques are the most common examples of Moorish architecture, motifs spread to the design of houses and places of businesses. One of the most famous examples of Moorish architecture - The Mezquita or Grand Mosque of Cordoba, Spain, is today the region's Catholic cathedral.
Modeling and texturing such complex shapes can be a challenge for beginers, but it is a real pleasing experience if you want to improve your 3D skill.
In this article I`d like to share with you in brief how i made scene 7 from one of the latest Evermotion collections - Archinteriors vol. 31.
When I start any interior project, I focus on overall shape of room and then I start to put lights into the scene. By using "overral mtl" in Vray settings I always check what light setting looks the best for me.
In this scene I had to model quite a lot of small items. When I prepare elements of the scene, I always try to make them as close as possible to real ones. Small details make it more ineresting.
This method works also in case of modeling buildings (for eg. those in Archmodels vol. 133 were made with the method above), leafs, ornaments, etc.
Texturing a pillar
A pillars look easy to model but texturing can be tricky. Lets see how to make pillar`s stripes twirl around by using Unwrap modifier:
