After looking through hundreds of lighthouse images, I chose one to finally model. The final product is mostly the same except for a some small differences. The differences mostly concern the island that the lighthouse sits on, and the dock that I added to the island. I used Maya, Zbrush, Photoshop, xNormal, and UDK to build it. The island took the most time during the sculpting in Zbrush, mostly just due to the size of it, and I started over a couple times because I didn’t like how it was turning out before I arrived at this final version.
