Graphics studio and publisher Marlin Studios has announced the release of PREMIUM 3D MODELS - CITY BUILDINGS. The 16th in a series of 3D models and texture libraries created for use by 2D and 3D graphics artists, the CITY BUILDING models consists of 182 detailed building models for use in an urban 3D environment. The 3D models are presented in the 3DS, LWO(6) and OBJ file formats and all the models are fully licensable and royalty free. A special edition of Right Hemisphere's 3D Exploration is included with each library for viewing, transforming and manipulating the models. According to company president Tom Marlin, CITY BUILDINGS provides a means to construct an urban world for artists at all levels. "The depiction of a virtual city scene has always been a difficult task, especially with models that can stand the scrutiny of close-ups in an animation flyby. For example, most films you see consist of real-world miniatures that cost thousands of dollars each to create... As we've done in the past with models and textures, we want to present a top-notch collection of graphic assets that are affordable for everyone." Marlin suggests that the CITY BUILDINGS models are especially useful in game development for background scenes and level creation and in architectural renderings that require a surrounding urban environment or background. The PREMIUM 3D MODELS - CITY BUILDINGS library sells for US$199 and can be ordered online at the Marlin Studios Website at www.marlinstudios.com.
