Monte Cristo Takes Gamers into
the World of Game Art Design

As a follow-up to their recent
"Point, Shoot – Win!" contest, which invited gamers to submit images of their
homes for possible inclusion in CITIES XL™ , Monte Cristo today launched an
extensive blog post describing the process of recreating the winner’s real-world
home within the game. At

  today, artist Kirill Bozhok from Monte
Cristo’s Kiev studio walks readers through the step-by-step process of taking
images of a home and converting them into a full 3D model, complete with
realistic textures, environmental effects and lighting. The new blog post
includes images that illustrate each step of the process as it is explained. For
more information about CITIES XL™, the upcoming next-generation city-builder
featuring unique new online community features and "tycoon" gameplay elements,
