Using the model for layouts

So I want to do a panel with Brett watching TV and Patrice in the background asking him if he wants some coffee. I zoom around with the model until I find the angle I want.

And then I can sketch the scene!

I think this could really help me think about layouts. Of course I still need to setup the perspective with vanishing points etc. for finished drawings but all the fretting about where they need to go is lessened. Kinda fun too.

Patrice's Apartment from Google Sketchup

Cool little modelling app from google allows you to make a 3d model and then view it from any angle. Also has a ton of models others have built for reference. This could be helpful for seeing in perspective.

Here is a model I made for Patrice's apartment.

Another angle looking at the living-room area from the kitchen counter.

And another one looking back at the kitchen from the sitting area.

Also here is a model someone else did of Jerry Seinfeld's apt.
