It’s easiest to just make the walls really deep and then cover a lot of it up with the terrain later on. That being said, its overall layout doesn’t seem to change, based on the details given and on the fact that students can find their way around without a map.

Before we get into today’s post, I was asked to share a plan view of the original quad in my model, so…voila! To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The design is based on the castle layout plan included in the book ‘Harry Potter: Page to Screen’, which represents the version of Hogwarts used in ‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’. All drawings, concept sketches, and designs related to the art and sets that appear in the 8 Harry Potter films will be unveiled for the first time.

That flat lawn texture doesn’t look horrible from a distance, but it’s pretty obvious that there’s no actual grass here when you get close like this. For the record, the boathouse steps themselves are actually a great design, beautifully executed in all three incarnations. From Hogwarts to Hogsmeade, learn how the creative team envisioned the unique architecture of the wizarding world and built the films’ iconic locations and scenes. Otherwise, this book is a must-have for any Potterhead or film junkie looking for deep cut behind-the-scenes knowledge. This remarkable collection showcases the work of the incredible artists who laid the foundation for the visually enchanting magical landscapes of the beloved films.

To make matters worse, in the live-action location shots that follow, the statue (which I believe was installed just for the film) has moved to a different corner of the structure. We know the layout of Hogwarts is not 100% fixed; its magical properties do cause it to behave in some unusual ways. As usual, I’m striving for something of a happy medium, but weighted toward the main 1/24th-scale miniature. The gold and green chunks on the other side could have been combined with each other and/or the blue chunk, but separating them improves sculpting performance. I also see that some of the original lettering has been replaced with (much worse) handwriting, and that the original layouts have been altered.But ultimately, there’s a real beauty in all these drawings, even if I always find myself wanting more. Fortunately, not much changed, and the changes that did occur will be easy enough to replicate with help from photogrammetry measurements. My other main landmarks on this floor were the Room of Requirement (RoR) and Dumbledore’s office, so I tried to work out how they relate to each other. Did you know they often had to build doors into open archways at the castles and abbeys where they filmed many of the classroom scenes? Finally, I listed the views that characters mention from various windows at different locations within the castle.

Being a thousand years old, Hogwarts would have had additions built into it, so it would display a wide variety of architectural fashions. Anyway, the adjusted photogrammetry confirms that different flights of the Half-Blood Prince boathouse steps (which are the same as in the previous two films) do indeed have different slopes, which is why my vertical dimensions weren’t working very well. Stuart Craig’s team tweaked its footprint a bit and built it up into a much taller complex of towers; the bottom floors just looked like Alnwick while the upper floors took their stylistic cues from the original castle’s other conical turrets. In a twist that will shock precisely zero longtime readers, I’m finding lots of small discrepancies between shots of miniatures, location shoots at Alnwick Castle, CG long shots, etc.I’ll round out today’s post with some untextured orthographic views of the entire Prisoner of Azkaban model as of this moment. All of this terrain had to be redone when the Great Hall was shifted in Goblet of Fire, but the redesign was more similar to the POA version than to the original. My decision about the former was random, but I decided to put the staircase on the 7 th floor because that puts it nearer to the Room of Requirement, which Dumbledore stumbled across one night. How about that the wood-paneled walls of the Charms classroom — part of a real-life London boarding school built in 1615 — still showed the carved marks from former students, including famous figures like Lord Byron?
