Temple by postapocalypsia Temple by postapocalypsia

This started out from an inspiring photo I saw by AustriaAngloAlliance - I let the image wander around in my mind for a bit, 

before dreaming up some suitable architecture to complete the scene. I made a version of the temple in Zbrush to help with

perspective and lighting.  Acrylic on canvas

wow, gorgeous! I love the details and soft colors.
And using 3d as reference was really a good idea! It made it easier and much more correct in terms of lighting.

Thanks for that. It's great fun turning drawn ideas into 3d (digital)...I'm still learning but it is very enjoyable. :)

Each painting takes it's own time - sometimes I know what I want straight away, sometimes I experiment as I go. Usually a few days.

What a gorgeous style. The building is falling to one side, that is about the only disturbing thing on this, otherwise it is perfect.

Thanks, I sort of messed with the building so it didn't conform to regular horizontals and verticals. In my own mind it's solid as a rock - just not made like regular buildings. :)

Aha. I thought maybe the rock under it moved a little so it became like that (but it wouldn't be very safe then).
