Ruins from an ancient civilization whose magic is still functioning, if only in keeping a single arch standing.
I like landscape pictures, and this was a good chance to try out a few techniques I've been learning recently. This one made me do a lot of work on using lattices and custom terrain objects for use as props. I made all of the objects you can see in the image here. The stairs in the background were done for another project I started a couple years ago but haven't yet finished (it's a huge modeling project). The vines growing on the architecture were generated using a nice little program that lets you import objects and then project ivy leaves growing on them. You can find it here, if you're interested. The lighting is done via HDRI.
