Pearl of the Silkroad

This piece was inspired by Mughal architecture and orientalist painters, a theme that I deeply love and want to keep exploring!
I am working on a follow-up piece focusing more on story.

This scene is entirely done in Blender with some final edits in Photoshop.
I wanted to challenge myself to tackle larger-scale environments in 3D. The atmosphere is really tricky to get right!

Thanks to all my friends for the feedback!
