Default WIP - Mountain Temple

Hi guys. This is the first time trying out this contest. What an awesome idea! I really love the time constraint! I decided to take a more game development approach to this challenge. I modeled a few modular pieces and constructed my scene in UDK.

The idea for the composition was a perspective shot from a pilgrim who just made an epic journey to this mountain temple. This would be the first moment when the temple comes into view after that journey.

First step i took was to sketch out some thumbnail ideas to get some ideas on paper. Sorry for the crap image. I took a picture of the sketches on my phone.

I took a little bit from each thumbnail, but settled on the lower left for the composition. It seemed to be the most mountain temply.

I took that thumb into photo shop and just played with a bit more ideas. Nothing fancy. I was just trying to feel out the composition a bit more and clear up the image in my head.

I modeled up a few props, which I will have to post later. Basically it was 2 rocks, a stair piece, a wall, a gate, 3 temple chunks, and a stick. I brought them in to UDK and started to block out the shapes i was going for and feel out a compostion.

Then it was a matter of reusing, adujusting, and refining the look. I played with lighting and tried to capture a bit more of the feel from the thumbnail.

Here is my latest WIP

The two elements I would like to add if I have time are birds above the temple circling and prayer flags blowing in the wind along the stairway. Not sure how much time I will have though over the next couple days. I will do what I can. Id love to hear any feedback. Im here to learn and grow! Thanks for checking my stuff out!
