The Temple of Doom by alserov
This picture was made for self-promotion, to be a part of my portfolio.
Some elements were roughly rendered in Cinema 4D first. No textures were applied at this point; I just wanted to establish basic shapes and the light scheme. Then I started to paint in Photoshop. I used textured brushes a lot. Stucco textures were particularly useful. The lasso tool also proved to be invaluable.
And of course, I should mention that the photo of the girl was taken by me. Nobody’s copyright has been infringed.
