Carved Temple

A recent practice piece that actually started as a doodle in Photoshop playing around with the idea of a carved temple inspired by Petra. But instead of being carved from a rock, a temple is carved from a massive tree. Anyway, it's a visdev idea that might come in handy for another project in the future.

That's beautiful! I can't help thinking of the various sorts of temples that could be carved from the various sorts of big trees - taking into character the trees themselves. Imagine what the temple of a gigantic weeping willow would look like...all gloriously light and airy with walls of interwoven branches.

Thank you for being an inspiration!

Very cool concept....love that thick inky linework, and those subtle clouds in the distance.
