Here's my influence map of different pictures. They mainly consist of temples and mountain scenery as that at the moment are my main focuses for my pieces. The bottom right corner one is by Shaddy Safadi and is my main influence for mountain/ ruined city setting. The top left one is a ruined city, and i like the way the atmosphere has been created through tone and mist effect. That is what i want for my piece to give the city a feel of mystery and loneliness.
I looked at different temples and the surroundings and chose those i felt related best to the one in my story, ones with tiers and stairs looked most impressive.
