I wanted to do something different and just as a balance to all my other images. So, I decided to model a low-poly landscape with a dragon. I tried to finish the image quickly and it was a good break from all the other projects which I usually handle over weeks. Given that the surface is so simple, I tried to play a little bit with the materials and put in a certain paper structure.
Since I watched ‘Lord of the Rings’, I had this moody scene in my mind. I tried to depict this mood. I wanted to play with lights and glow. Most of the modeling was done by me except some assets were downloaded from tf3dm as free models and heavily modified.
Overall, great fun and less work for a timeless look.
