This is one of the best setup I ever see here. It is very very creative.
Can you tell me where have you found the water lilys?
Thanks. :)

The two types of lily are sculpted by me a few years back when I started playing with clay.

I've only done a little sculpting since those pieces, but I did make a set of the small lily pads as a gift for one of our favorites here on the forum. It was a one time thing for Feymous, when I visited the last Forum Member Game here in Seattle this summer. :)

Thanks for sharing all the "Progress" pictures. Im stealing so many of these ideas. The ramps as "lintels" above the columns, the Dias pieces inverted on one another ( I may not even have enough daises ..). I really like the ramp ways sandwiched between the opposing sets of stairs.

I just ordered a set of straight daises :lol: Congrats on doing DF's job for them ;)

Really fantastic work! Mind blown. And I had high expectations from all the teasers.

Version-1 and v-2 were really just works-in-progress to get to the end. Once I got that far on my plan, the temple end of it seemed quite sparse and I just thought that area needed more umph than that. So you see in version two I was still working out the look of the taller two middle buildings. If I would have been happy with v-1, I would have continued on filling at that point. I had v-1 done a week or so into August, but I was no where happy with it to post, as you see in the final layout posts.

I will be adding a bit of "mayhem"

into the scene,but it will be at least a week before I can get to it.

Again, thanks for looking. :)

The more I look the more I see, and that is the mark of a great build.

It's cool to see what makes the difference between a really good build (these pics) and an EPIC build (your final ones).
