Okay, I think I am done with this for now.

The idea is to portray a post apocalyptic world and what is once a great monument of mankind is now starting to decay...

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Beautiful image, espacially the colours. Just wondering if a couple of the tower's metal beams should be broken or hanging down due to rusting?

    • Depends on the kind of apocalyose :p

      It's a nice picture, but maybe the tower seems a bit small compared to the vegetation?

    Yea, I notice the scale isn't really accurate compare to the real thing (I forgot to look up reference about it's size) but is the future and anything is possible, just use your imagination. lol
