NURBs and Polygons - Temple

A snapshot after completing the modeling and textures but still using the default lighting.

The temple is exclusively polygons, while the landscape is two NURBs planes. Much of the temple's look comes from a combination of two separate textures. For example the "dusty gold" stairs combine a "stone wall" and "gold metal" shader.

Beginning lighting: A yellow spotlight and what became the final red ambient lighting. The background "sky" is an image file on a polygon plane.

After softening the yellow spotlight, and adding a light to the "all seeing eye".

Lastly, a soft spotlight was added to the right to bring out some of the columns color and texture on the right side.
