EOW: In the Hall of the Mountain King: steps

EOW: 160:  In the Hall of the Mountain King

This is an environment I did for the Environment of the week activity on ConceptArt.org. I started with building a 3D scene in 3DS Max so it would be easier to set a nice composition. 

Render of the finished scene. I also rendered everything separately on layers so it would be much simpler to adjust the colour, texture, ... of the different assets in the scene.

I wanted to go for a happy mood, children playing with their grand-father, the King.

I had to change the whole idea though because I was running out of time so I chose for a more easier approach. "A mad King finally succeeds making contact with outer space".

Adding more details to the scene and trying to make it less '3D scene' looking. Final.
