The Fourth Temple from the iconic Nintendo 64 game, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Prints available at https://www.redbubble.com/people/tomgardenart/works/33967262-the-shadow-temple?asc=u&ref=recent-owner
Here's the finished painting. It was created using an original screenshot of the temple from the game, and then redesigned in a way reminiscent of the original.
Due to the complexity of drawing the torches in 2d, It was faster to do a quick model in Maya. I used my ground design to lay out the torches so I could light them.
From there, I took a screenshot and brought it in to Photoshop.

When reoccuring patterns are used in a painting in perspective, it helps to design them front on first and then alter the perspective in the paint.

Here is a .gif showing you some steps taken to create this painting.
You will notice I took out the torches and changed the lighting scheme half way through. I realised that the main lighting would actually be the glow of the script on the ground.
