Temple of Barrakis
OK, here's another temple I started working on while trying to work out exactly what I want to do with my Tomival Temple.
Here we have a temple to Barrakis - God of Serpent-kind, murder, violence etc. and so forth. This temple is dedicated to his aspect of Lord over all serpents, etc.
I may or may not enter this in the ICE contest, if nothing else it can be used somewhere in the CWBP.
As always C&C is welcomed.
VERY nice. Where did you get the statues? They are pretty cool.
I think this is a decent temple, SG, but I think your Moon Temple has more potential, but that's just me. I like your main cobra statue!
Don't feel you have to rush getting an entry into the I.C.E. Map Contest - the deadline isn't until January 31, 2009 - that's over 2 months away!
Just because I work inhumanly fast and have an entry already, doesn't mean you should feel you got to rush a temple in.
Create the perfect temple and beat the pants off me!
Good luck in whichever way you decide to go!
@JFJr - Thanks...
@GP - Oh I'll finish the moon temple and enter it - I really like the idea, this is just something to do at work when it's slow (or the boss is on vacation :D). I work on the Moon temple at home in the evenings/weekends.
Actually, before I started on the Moon temple I was going back and forth between doing that and something for this diety. Heck, we have that entire pantheon in the CWBP and nary (sp?) a temple for any of the members.
The snake statues are from Dundjinni - love that place for this kind of stuff. I even downloaded a 2-headed cobra that if I'm not mistaken RobA did.
I'm pretty happy with this so far though the steps leading up to the main statue need a bit of work, they are a bit tricky as I created them from the attached image and am having trouble getting the shadowing to work correctly.
Pretty cool G. Might want to put a blur on the outside terrain so that the eye focuses more on the interior, but heck, I can't do anything like this so ... you know ... disregard if ya want :)
Thanks...I'm not even sure I'll keep that terrain on the outside, it's just there to make it easier on my eyes to work.

Another idea - get rid of those flagstones on your temple floor. Go find a splayed snake skin. Use the scales as cobblestones, insure mortaring exists between everystone (like a floor, unlike the snakeskin) and use appropriately colored stones and have a snake skin design in the stone floor itself.
Just an idea!
Got a few pics which might help - maybe.
