Cinnabar Cathedral Concepts

Cinnabar Cathedral environment concepts.

The Cinnabar Cathedral is a unique structure built high into the skies so that it's monks inside can be amongst the heavens during their meditations. These devotees seek audience with their God through astrological means, looking to gain knowledge of other planets so that they can harness the potential of the corresponding metals back on earth in order to carry out their Lord's will.
The Cathedral itself is built atop a mine, where Cinnabar rocks are extracted by the lowly members of the sect who follow in the footsteps of their prophet who was whispered the secrets of Mercury inside the Cathedral's observatory.

Early exploration and experimentation with 3d tools to see how ideas can be quickly generated for concept work. My goal here was focusing on speed and exploring workflows that could give me quick results for iteration.
