The Cinnabar Cathedral

Final Painting for The Cinnabar Cathedral

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.

The aim of this project was to explore the use of 3d for concept and illustrative purposes. It was a lot of fun to problem solve through Blender whilst considering how I could generate useful by-products for a team environment alongside developing an illustrative piece.
