Bonsais needed rocks, rocks needed roots, needed water, needed a bridge. Then it all became a zen garden, for a jewel. Then I wrote jewellery in japanese on the sign post. So the render had to be 8K, so the sign could be read.
It is the first time I publish an isometric view. The final scene is 1.8 GB
EDIT: I now also made a version without the ring, it finally melted down in the sand, and disappeared
4K compressed, no ring version
8K at http://www.centrodearteydiseno.com/images/vno2-JAPANESE-BRIDGE-POSTER-8K.png
ORIGINAL (as a white gold ring in it, because it all started with this as a jewellery scene) Small version, compressed 4K
Take a look at the 8K even if you can’t read japanese…
The final scene is only 15 millions faces, it had 40 millions before “optimizing”
Final art, 8K 7680x7680 - the image weights slightly less than 100MB
Everything in this scene, everything, I modeled using Blender 2.93. The only thing I did outside of Blender, is compositing the very many layers.
Textures are all fotos from my personal library.
A ceramic vase with fish scales pattern, a white gold ring with diamonds, water lilies , reeds, a small japanese red bridge, bonsais, a zen sand garden, asmall river, rocks, bamboos, simple wooden arquitecture, paper lamps with ropes, decorative flag, and last but not least, the colored clouds.
The main initial render took 5 hours to render, then I made several renders of foreground and backgrounds object to adapt and correct very specific details here and there.
I made several versions of every cloud, then adjusted them into place. The final render as very few touch-ups using my Wacom.
Enjoy this little zen garden.

I might publish some parts of the making, as I recorder some of the early stages.
