wow, im surprised my pc didnt explode!!!
i started working on this today, and have put a few hours on it already. basically, its just a field full of grass with a stone wall and a really cool gate.
as to why i thought my pc would explode, i have managed to get over 1million polys (thanks to array modifiers working with curve modifiers, check first image), so i think i need to go simpler with it.
the image below is just a glimpse of the wall and a bit of the field (mostly done with the modifiers). i would post a view of the gate, but im afraid that id need to remove the modifiers to reduce the polys to be able to move the camera around.
most of the modelling is done (including an ogham stone), i just need to extend everything beyond the cameras view and perfect the ground.
after that ill start working on the lighting and shadows to get a good scene.
