I decided to have a go at this scene because it would help develop my texturing skills, something I have little experience of, usually using blender for product modelling and design. It came about after a trip to Athens where I managed to grab a few hours to look around. I loved the Plaka area, the Café culture and steep narrow alleyways. The character of the old buildings was fabulous. I have tried to recreate the same sun baked character of the old town.
Some of you may have seen the development of the scene in the Work In Progress thread.Hope you like it.
Reworked image following some sound comments: Removed a number of sharp edges, remapped the stone wall, more plants, improved cliff face and warmed up the lighting.
