It's a government building, where the banks transfer money and gold, There are armored cars (?) and motorcycles with side-cars, I can imagine. Maybe a spy spying on another spy. It is chilling!
Carrara for the ropey columns, Poser for the figure, Brycelighting, booleans and lattices to make the space.
And the excellent stone texture from www.animax.it. Thanks, animax!

You're good. And you've given me more to aspire too.... even though it's gonna take a while for me to catch up. Great work! Be proud.

Cool facade, neat architecture. You might try taking the ambience out of the leaf material, I don't know why they put it in there in the first place. Maybe to simulate translucency in the leaves. Anyway, your setting is well done.

fantastic use of texture... IMHO, since your setting is very symetrical, you may try a full frontal view =_= to highlight symetry (with someone at one of the balcony to add an eyecatcher?)

Yes!! My inner voice just told me that all of the garden placard busts I saw growing up were - BORING! They had nuttin' to add, other than just sitting there trying to look pretty. Congrats on another great one!

animax seems pretty cool. your textures are always great. yes as always; your architectural skills are grand! What's the purpose of the rod in hand? just wonderin'.

thank you everyone! your comments are provokiing many thoughts. the version just before had no figure, and now i think the figure is a problem! i have no idea why i made that rod in hand! except it was challenging to get it into his hand, and his face needed more light, and it's nice to have a visible light source. i hope you have as much fun viewing, as i have making! :))
