To Become a God

"Journeying into the deep forgotten undergrowth of the forest, the explorers happen upon their quarry at last. The Great Altar and portal to the next realm; the center of the once magnificent empire, brought down by greed, on a quest to become gods. Those who carry the rod of sunlight are said to activate the door to the next world, granting ascension to a higher plane of reality."

The top image is the latest cover for Firestarter community magazine, which you can find at many of the community concept events globally!

The altar textures are inspired by the gold patterns of Gustav Klimt- most of this scene was sculpted in VR using Oculus Medium.
