it was a big challenge to create the vegetation and this hard land scape so i tried my best using zbrush for sculpting and maya 2017 (arnold 5 for rendering). i hope you like it.

the trees (olive tree) is from speedtree but i re- texture it again because there is no export in maya arnold, some rocks are from quixel megascans and again textured in maya. the lighting in the scene is very simple i have used only two arnold lights inside the houses and a skydome for exterior. grass was possible because of the xgen plugin. and i have used z brush for the shell of the houses and some rocks…and very small details in photoshop if you spot it you are very good and me bad..

thanks for your time..
