More skyscrapers

I used the same method to create the other skyscrapers.

Smaller elements

Here you can see some other small Lego-type elements like roads and objects floating in the water.

On the X-shaped feature in this scene, you can see some small extruded polygons. I made these with a plug-in called Greeble. This is an awesome old-school plug-in and it's so much fun to use.

Trees and people

When I finished building up the towers and roads, I scattered some generic trees from one of the Evermotion collections, and a few low poly people around the buildings. As it turns out they are barely visible and are only seen if you zoom in.

Render setup

These are the render settings I used for this image its pretty basic as you can see. After a 4-hour render, I had the base for the post-processing.
