Materials

I used V-Ray for the render. For materials (Fig.05 - 06), I like to use color correction to make the saturation vary and to obtain the light independently. Often, I use the reflection in all my materials, because that offers a more homogenous making. For the ground, I used 2D displacement to give more volume to the rock.

Duplication

I duplicated the different houses (Fig.07) to offer the maximum depth to the image. Then, I added all the small details, such as the stairs.

Point of View

I wanted my point of view to match Sparth's concept, but not entirely because I prefer to use 3D to have a more elusive line (with the focal lens of the camera) to bring a personal touch (Fig.08).

Camera

I used a V-Ray camera with a little vignette effect to blacken the borders and focus the point of view. I put the shutter speed and ISO with these values to have a somber enough result and some contrast, but not too much (Fig.09).

This is a great overview of your process but I think in order for it to be considered a tutorial more details should be included. You mention how you created the building fronts and structures but really don't show anything other than the wireframes. If a beginner tries this tutorial they would have several missing steps and wouldn't get very far. The render looks fantastic and I think your set up is great but again I think this is more of a production overview and NOT a tutorial.

Really Impressive work considering the simple buildings but yet high sense of detail. Tutorials also very good for a Noobie and I'll be sure to recommend. Thanks for sharing your workflow. :)
