When I finished the planning process, I separated every layer and I grouped them by location. I always do this step, as it allows me to work more easily. Usually there are three or four groups; this time I used four. Everything was in the fourth group, which was located behind the basic picture; in the third group there was the basic picture with the two chimneys; in the second group there was the temple and both sides of the cave; and finally in the first group there were the things that are placed the closest to us (Fig.07).

'Painting' with Photos

In my opinion the real challenge started now. I began to build up the picture from my stocks (Fig.08 - 11). To create pictures from photos, first of all you will need a certain number of useful stocks. Finding a good quality picture is usually very difficult, but there are several websites which can guarantee high quality stock photos (e.g., www.3dtotal.com or www.cgtextures.com). In my opinion you cannot have enough resources because the more options you have to choose from, the more unique and more detailed result you will get. If photos are merged you have to pay attention to achieving the correct perspective, scale and lighting.
