I am a big fan of moodboards! Mind you that these are actually two moodboards into one, but that's because we shot both on the same shooting day.
First step: sculpt some ground! Tree added for size :)
Okay, ground is there. Some water too... and I made some stairs similar to the moodboard! But it feels... empty? Time to add vegetation!
Particle systems to the rescue! I weight-painted where I wanted to have vegetation, and used a particle system to generate folliage. I also added some more trees. Copy paste, copy paste..
Certainly getting there! I played with the shaders for the folliage until it did evil things with purple. Also added the model in the scene! Looks cool, certainly works... but.. it is still way too empty! So, I ended up adding more trees, added some fog, then even some more trees, and finally did some post processing in photoshop for some foreground dust and that yielded the end result you see above! The total render time was approx 15 minutes for 5000x4000 pixels.
I love how with these 3D scenes you exactly get what you see.. and absolutely nothing else! There's just no world beyond the camera frame. See below for a zoomed out render of this world. Quite empty, eh? :)
