This rendering was created around the same time the Jindu Pool rendering and Jindu night rendering were made. Similar to many of the renderings I create, this one is almost entirely naturally lit (sun). So much time is saved by just adjusting the sun to enter the space opposed to placing artificial lights (point and spot lights) in a rendering engine which can take forever. If I'm short on time, I will almost always go the naturally lit route. On top of that, I just like the look of cast shadows running across the scene and the warm light from the sun rising and setting.
A lot of people have been asking for more Kerkythea tutorials as well as a more in-depth look at the Jindu night rendering. There is a lot to cover between these two topics, but I hope to begin these videos in January. Let me know if there are any other topics you want to see

The final rendering. A ton of post-processing went into this. It helped that there was some site photos of existing buildings that could be dropped into the background. Many of the techniques used in the Jindu pool rendering to get that "early morning" look were used here as well. More on the Jindu project designed by Paul Lukez Architecture can be found here
