    Suppose I'm going to have issue with that, I don't think tea and jam sandwiches are very sacred to others outside of Mid Lothian.

    I like the idea of this but think you're coming at it from a boring angle. Maybe try a view from down in a corner or up at the ceiling looking down, or through one of the windows.

    I also like Elwell's suggestion about mixing elements from Classical and Eastern architecture. That could be really interesting.

    I wont comment on your ideas about the deity because it sounds like you're still trying to figure that out. But I will say in general that you're capable of much more than what you're showing in here, so push yourself, try some crazy mishmashes of cultures and religions and architecture etc, and see what you come up with.

    Good luck!

    Giving up to start on something else less boring and mundane sorry to waste everyone's time.

    Throwing out drawings and ideas is just part of the process. So your first one didn't work - get some reference, and explore new expressions of that original idea of drawing a desert temple. (Thumbnail, thumbnail, thumbnail.)

    It's not a waste of anybody's time, especially yours. It's just part of the process.

    Not going to be able to sleep anytime soon so did some more thumbnails. First one basically the same building but less face on angle. Second one outdoor shrine which most japanese one are. Mushed some Torii with columns and a mosiac pathway.
    Need to come back and do the plantlife and so on. Seeing as a desert temple would probably be in an oasis if there was a water source.

    Better angles and compositions over all. I am not sure which one I prefer, probably the top one has the most potential but I like the design of the second with the cloth.

    I would look at water features, fountains, man-made waterfalls, water displays, they might give you some interesting ideas for decoration and interiors.

    Yeah, they've both got potential. The architecture fan in me loves the first one for the strong uprights caused by the columns. But I also like the idea of the second with the flowing cloth flags.

    I guess it's up to you which one you go for, and this thread definitely wasnt a waste of my time or anyone elses I don't think. We're all in here brainstorming together after all.

    Good luck with this and I'll be looking out to see where you go with it.

    @Rachel Pierce: Thanks, a man made waterfall might be nice although just have a flat one might look odd, although it leaves more space for mosaics and pretty patterns. Having a short one and some clouds in the backround might give it a sense of openness. hms.

    @Candra H:I'm glad you like them. Eh, might end up doing both for different reasons. Need to tidy up the first idea properly though.

    I know it sounded like fishing for sympathy but I am genuinely that self depreciating that I dislike wasting people's time on things for myself or that involve me. To be honest it's best to ignore me when I say things like that as I get over it pretty quickly and get back to drawing.

    So thank you everyone for your comments so far, I appreciate the time taken.
