Temple of the Old gods

This is officially my first photo manipulation that is not a recreation of a tutorial and also my first contest entry. The contest is hosted by Olgola www.deviantart.com/olgola and has the theme of the old gods www.deviantart.com/olgola/jour…

When making this photo manipulation I wanted to create a scene that looks like a sacred, ancient and mystical place, almost like a sacred garden. I used the Iokharic font to write on various pieces present in the image to give the look of an ancient language and civilization. The statues seem to come to life, and there are two ancient spectral warriors guarding the portal to the realm of the old gods (they are not easily noticeable, zoom to the center to discover them).
I added some fantasy and mystical symbolism using the hourglass with sand that is still dripping on the right statue, and torches that are still flaming on the left statue.

The whole project took me about a week and consisted of a lot of trial and error, but I love how it came out, a lot <3 
Not only that, this is also my first photo manipulation that can be purchased as print! If you like what I’m doing, you can consider supporting me by buying one of my photo manipulations as a print, make sure to take a picture when you get it :D
