It has a great atmosphere, i only find the spotlight to harsh.
If you give this a smooth transition it will be that much better.
Looks great though:attn:

Edit; if you give the spotlights penumbra angle a value of 5 or something and use the drop off y"ll get a smoother transition i think

yeah i think this is already looking very good. i think a few more lights and some sort of background and this will really start to come together.

are you going for a night scene?

Thumbs up Great so far

I don't know how you did that fog but it looks very nice. You should try to decrease it's density a bit in my opinion.
Furthermore, the rest of the environment is totally dark... Try to put some vague light so the rest of the room will be a bit visible.

I'm glad you decided to follow my advice .

EDIT: Try to break the edges of the doorway a bit. It may look nice.

try adding a low intensity ambient light, because now the transition is to harsh between the light and shadow.
As for the image you placed as a background i would only use the mountain then create a sphere asign a shader with a transparencyramp going from black to purple and on the colorchannel slap a granite(tweak the granite texture to a black background with white dots-simulating stars- on it.
You can also create a moon which emanates a slight blueish light(if i'm not mistaken)
Just spice things up and you will have a
great scene

Exclamation Very Nice

*The view from the doorway is poor... only the mountain is visible and it it takes a lot of space and looks poor...
*I also agree with Maston about the light as I suggested earlier.
*Try removing that barely visible obstacle on the right and continue the floor and pillars to the right so it doesn't look so empty.
I'll attach an image explaining what I meant in the LAST TIP.

the coloring/texturing looks pretty good, aside from the above I think your ready for your final .

Hi Semeon
Are you going to post a final entry? I hadn't seen any progress in 2 weeks . I'm really looking forward to seeing it finished... In my opinion you've done the best scene.
Benny
