My Nephite Temple
Ok blog buddies. I am finally posting my picture of Nephi's temple, which I drew a few weeks back. What do you think? It is based on a ruin of a temple in Tulum (Central America), seen in the following photo--just a different angle.
I am not sure I like it well enough to use. Nephi writes that he based his temple on the architecture of Solomon's temple, so I am not sure this is close enough. But this was one of the least pyramid-y type ruins I could find to use as a source of inspiration. (**Be sure to read David G. Woolley's comment about Nephi and Solomon's temple--very good info!**)
Other personal critiques I have of it: 1. Should have done palm trees instead of leafy trees and 2. It needs greater contrast.
Maybe I will make one more go of it...
