The hanging gardens of Babylon by lunar-eclipse The hanging gardens of Babylon by lunar-eclipse
My interpretation of the hanging gardens of Babylon...I know they look more like an overgrown orchard or something...but that's just what I imagine them to be like.

The hanging gardens of Babylon by ~lunar-eclipse is a lovely scenery that is both creative and well executed. ( Suggested by H34 and Featured by armaina )
You are in luck, I am able to post this earlier!

The more artwork I see of haning gardens (of Babylon) the more I get inspirted to do this myself once as well. Thisone, with its pretty waterfalls, layers and isometry is one of those as well now :)

There are however a lot of things that bother me. You tried to save a lot of time by doing a symetric design, but even worse: You copy and pasted a lot. Some things could have been less obvious if you flippeld them. But epspecially on the textrures and on the trees it is very noticable.
Why those textures anyway? They are way too much repeated, and the sides are completely flat. I suppose you could have gotten a better result if you had put some more time in it, and did all textures without copy and pasting.

Whats with the modern building thing in the middle? The place is perfect, but the modernity does not completely fit the theme in my opinion.

I really like the grass and the flowers, and of course the hanging vines or whatever you cal 'm. The flowers are especially great on the platforms with the piramids!
The water texture is also great! But why is it on the roof, and are those black dots sharks?

As I said: Inspiring work, mostly due the waterfalls and the layers!
What do you think?

It looks really fantastic. Like SNES-ish or something like that. Admirable.

The reason for the gardens being built was due to Nebuchadnezzar's queen becoming home sick. She missed the mountains, trees and animals.
