Ah why not :) Hopefully I will finish this one!

Here is the original frame taken from google. This is Katherine Gorge in Western Australia.

And here is my concept drawing proving I can't draw!

I am cheating a little bit here by building the settlement into the river so I don't have to match geometry quite as much. I hope this is OK for the animation.

I will also add a spaceship landing.

A really quick update. I hhave matched soem approximate geometry. (just planes and then point tweaking). I will definitely use it for shadow collection (in Maya this is done with the Use Background matterial). I don't know if I will animate the camera yet though.

No screenshot yet, but I tried adding a bit of displacement to my canyon walls to make them a bit more complex and Maya's renderer sucks at dispalcement!

Will start modelling the complex soon.
