So this is a rough for the interior of the church’s main room. While working on it I thought a lack of seats might make the main statue area more imposing. That combined with a higher level would fit more worshipers in it.
I sat down and cleaned up the boat from the last picture. They are based off boats from Ancient Egypt and Venice. The idea is two people sit in them and it’s well cushioned. Then a servant would push and steer the boat by standing at the platform on the end.
Since the wealthy are taking tiny boats through the delta to get around thought I’d design the little areas where they can board and onboard. The bridges also needed to be high enough to account for flooding. I should probably make them a little higher.
The main market is the front of the church. So I wanted to do the main area for socializing and have like a platform for more public shows and events. I got to do a few more angles to work it out fully.
And like I did with the palace I wanted a top view before beginning work on the interior.
