Bexar Dawn

March 6, 1836 Dawn

March 6, 1836 Dawn

The final battle of the Alamo occurred in the hour before dawn on March 6, 1836.  This image depicts what San Antonio de Bexar might have looked like on such a morning.  The view is from an elevated position just west of the Main Plaza.  The San Fernando church is flying the red flag of “no quarter.”  In the distance you can see the Alameda, Watch Tower and Alamo.  You can barely see a glint of sunlight reflection in places along the San Antonio River.

This render made with Blender Cycles.  Textures made with Allegorithmic Substance Designer and Painter.  HDRI from Hyperfocal Design.

Trees, foliage. stones and fences were instanced using Blender particles.  The foreground ground textures were improved from the low res versions used previously.  Ruts in the roadway and plaza may be seen.
