An Ionic-style Greek Column is one of the first objects I ever attempted to model in 3D. So I decided to test my current skill level by modeling this column from scratch, using multiple sources of inspiration from multiple Google Image Searches.
I combined numerous design styles, especially for the decorative elements, in order to create my own design for the structure.
The texture is a simple Procedural Marble, created using Blender's Shader Node Editor (see below).
