How do video game artists learn to draw specific types of architecture? Do they do it by looking at books with pictures of buildings or what because I've been trying to draw oriental temples and I'm having a tough time finding these buildings on the internet for trying to draw this stuff in detail. I did find this one site though http://www.orientalarchitecture.com/

Art History.

There's an entire field of academic study devoted to the documentation of various artistic forms and their relationships to culture, era, politics, etc. Go to a bookstore and ask for art history books, you'll find an abundance of reference material for most cultures (and most of those books will be cross-indexed under architecture as well - my sister, an architect, has a bunch of them).

Take your time, however. Study and grasp the fundamental principles of the architecture from a specific place and time, otherwise you'll create frankenbuildings that undermine your artistic vision.

Good luck!
