It can be very hard to make layered flat rocks like this look good. You’ve done a good job with it. Likewise I like your large “trees” and vines. I don’t like the small trees though. They don’t really convey the perspective I think you are trying for... they just look small.

Quite interesting work very full and rich in detail. Sometimes the excess of detail leaves the layout tiring because we do not know where to look. Although the rocks have a purpose in being ladder shaped I believe that the layout were with a slightly artificial appearance. As a point of attention I highlight the proportion between plants especially on the left side of the layout. Some are out of size causing a sense of disproportion. But it is a very well executed work that denotes a lot of technique. Well done!!!

Great job! The scene is slightly disrupted with the extended stones angle being upward while those building up to it are all downward. Very nice detail work.
— Jeff Miotke
I think this works well as a fantasy aquascape. The silhouette and dawn/dusk effect is very nice.
