What a beautiful part of the forest!
Very dynamic layout and full of details with excellent shadow work and good side reflections. Perfect proportions!
I really liked the natural atmosphere imprinted in this work. The only observation I make refers to the front part which could be better worked with more details and the use of decorative gravel to maintain the same level of detail as the rest of the work!
Congratulations you have skills!

Your freely arranged aquatic plants look incredibly artistic. While the layout might seem chaotic this work doesn't appear disorderly at all; instead it looks rich and diverse. The color scheme is beautiful and it's hard to find any faults. You've done an exceptional job. Thank you for sharing this fantastic piece and congratulations!

Materials In this tank I used rosemary woods, dragon skin woods and volcanic rocks from the "ETNA" volcano (Sicily)
Additional Information I wanted to create this type of layout because from the beginning the aim was to recreate a tree that is cut down after a terrible storm and that as usual nature always has the upper hand as despite the tree being cut down it remains covered in moss and plants. I tried not to exaggerate too much with science fiction, but from the beginning I aimed to reproduce a style that was as natural as possible. I hope you like this tank.
