That's the messiest scene I've seen, can't wait for it to be finished.

I hope you do a then and now shot later, would be great to see the comparison.

Danny, they were 3 quid each :)

Mr Wolf, do you want a shot of the completed backscene?

George,

That scenery is gonna be awesome when it's finished. Hell, it's pretty damn good now as it is! It really gives a great feeling of perspective and depth. Superb mate!

Thanks Tim :)

I've added some plantlife, with Noch scatter. I was unhappy with the brightness of the rocks, so i gave them a wash with some black ink. I think it turned out OK :wink:

One area was repainted as I was unhappy with the distribution of scatter - it was too even. See, even the pros make mistakes :lol: ;)

There's also a wash/unwash comparison in one of the pics.

Doc I'd consider removing a fair bit or all of that greenery.

It's too dark and there's too much of it.. It was looking really good and effective before, but the feel has been ruined by them in my opinion.

Maybe worth considering...

Hmmm, maybe you're right.

It just felt too empty before, it needed something green :(

I agree with Honeywell.

You could try and get some Cactus-es-i ( :oops: ) though, I'm sure they'd look good. Especially with some shrubbery (?) around the bases.

nice picsd but i thin it has lost the feeling, cactusis would be good with some tumbleweed

Also someones drawn a red line across the layout :D

I have to agree about the green stuff not looking right, though I'm not an expert on American desert topography. I'd go with the Cactii and tumbleweed suggestion too.

Also the green stuff seems to be spread too uniformly.

Sorry to be negative but I think it's easily remedied and the layout has great potential.
