Circle of Stones

Hi everyone!
I will be showing my progress on this environment I am working on, Critiques are more than welcome!

The idea is to create something in between the megalithic temple of Malta and the temple of the Druids.

Lighting and post effects are standard.

2c: Try and Keep it looking as organic as possible. At the moment it looks a bit artificial.
Sometimes the surrounding landscape / foliage is just as important to ‘selling the effect’…
I would add both right now, not leave it till later, even if that runs counter to your plans:

Work on the level is in full swing. But in the end you should get something like this:

Only instead of plance I plan to use luminouse crystals. As in this screenshot:

I have added sand, stones and crystals.

When compared to the newly added surrounding rocks I feel that the standing stones look a little small, and hence don’t stand out as much (as they might). I think I would have scaled up the standing stones a little bit (or scaled down the surrounding rocks) to make the standing ones the more dominant in the scene. I don’t know if that’s what you want though.
