It wouldn't be too bad for a low-detail environment. I think the #1 issue is the ground texture; its too stretched in some places and really would have benefit from a little bump mapping or displacement for the darkened areas. It looks way too flat where it shouldn't be. The statue looked ok, but it was way too detailed in comparison to the rest of the environment; i'm a strong believer in keeping your detail level consistent in animations... but that's just my opinion. I don't think the volumetric-like beams from the eyes worked well either.

I also didn't feel the music really fit too well, its tempo and pace felt jarring compared to the slow camera movement and calm scene.

more detail needed on some parts and also lose the walkthrough camera. Compose some shots
