Thumbs up

Impressive use of the rock formations and texturing features. And talk about an understatement of calling a stone fountain a goblet (I wonder what they would call a whistle or a chair; snicker). Although I see what you were going for (not criticizing, just thought it was funny and ironic). I like the crow on top of it (makes it look less sterile). I think my favorite parts are the textures on the front rocks on the left, the crow and the mountains in the far background. I will say that the stone stairs probably should've looked more like they were carved from the mountain. Instead they look like someone carved the tunnel and installed the stairs (the edges of the stairs don't match or really connect with the sides of the mountain; especially near the top where shadows around the edges of the stairs really make it look separate). Overall, though, it looks like a pretty successful piece. Keep it up. Great job.
