hey man

i mean that the maya calender is not part of the picture. the calender dont have any visual attachments to the scene. Its in the BG between the trees...may you can add a socket or something. at the moment it looks off the scene. (maybe too dark) somethings is strange with the object.

But i like your picture...and hope i can help you a little bit. be careful with the layer blends.

Its not the main subject in the scene and it is in a darker part of the forest. My personal feeling is that its actually part of the scene, just as much as i intended too. When i thought about what you said, i understood what you meant, but a stone like that could stand like that for numerous reasons. If there is a big stone behind the calender it would hold it up.

I showed it like this because the calender is always shown like this. Sometimes is has some broken stuff around it, but they never show an support from underneath it. The stone itself has some serious weight, so it could use itself as support as well. It doesn't bother me, but i understand what you mean.

Here are some picture that show the calender without a real support to hold it up.

Hi,

Well.. i searched on the mayan calender and everywhere on the internet they say its the mayan calender. Doesn't really matter what its called because the theme is about maya/aztek culture...

Hi Everybody,

I updated some small elements. Not really visible in the smaller version. The spiderwebs are visible. I added some spiderwebs to give it a little bit more lost in time feel. Its a small elements, but hope you like it. I also wrote a small story for the picture. Sometimes i have the need to right something with a picture, because art is a big part of emotion...
