Hey guys, im working on this level and need some input from anyone before I start modeling the detailed version.

Level

Im open to ANY suggestions.

What type of game is it?

Jul 30 2013, 8:42pm Anchor

This is for my Final animation project

Jul 30 2013, 9:15pm Anchor

Is it an FPS, 1v1 fighter, rpg?  Or are you just trying to make it look good?

Jul 30 2013, 10:36pm Anchor

Its an animation, not a game.

Im a 3D student and we have to do our final animation project.

If you have any suggestions please do.

What kind of animation is happening in there, hard to give any tips, judging just from this scene.

You are inexperienced and you should keep your mouth shut if you don't want to end up as laughing stock of the community trying to give advice to other people on a subject you know nothing about. A friendly but fair warning.

Any critique is valuable, So keep it coming

If at all possible can you show the wireframe veiw and perhaps your rigging settup ?
Looks wise its difficult,  placed as you have multiple trees within your scenefile its going to be a headache if your rigging isnt up to the task... 
To help animate your trees consider reducing the polycount of those and using larger planes with textures, use bumpmaps(or normal),optionally[specular],diffuse and opacity (alpha map).
260,000 polygons is pretty detailed already , however your composition does have some small flaws : The eye reads from left to right ( if your a westerner such as I ) and it tends to find things to look upon as you scan across, things that are brighter have more attention your brighter part on the left under the tree will need attention with either decreasing its lighting on that spot or fixing it up after your render in a program such as Avidemux (freeware).
Alternately have a subject use that area.. and people will not miss it .. even if its a small charector.

Side note, tree's growing on rocks are definately cool though please add more tree roots like your tree at the front.

Personally, I think the background looks good, but the foreground is lacking detail and a focal point.  Not fully sure what I'm supposed to look at first.  I THINK it's the Easter Island head, but it's too small compared to it's surroundings.

shadowflar you have had so much shit sent your way i cant believe you have the guts to keep  it up

I do not deny evil, nor do I believe that any human is completely free of malice. Everything must be in balance. As long as evil and good maintain an equilibrium in this world there is no problem. Perfect balance is the key to everything.

try posting your stuff at 11secondclub rather than here
you'll get a WAY better expertise and comments than those you can get here regarding animation and filming.
