Basically it looks good, not sure what the story or use will be so I'm not sure how to comment past that.

Sorry about that, i posted pretty late lastnight. This wall is just a part of the general landscape of a burnt out section of town. It is part of a perimeter wall around a courtyard.

Hope this helps some

Cheers mates

It does help. No problem with the late posting, I think we've all done that at one point or anther.

I would try and make the rebar straighter or bent more. Right now it looks as if it was purposefully positioned the way it is. Rebar usually runs parallel to the ground or perpendicular to the ground. If you bent them a bit more it would look more damaged and realistic.

I reallly was'nt intending for it to be rebar, instead, it was intended to be wood. Although, rebar would look much better now that you mention it.

By the way, whats the best way to make rubble. I need to add a rubble pile of sorts infront and behind the hole. Wood is easy, so is plaster (i simply put some putty on a peice of scrap, let is dry, then sand is over the area i want it at) but what would i use for chunks of brick, stone, etc?

Thanks!

Cheers mates!

If you can, get your hands on some drywall, And go nuts.
Smashing it to bits, and then just scatter it about.
Paint it if you want, but i think it's satisfactory like that.
