I like everything about it except the bridge, which looks a lot like a sushi mat. Not saying it couldn't be made to look more like a bridge but at the moment it seems a bit incongruous.

I really like the tire tracks on the mud. Very detailed. The sushi mat does look a bit out of place though; you can use plasticard to build a very good bridge and their are a lot of recipes for bridges on the internet. It's pretty great though.

OK guys,
Thanks for the feedback.
I was going for an "African" theme.
Should I put posts at the ends of the bridge?

Bridge looks too weedy to support even heavy foot traffic, let alone two Rhinos, being perfectly flat and unsupported. I think a bit of additional structure, either above or below it, is necessary. Doesn't need to be fancy - just a small framework of metal girders or some supporting wood (logs or square timber) pylons would do the trick.

Aside from that, it's looking good. I like the placement and size of the small stands of tall grass and the tracks in the groundwork are a nice touch. I was worried about the water in the first shot, but after some additional color variation and a gloss coat, it's shaped up nicely. There's always room for improvement, of course, but the bridge is my only distinct criticism, at this point.

Great lay out and concept. Tire tracks are well done, but I agree that the bridge needs supports, Maybe suspension bridge style posts and ropes. Also if it is muddy enough to leave such deep tire tracks then I would expect to see a lot of mud on the bridge as well.

I really enjoy the alligator and hippo!

Mud on the bridge!!!
Excellent catch!
I was thinking some sort of posts as well.
You can't see them but there are 3 wooden supports running along the underside of the bridge...maybe some gussetts?
