I'm inclined to agree about the darker stones. I've done my initial test-builds/prints and then done some revisions...the grid doesn't show up at all on the test-print, that tile is just a big greenish blur (upper right in the pics) so I played with some settings for better contrast and the result of darkening the difference clouds layer is in the lower right...didn't look right, so I played with some other settings (levels, clouds overlay) and got a brighter less muddier tile, but still too orangey-gold (the ones on the left). Needs a little more just plain white in the mix.
I've done some minor tweaks to the stones to balance the colors, moved a flap, brightened the moss on the fallen and broken pillar segments, and added glowing eyes to the figures in the pillars so they'd be more apparent. So those are done and their styles are set. I'll make the rougher style of big standing obelisk tonight and apply these styles and techniques to them so they'll match.
Then I'll draw a magical pentagram in a circle to drop into the pieces with the clearings. Closer...
I like were your going with this Eric. I'd like to see a bigger monolith as well, and I like the standing rocks to. How about making some snow covered terrain. Most everyone who makes tiles make grass, dirt and dungeon tiles but you don't see much in the snow covered plains or rocky terrain. I think that you could really fill a need there. Just a thought.

They actually tile pretty well, not 100% seamless, but better than many proffessional tiles I've purchased, so that makes me pretty happy.
Still working on the other tile styles, worked through a good stone texture and made more pillars. Started to make a bigger pillar, as opposed to the stone columns, and remembered an old ziggurat project, so I used the building blocks from that old project with the new textures;
Here's the stone column assortment;
Next I'm working on the slightly larger pillars and getting back to the tile variations.
Vermin King: I didn't post at the time (fairly angry still), but my June Papercraft meeting was cancelled by the venue without even notifying me. They said they would call the previous participants, but I don't know if I can trust them

sergeantmajormarkoff: I like it very much. Somehow seems like it would make the transition between Arrakis, Barsoom, and the Sahara very nicely.
