So how does it look? After a week of rock work I think I'm finally happy with the results, This will be a Mbuna tank by the way and have a tan crushed aragonite substrate. I may add some java fern and java moss after it is up and running between the rocks.

All looks good except that top rock on the front right pile. Looks too neatly stacked, at least from the front. I think I'd try to move it or turn it over or something. Play around with that and I think you'll have it. Looking very good.

looks good....are the back rocks just balanced on each other? Stable enough?

***edit*** nevermind...saw you other post. Siliconed to the back is good. Just going to use a jet of water to clean out between?

Nice layout - fish should be happy in there. Just a thought on your sand - with those rocks, which look grey to me in the pictures, you might want to consider a greyish colored sand - or a peppered black/white color like CaribSea has. I know its a real personal thing but some people find that rocks just look more natural with a substrate close in color - lighter or darker but in the same tones as it is the surrounding rocks that usually break down and form the surrounding sand. Look forward to your final pics.

Looks excellent. Aquascaping my empty tank right now as well. The hard part is making it look natural as possible! LOL I look forward to seeing more pics.
