Will this scape resemble what I want it to resemble?

I'm shooting for Cory's (Aquarium Co-op) 800G scape (first link). Essentially a river basin with a long, sunken root of driftwood across the tank. My tank is much, much smaller than his but I'm shooting for the same scape, not the same fish.

I found these driftwood roots for sale. My tank is 120x50x50 CM (fish). The second link shows the root (110cm) I intend to have spreading across the tank diagonally, and from the third link I have chosen the far right root (100cm but will be halved) to imitate Cory's root which grows upwards. I'll find some pebbles/boulders to fill the bottom out at a later stage. Instead of using fine gravel like Cory, I think I may shoot for fine silver sand. This is for a SA community, and I really want to see Cory's sifting!

Is my interpretation and attempt of his driftwood going to look at all similar with the driftwood I'm using? I'm aiming for a similar effect overall, not necessarily the exact shape.

TIA!

I feel like the one you linked are more straight and dont have those bumps sticking out likes corys does. This one looks a bit more closer to Corys wood piece.

Thank you! The one I was looking at initially sold overnight, but I found some even better pieces at a cheaper price! I'm super stoked, these are the pieces!
