I actually like the two-toned style of the houses and palace. It gives the buildings an unique and appealingly simple appearance, without being boring thanks to the variety in shapes and patterns.
All of your work so far is stunning! I'm especially a big fan of that dark and overgrown cavern; looking forward to exploring it in-game and discovering all its hidden secrets when the adventure map is released. :3

Jul 25, 2012I suggest adding some rugs (red and yellow/orange patterned rugs would look good, I bet) to help break up the large areas of plain wooden floor, and putting some paintings or hanging planters wherever there's big expanses of open wall. You might also want to try replacing the torches with redstone lanterns set into the ceiling and floor, to help give the home a more classy, modern feel. Zhanradfee's water suggestions are also excellent ideas (especially the terraced pool!) Anyway, I love what you've with your home so far- it's so clean and airy! Keep up the good work, and happy decorating.Posted in: Screenshots
Jul 10, 2012Gorgeous architecture. <3 Love how you use sandstone instead of white wool in combination with the logs- the sandstone's off-white color, in my opinion, pairs much more nicely then wool's pure white color with the dark tones of the redwood bark. The lever corbels are a great touch. You might also want to try open fence gates; they also make fantastic supports. Then again... I don't remember if they existed before 1.2.4. :|Posted in: Screenshots
Jul 9, 2012BlockMagexXx posted a message on [WIP] Medieval Town of (Insert Name Here) *PICTURE HEAVY*Wonderful little village! Love the woodsy location of the town and material diversity in the homes. Of the entire village, I think my favorite area has to be that marshy wheat field. It's nice to see a visually appealing irrigation system that doesn't, for once, consist of straight channels cutting though the fields.Posted in: Screenshots
Awesome job, so far! Keep up the good work. C:
Jul 1, 2012This is just... mind blowing. From the exquisite detailing on the mansion's exterior, to the gorgeous patternwork on the interior walls, floor, and ceiling, every aspect of this Victorian mansion is expertly designed. The assorted statues scattered around the gardens are also exceptionally made. Golfmaster44's ability to create such easily recognizable sculptures with only a couple of blocks is downright impressive.Posted in: Screenshots
FANTASTIC job, all of you! The six months were well spent. I look forward to seeing what amazing structures you come up with next. :-)
Jun 30, 2012I like the material choices used for the first house. The pine and sandstone complement each other well, and the decorative sandstone makes for a great border garnish.Posted in: Creative Mode
The one major thing that you can do to really improve the appearance of your houses is to try giving them shapes more complex than simple blocks. Try adding square or circular jut-outs to the sides of your structures to help spruce up their shapes a little. You might also want to try adding some biome-themed gardens around them too, to help them blend in better with the environment.
Jun 26, 2012This. Is. Amazing. You have such talent... I can't believe you blew up all your previous builds. Don't even THINK of touching another TNT block before you've completed and uploaded pictures of this castle.Posted in: Screenshots
BTW, love your use of pistons as wall decorations. Never though to use them as a building material... now I'm inspired to try experimenting a little more with them.
Jun 21, 2012Love how well the buildings flow with the epic mountain landscape. The architectural detailing on the town houses and castle structures also look absolutely amazing. While I've seen many medieval/fantasy style projects to date, I think this one just lodged a spot in one of my top favorites. Awesome job! +repPosted in: Screenshots
Jun 18, 2012Pandora Hearts was a great show... unfortunately, years have passed and there's still no second season for it. I'm beginning to lose hope that there will ever be onePosted in: Culture, Media & Arts
Anyhow, my favorite animes, in no particular order, are:
1. Moribito (strong, sensible female lead, believable characters, beautiful artwork and animation - the show feels sort of like a Miyazaki film drawn out into a series)
2. Cowboy Bebop
3. Avatar (If it counts as an anime)
4. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

I wouldn't feel right naming this topic "OMG EPIC CASTLE MUST CLICK!!!". I like to keep a bit of modesty.
Actually, I was thinking more like an unique name for your castle\kingdom, like "Castelle Burgundy" or "Kingdom of Erith", you know... something that suggests that the creator put some real thought and creativity into his\her build.
Apr 14, 2012This is actually quite nice. Love all the indentations and arches sculpted into the casle walls. The tutor-style homes in the 5th pic are also very well made. You need to come up with a better name for your thread, as "Medieval build" isn't exactly the most click-inducing title. And for a creation of this quality, some extra attention is a must!Posted in: Screenshots

ive made the mauntain by using mcedit.and i think the texture pack make's the stone bricks and the wood fit together better, so it is more like 1 whole thing,rather than 2 part :the roof and the walls.
but i do get your point but i think that the differends in collours in wood and stone is big enough to not make it boring,but still fits together.and the texturepack adds kinda a rustic feeling to it.
I agree! To me, the muted colors do a great job of making the structure appear as a whole, while offering just enough visual variation to keep the castle from looking dull. But hey, there's enough architectural details in there that even if the castle was made of one resource, it would still be one lovely looking build. You did a wonderful job with it. I especially like the complex layout! The only thing I think could use a little improvement are the towers- they seem a bit top heavy. Maybe add some one-block-wide supporting ridges along the sides? Either way, it's still a very impressive build. Awesome work!
