I gave CC to Broken Brick's Space Fish and Netro's AI Control Room.

Anyway, one of my Castle MOCs. I think the walls are quite empty. What do you guys think?

Good Build,
What went well:
.the addition of a red carpet is cool.
.The arch technique for the doorway is also very good, I like the added detail on the orcs such as the cape.
Even better if:
.Add another colour to the scene, maybe on the wall behind the Minotaur's head or on the walls
. Could add more detail above the archway.

I found it hard to find improvements for this Moc, very well done!

It looks quite nice actually. Like Broken Bricks, I really like that red carpet. The walls are nice and simple, but a bit more complexity and detail would be better.

Adding on some 1x2 tiles SNOTted on the walls in grey and/or dark grey would definately add more texture to the walls, resulting in a more impressive build. If this is Not possible, making a pattern to the bricks used for the walls would make them more impressive.

An overall nice job.

Nicely done, a well built vig.
The stripe down the middle of the floor is a good idea. I think dark red would have worked better, but reddish brown is almost as good.
You nailed it with the minotaur display. Having the dark grey frame behind it shows it off nicely. The bookshelf's cool, but the one light grey stud contrasts too much with the corresponding dark grey one. Perhaps both of them being light grey might've worked better? I really like the pillar type slopes coming out of the wall, but I think that there should be a grill brick over the first one so it matches the second. (I'm a fan of symmetry.)
So, there are a few things that could be improved but overall this is an awesome vig displayed excellently!

To start this off, I must say, that this is a great MOC, though a little bland. One thing I have a complaint about, is that you are getting a little too fond about using a head as your intro picture, not to be rude, but it gets boring after a while. Also, you could have used some gold in this, maybe some pearl gold or something, as this IS an area for the king, and that gives it a little more detail too. The walls, as you have said, are a tad bit bland. so you could have added a shelf or maybe a fire place, your arches are great though, I must say.

I understand about the head thing. I may try something new in my new MOC.

Ok, it's been a while since I've given C+C to this group, so let me give this some. I really like this MOC, but most things have explain, and the 1x2 tiles for texture on the wall could be great. Maybe you should fill in the walls with the shields on them to make the walls even. But if you can't, then I understand. Also, maybe there should be some glass in front of the minotaur head. To protect the reward more. But that's probably it - great MOC and nice presentation.

I was going to put a stainglass window where the door is. But I didn't have enough of the right parts.

Oh, if you did have the right parts, it would've look good.
