this is one of many WIP posts for my Barad Dur creation. I figure that when I post everything I've created to date, I'll have about 1/17 of the build done. I've been pretty lazy with uploading, but I will upload more soon

About this creation
a basic elevation view. you can't make out very many details except for the cool spires on the battlements. I really like how they turned out, and they are super simple
a closeup on the actual door, and surrounding arch. it is actually very close to the image in the movie. I tore it apart (figuratively) three times to get the curve closer to the model used in the movie.
a detailed shot of the descending arches on the wall. looking at this part of the model, I got the feeling that this wall was moresinister than I had hoped for. these were actually a last minute addition to the model
this shot shows some of the depth to the arches and columns
a shot of the diamond windows. They are deep pits in the wall. They add some nice maleficent shadows to an otherwise blank and repetitious wall.
the window and three blocks. Kinda pointless, but it shows more depth. It also takes up a lot of space
an epic view down the battlements. You can see the cool curves of the crenellations.
another direct shot of the wall. this one shows a bit more shadowing in the deep collumns
