Oh yeah this is an extremely epic piece of artwork. You are easily one of the best castle builders I've seen, and having checked your Flickr, you're easily one of the best builders out there, in my opinion. Well done sir!
I just can`t compare this castle to any other castle Ive ever seen, like how are anybody suppose to top that! This is just so unique and detailed that it is very hard to say something about it, I am just sooooo speechless right now! Great job :D
Life has a way of really stealing our brick time (speaking from experience!), but we have to prioritize, as hard as that can be sometimes. *sigh* In the mean time, fantastic work here, my friend! Beautiful and consistent technique throughout with a wonderful classic design. Way to rock the ABS!

Amazing castle. Of all your castle, this is my favotite. It looks so massive. How many building hours were needed to achieve this masterpiece ? Sometimes, it's enough to sit down and just say WOW !!!
This was built over the course of a month, but I'd say that there was only about 14 hours of total building time. I'd build a little bit here, and a little bit there, and before I knew it, it was done. Thanks for the comment.
What a splendid castle, words fails me to describe, and that's something which doesn't happen very often. Don't worry too much about being away from your bricks: you can take the MOCcer out of the spirit, but you can't take the spirit out of the MOCcer ;)
Beautiful piece of work. The rock work is brilliant. The splash of tan is a great touch. I love the overall shape of the castle. It's not that fantasy look with a million spires and long thin bridges, it's the classic, real-world castle that you may see on a cliff in Scotland. Very nicely done. Good luck in college.
It's massive, and it's excellent. And the rocks, and the towers, and the placement of the figures, and about a million other things...but my favorite part... it that tan keep in the center of the castle. I would never have thought of such a thing and the effect here in this MOC is perfect. A true keep. A hard point or a "last defense" within the larger castles defenses. Really classic castle thinking and really well done here. Your decision to build it in a different color stone is a really cool way of bringing it out more. Looks like an older part of the castle. I wish you luck at school! When push comes to shove (and it will my friend... it will!) remember that grades go south much faster than bricks go stale! Your grades are the main effort. They should occupy the "Keep" on your calendar. We, as well as your bricks, will all wait for as long as it takes. Study...and then...Attack!
Incredible! The size is impressive, but the texturing and shaping really make it stand out. The rockwork is spectacular, and the foliage is excellent. I really like the towers, and great use of colour. It's good to hear that you'll still do some building in college, and hopefully I won't face you in the MocOlympics...
So many fantastic details - I don't know where to begin! The rock work is beautiful, and so is the landscaping. I can't even begin to count all of the details in the castle itself. Wonderful job, and good luck at your college!
