About this creation










































Standing on a wind-swept peninsula on the western coast of Ireland, Aughnanure Castle is the chief stronghold of the O'Flaherty clan. They are just now receiving an important visitor, Mark O' Tipperary.

Aughnanure Castle is based on a real castle of the same name in County Galway Ireland.

This is my second entry to the Castle Category of the CCCX.

Thanks for viewing have a great day! :)

Awesome job! This is a superior demonstration of expert SNOT. The rockwork is awesome, and the curved wall is awesome! Great job with the detailing, the water, and the foliage, as always! Great job! I really like the design points, and the detailing, as I mentioned earlier, is superb! the castle itself is awesome, and the type of tower you chose to build is sweet! Great, great job. Mind blowing creation!

Brilliant, as always, Mark. I love all the different tones in the castle walls, and the rock work is, of course, amazing. The wall around the little courtyard is a nice touch. You changed it up a bit on your water effects, going with the trans-pieces rather than just straight bricks. It makes the water more vivid and gives it that transparent feel that you can't get with normal bricks. Excellent work.

wonderful as always... it's the stunning effect about your speed too, that scares me ;-) ! Do you dismantel your MOCs after taking pictures and sit down to built the next, or do you have millions of pieces and you built the castles hole the year and only present them us in that speed to the end of the year ?

Mr. Spacek has beaten me to the punch and said, in essence, my exact thoughts... but this time, I feel this build deserves a large, detailed comment (not that the others didn't, of course, but this one strikes me for some reason as something special). Man, it's fantastic. Where to start? I love the rockwork; you're an expert of SNOT and incorporating those awesome tan paths into the landscape. The foliage is amazing, as usual (nice olive green useage!). The stud-water technique is awesome and vibrant, and the weathered castle looks great! The colors are perfect, the curvature brilliant, and the architecture stunning. Well done, Mr. Erickson... well done.

I'd love to leave in-depth comments on all your CCCX builds, but you pump them out so fast I don't have time. I hope the simple gorgeous, brilliant, stunning, and masterful aren't too boring. :) That said, gorgeous work Mark! This is stunningly masterful. Brilliant stuff mate! ;)

Really nice build, but it has the feel of a tower more than a full castle.

I'm not real sure about the wavy footprint of the wall. It seems a bit odd. I love that keep, though.
