Iiiiiitttt'sssss mmmmmmeeeeee! :D Yes, I am back, after an amazingly full, intense, and God-filled shift from New Zealand to Australia!
About this creation

I'm now trying to make the most of what I have, and use pieces I don't usually...

I'm also looking for new techniques, such as this new wall design that I love :D







































fishies!

I hope you all enjoyed!

God bless you all!

Quoting Michael Kringe Yay! You're back! I like the landscape in this MOC and the tower design is fantastic! Btw, how is Australia?
Cheers! Hot. very, very hot :P
Quoting Thoy Bradley Looking good Tim. I see your brick arsenal has expanded again :) Aussie has been good for that so far. lots of great details, and I love the rustic look of the wild foliage.
Cheers, Thoy!
Quoting Pedro Resendes The swamp is great, but the real highlight is, I think, the random bricks on the walls. Incredible effect!
thanks!

Cheers, LWC Guy and MC for the C&C. I did have some landscape, but you can't see it well in the pics, unfortunately. I'll definately take your advice to heart, thanks a lot! and cheers to everyone else, too! :D

Awesome! You have a lot of great techniques here: the root system of the tree is ingenious and the tower wall is quite nice. I agree with LWC, though: your landscape could use just a bit of variation. Other than that, fantastic job! Glad to hear you're moved in and building again.

The build is good, but I am going to expand off of what LWC guy said. Add more land. You need high spots low spots, open patches, rocks and not so much folliage on a flat base. That mangrove tree needs to be closer to the water, because to me, it looks more like a Mongolia. About the water, Get that stuff contained bro! It's a nice technique, but you need to have that thing be part of the base, not just split it in two.The loose stuff is fine, but you should really have it be part of a full base. The tower is also good, well, at least the sections of it are good. You have the base, the middle, and the top. All three in their respects are good, but it's like taking three different building, slicing them into thirds and just taking each section and putting it with the wrong parts. The middle and the top go together more than the base, but it's still odd looking. The base is fantastic, that loos brick design looks great, now, if that was throughout the whole build, or part of a big castle that looked like that all the way around, that would look so cool. Techniques are most successful when they are not put up against a completely different technique. The build is still good, but it needs work.

Great to see a new post. I expect that means you have set up a new building operation in Aus now. The crazy paving walls are an especially nice technique.

Tim! Cool build, there's some great details going on with that tower. But Tim, your castle builds seem to lack composition. Castle builds of this type (a medium sized MOC where the focus is on the surroundings as much as the structure) need to have some more natural placement to them, not just a a tower sitting on a base with a whole bunch of foliage and a stream running by. Shaping the base differently helps, but may not be necesary. Picture a medieval scene and chop out the part of it you want to build. When you build from a flat base, don't think of it as your base landscape which you add all you features and details to. A landscape rolls and flows, it generally isn't a long flat plain unless you're building in the desert, then it looks a lot more natural. Build your landscape and place your structure on it where you can see the majority of the build at attractive angles from one point of view. Hope that makes sense :)
