Well, in the interest of trying out this little promotion game, here's another comment Bill. For a YFOL, I think you're quite a promising eleven year old builder! Also, you and your brother did a pretty decent job on all that the foliage! Greenery can be tricky stuff to accomplish.
"Though Birnham wood did come to Dunsinane." The first thing I thought of was that passage from MacBeth when I saw this. Amazing idea beautifully executed. The texture you achieved with all the foliage is splendid and one I would like to use in the future with your permission. The castle texture is wonderful as well with all the smooth tile work, it balances well with the greenery. Excellent job!
Really great build! I like the foliage, as most people don't use the bamboo leaves. I think the castle should have more brickish design, but other then that I love it. The trees are great! I wish that there was more stars to rate it then just 5. :) :) Arctic Wolf
Very nice! I like the clean feel to the castle. Tiles everywhere!! I think it could use a bit of a rougher feel though. Not all medieval castles were nice and pretty like this. I think you should have left some of the studs exposed, though I probably would have made that same flaw. The foliage is very nice. The trees look great! The stacked bamboo leaves just doesn't seem to fit in though. It looks kind of like large bamboo stalks (or whatever you call them) and it just seems out of place. However, the overall build is a real eye catecher! Great job!
