i really like how you did your shading, this is something i need to work on as i start building my castles upwards and incorporating more foliage.
Are our builds ever really done?

The whole scene is great, but I particularly like the stonework. I am curious: do you have a method to building it, or do you start putting pieces together and build it as you go? I ask because I am trying to make my stonework look more natural, and I think you have done an excellent job. I see a lot of builds that look decent, but leave a lot of regular looking patterns because they are comprised of many slope pieces. I like the way yours uses SNOT techniques in various directions, combined with regular orientation building. Very nice indeed.

I have the general idea of what I want the rock face to look like, but no very definite plan as to what pieces to use, generally speaking :) . Thank you!

Thanks! Haha, well I was inspired by that scene, to be sure.
