Well, if i spoke Spanish, I would call this el perfecto. However, I don;t, so I will just say, it's perfect. I really love how the towers come out from the roof over the gate, and the arches over the windows loover great.

Love the tree, the whole time it took to make it level by level. That would be in addition to the whole feel and setting which is well captured. Although... erm, Gandalf (as much as I love Tolkein) seems out of place.

What makes you think it's Gandalf?

Hi,

This is a very impressive MOC. I think you have done a brilliant job in capturing a specific sense of place and environment–everything feels consistent on a thematic level. The amount of detailing, and scale of the overall composition is just right, I think that LEGO as a medium performs best when a certain amount of restraint is applied. The window design on the middle story of the main structure is absolutely fantastic.

I'm not really feeling these pieces in the courtyard though:

They might be placed too deliberately to sucessfully create the impression of naturally occurring variations in the ground material.

Will we get to see some pics of the reverse side? It also appears as though the main structure has a removable roof. Does this mean that an interior is in the works?

Great job!

the pieces, err, well, I placed them to get some variety in the ground. I think it works well :)

The rear has the same windows as the front, but I can't take any pictures because I already took it apart :wink:
