A fine tribute to Erik! An amazing castle. The level of detail in this is very good. I think that half round tower/keep is just great! Makes me wish I could figure out how to get the round building technique out.

Love the fishermen pulling fish out with a net and the snake charmer.

Great castle! i love the mottled walls with tiles here and there, they make the castle look much more realistic. I also like all the buildings inside the castle.

Very cool! I like how it appears to have so much depth to it. The positioning of the buildings and the walls give it kind of a layered effect, makes it seem like there are multiple levels. There's tons of detail and plenty to look at. Thanks for sharing!

Man this is awesome. Definitely a worthy tribute!
I absolutely love all the details, and the overall shape doesn't suffer from it. Excellent job, and good presentation too! :)

This is an incredibly well designed MOC. Everything about the architecture and landscpaing is just wonderful. The landscaping in particular caught my eye at first. The color combinations, from the sea to the rock walls, all blend together in a realistic and harmonious way. Two of my favorite portions of the MOC have to be your tree designs, and what looks to be a burial mound of some sort. The trees are very large and seem to characterize the life of your landscaping. Nicely done...

A fantastic tribute to a builder who was one of the community's best. Eric's MOCs were always an inspiration to me so it is nice to see someone pay him such a tribute. Your MOC really captures the spirit of the original!

Great work.
