My Creation for the 32x32 Challenge. I'm not positive that I got the proper ratios of the brick colors, but I think it still fits into the spirit of the challenge. I hope you all enjoy. Any suggestions and/or comments are appreciated! :D

I like it. Actually, it almost matches the color scheme of your Volkswagen avatar. ;-) Seriously though, it looks very good. You've managed to fit in a lot in a small space and still have it look sophisticated. I like the 1x1 blue round bricks you used for "flowers" on the ivory along the walls.

I love all the brown and dark red patterns all over the wall. Very subtle. I also like the designs on the widows.

Nice! Great use of color, the reds and gray provide good contrast and the mottled dark red bricks add to the look as well. The detailing is also well done, the attention to texturing and thus avoiding walls that are flat planes is fabulous. Aka I really like the look of the corners with the plates. Having the center of the tower at an offset angle also sets your design apart. Oh my, I was looking a bit closer and just realized how you did the water, also a nice touch.
Great design, great details.
Build? I merely Acquire atm.

I'm amazed you managed to cram all that on a 32x32 baseplate!
The color scheme you chose is fantastic, the red looks great with the gray trim.
I'm a huge fan of vines, so its nice to see some crawling up the side of your castle.
I think this is about as good as a 32x32 castle can get!
Excellent work.
