32x32 Yellowbelly Keep

For the 32x32 thread, I made this, since there haven't been any yellow entries.

This is a good solid build. I must say I rather like this style of a yellow castle over the old style. (Yes, I am not a fan of the classic yellow castle and I know that is a sin here, but personal opinions are okay to have.) The colors remind me of space moc's. I would definitely say this could be a castle built to honor the sun. The green shutters seem a little out of place in the color scheme, but sometimes you need to break up a continuous color scheme. Nice job.

I like the panelling a lot and I think the yellow and grey work really nicely together but for some reason this seems really flat. I wonder if this could really benefit from another colour added to it? Maybe if the ground showing on the outside were green to offset the shutters or dark grey to bridge the light grey to black? I like your timber frame house but it seems to be just kind of sitting on top. Is it because it is or because it's quite cubic? I wonder if the effect would be lessened were you to lower it's roof a couple of bricks.

It's a good take on a yellow castle and very cool that you did accessories in shades of yellow too!

Trust me, I think I'm funnier than you do.
Why do I have to add the word "minifig" to my spell checker every time I use it?!

I think it looks a little flat because the walls are all the same depth. They aren't broken up by anything, like an offset brick. Also, adding the grass would probably help. However, I think that these are all minor details and that it still looks amazing. I would play with it.

This is really incredible. Your mind for colors in castle is quite evident! The best part about this entire thing is the inverted slope next to a "verted" slope with a tile inbetween. Not a new idea but none the less brilliant! Well Done!!!

The tudor style building was a great incorporation, especially since it looks great with yellow. A solid build either way. I'm glad that someone finally built a yellow entry. I was waiting.

Nice work!
