Abandoned village

Postby CaptainFlint » Sat Oct 13, 2012 6:30 am

It's been a long time since my last creations. I finally took the time and I built the arrival of a lone soldier in a deserted village.

This is an amazing build, but one thing you could have done differently is
since it's an abandoned village you'd think some of the buildings would be run down and falling apart.
Just my two cents. It is still a really good build, good job and I hope to see more amazing builds like this.
For the glory of Garhim!!!

Crazycrownieguy, I agree with you, next time I will also have this in mind. Otherwise, I'm glad that you like it.

Great work.
I really like the doorways and the way you made that clock.

There is a lot to like about this build.

The things that stand out to me as really good are the clock, the doorways (particularly like the detail above the doorway of the smaller building) and the vine growing through the wheel of the decrepit cart. The stonework on the short building is good also.
The gables on the roof are well done too. That's a tricky thing to master, as I found out when I attempted it for the first time recently.

The one thing that bothers me is that it has a little too much life for an abandoned village. There is a dog and chickens, which to me looks like inhabitants must be around, and the owl on the bush seems out of place. (how many times have you seen an owl on a bush in between two buildings? ;)) Also, as previously mentioned, there are no signs of decay to the buildings, which you would expect from the condition of the cart.
A last detail would be that the horse's saddle should be filled in with a brick so he doesn't have a gap in his back.

Small complaints to an otherwise very nice build.

Oh, I remember you! Great work on this, the level of detail is fantastic, just like usual! I have to say I especially like the brickwork on both buildings.
You would rather be building right now.
