You don't go small, do you? Excellent work, as always. The cloud is a nice touch. I'm vaguely surprised to see actual blue running water, as a place like this just seems like it would ooze with lava and brimstone and the like.
Well, my dear friend, it is a top of the mountain, and the water did not yet had chance to spoil itself and merge with swampy green waters below
btw, I am actually trying to build cheese mosaic as a floor for the arena, and I must say - it takes a lot more nerves and A VERY steadier hand than mine ahah aand much thinner fingers, heh

Thank you. This is an embassy in the "open" world; Drow of this city were too long under the open sky, so long, that they decided to go "neutral good" on us; bah

At times in the past I haven't appreciated your aesthetic. I think it's mainly that I'm not a huge fan of your red/black color scheme. This one, though, is pretty amazing. The rockscaping is outstanding, also with the water flowing down and through the castle. I also particularly like the bridge between the two towers. To me it looks like the Rialto Bridge in Venice.
wow, tnx; I've google that bridge, and I think I could build something exactly like that in next castle. Such nice curves. It is good to be back on my first lego forum

well, (shy), when I've made it, that trans round 1x1 were just a path, not fire; actually, the whole castle is "nature-friendly", like Katie said, with no ooze or lava, magma and thing's like that. The story put this castle (made for embassy challenge in Historica guilds) at a top of a hill of a very green country. Now, green is not the color that I have, so, I had to find a way to make a hill top above the forest scenery. I am happy that all of you folks like it
On the back there is a big cave filled with fluorescent fungi and fungi-like plants Suggesting that there is a lot of life even though we are at the top of a rocky hill

some of those white bricks in that cloud are more then 40 years old (I've inherited them from my father
you can see scratches and old look on them on close-ups here
This is so nice, I dont know what to say. And its huge, whoa
I don't think that you could sense how big the castle is from the pictures;
I am going to persuade girlfriend to pose near it, and I will post here
