CCCX Trade And Tolls - Rush Hour at the West Gate

Postby shmails » Wed Nov 21, 2012 5:35 am

This is an entry into the CCCX Trade and Tolls Category:

RUSH HOUR AT THE WEST GATE

Ever since the King decide to put a toll on people entering for the Saturday Market, the traffic has been a nightmare!

This scene was meant to be a medieval version of NYC traffic at the bridges and tunnels, I hope that came across.

Enjoy!

Awesome work, you definitely expressed the busy feeling well. I love the tan/dark tan mottling on the lower level of the building, and the little glimpses of the road I can see look great too!
You would rather be building right now.

Thanks guys! The house was loads of fun, I may do another one in that style soon. :eyebrows: The road was not so much fun, it took me hours to place all those tiles and you can barely see it, oh well! :D

Both levels of the house and the roof are awesome. Cool road too.

I'm liking the mix of 2x2 and 1x1 tiles in the road a lot, and the simplicity and height of the castle wall make it much more imposing than a lot of the fancier architecture out there.
