Bigger (!) Yellow Castle by Infyrana

Postby Bruce N H » Tue Mar 15, 2005 8:50 pm

Hi all,

Check out this [url=http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=121455]Bigger Yellow Castle by Infyrana

Image[/url]

He's really used some innovative techniques to make towers of varying shapes.

Image Image Image

Also, as with his red castle, he's tried to emulate the symbolism from the original yellow castle.

Lucky kid!

Anyway, check it out!

Oh man, that must have been fun to build. So many wild building techniques wrapped up in one tremendous creation. That's a keeper if ever there was one!

I suspect that Infyrana is the parent and the kid just gets to play with it. If I'm wrong and that kid built it, just wait until he gets a little experience under his belt... :lol:

Looking further, I noticed a couple of things I missed in my original post. Perhaps the coolest aspect is the inclusion of these little curved wall sections:
Image
that allow him to connect up the walls at angles other than 90 degrees. See the front wall in this pic:
Image

Also, the whole thing is modular, and the walls and towers can be combined in different ways:

That's one cool kid if he built that castle. Man, if that guy enters that in the next CCC, he'll beat everyone in the yellow castle category(sorry guys) :P .

Clearly that child did not build that castle...


I really do like that castle. The shape of those towers are really cool. The triange one kinda irks me, I've heard of triangle walls, not towers. But the shape is good.

ADMINS would this have done well in the CCC?

I saw this on my lunch hour. I really like the combination and variety of shapes for this castle - I have been experimenting with round stuff lately, so this is inspiring. I wish there was a way to do circles without the rounds
Lucky kid is right.

Cheers,
SirBert.

I am envious. Very envious.

This builder not only has an amazingly large (from my admittedly biased point of view) collection, but also some incredible skills.

I can't really say that I like any one thing about this Castle, just the whole thing. I am reinforced in my opinion, though, that yellow is a great colour for building castles.

What do you think, Roleplayers? Is this Orion?

Hmm... I think of Orion a bit bigger, but some thing like this. All those great towers :shock:

It really is a nice castle. I particularly like the triangular tower! The modular nature of this castle is fantastic, and most of the shown combinations look great. Now THAT would have been a deserving entry into the Yellow Castle category in the CCC!



Later.
