Welcome to CC - wow, now THAT's an impressive entrance. I really like the very detailed, almost baroque building style, and also the way that very few walls go straight across for very long, which makes it seem more fitted to the environment. The king caught up in the tree is really funny. The lighting gave some particularly interesting effects, like in [url=http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ognome/Haidos/haidos06.jpg]this shot:
That guy looks like he must be an impressive warrior, btw, is there any backstory about him? Or about the apple-obsessed king?

You know, you're not exactly required
to do multi-baseplate, full-scale castles. It is okay to do small fortresses, town buildings, carts, catapults, etc - the sort of thing that could take an afternoon or a weekend. We won't get mad.
Great work, and I hope you stick around here and join in more of the fun.
