This creation debuted at Brickfair 2010. This creation was pretty much built off of the roof, waterfall and dark tan path. From there the detail fell in.
About this creation
Entrance 1

I have been wanting to get back into castle for some time now but have been distracted by contests and my TTA series. Anyway this is my Dwarven Entrance, enjoy!
Entrance 2

I don't know but there is something about the idea of a waterfall that I love. To be sure we'll be seeing more.





Some dwarves returning from the hunt. This was actually a last minute detail that I made at Brickfair. It seems empty without it.



Another angle for the dwarves. As Far as plants go I actually tried to use some sort of pattern for them. I had clumps of Pink and White flowers just sprayed around then strategically placed Tan Bushes to complement them. Then from there the larger petaled plants were in bunches as well.



You can see the dividing line between the Dark and Light Greys here. An ever classic castle technique; the dark grey represent the wet rock. Unfortunately it is kind of hard to see because of the plants. I would like to thank a castle inspirer of mine Luke Watkins for the idea for the plants. Ingenious how just a little bit of Lime shows through giving it a more organic look. Ingenious! Therefore I will not take any credit for it.



The water looks pretty cool in this picture. It almost has a 3D look to it. I really liked putting the gear as a design into the rock. It seems just to fit.



I debated with myself for over an hour about whether to put an actual bridge or to leave it as a plank. Obviously I chose the plank because to it adds to the ruggedness of the countryside.



As I said earlier this roof was really what brought out this MOC.


The Inside



The Chandeliers were inspired by a restaurant nearby my house. I also had a win with my lighting experiment this time through. It needed much less photo editing.



On the far left you can see a little lamp that fills in the corner there and adds light to the blacksmith.






Well Ladies and Gentlemen there you have it.
A Special thanks to
Jack Bittner-Dark Tan plates
Luke Watkins-idea for the plants
Stuartt Clark-foliage
Brian Leppert-Dark Tan plates

Well fellas there you have it.
God bless,
Blake

Lush landscaping, and nice overall scene. Great job with that roof, it's a winner. How about a dash of white foam at the bottom of the water?

Hey, thanks for the post, I was wondering who this was so obviously I had to go find out what MOC you brought to BrickFair, now I remember :) I love the detail in this btw, something that is always cooler to see in person rather than online so glad you brought it!

Quoting Evan Bricknave Amazing MOC! The waterfall is fantastic, and the bird's nest is very clever! Say, were you at the BrickFair 2010 TFOL talk session? :-)
Unfortunately I went to Arthur's talk on Architecture. I would have liked to. If you remember I was someone who came in trying to find Arthur's talk;)

I agree about the roof... a great use of technique. The waterfall and water are cool too. I think you should have made a bridge instead of using the plank, but I wouldn't deny this MOC a 5/5 over it. Great work.
