About this creation
As the mighty Empire grew, the borders could no longer be protected by walls.This Empire covered vast continents, from the fierce desert South to the cold icebound North.But still there were The Ones who wanted it destroyed, so the Emperor commissioned a thousand and one towers to be built across his lands, to lookout for the barbarians and keep peace in the humble countryside...

Brilliant! The integration of SNOT and regular is great although I think that sort of an angle for a cove conveys that it is manmade and therefore the place would be more developed.

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 very cool scene! it scored pretty high!

Hi Hyden, i can see a good work here. i like the idea, if i can give you some advice... ok well, the primary thing, Use as background, white cards or blacks, depending on the production, and no sheets. If you can, use photoshop to improve the backgrounds. All for now, my friend, I hope, was to check out for help ... Keep it up, that you, you are doing well

Cool tower! As far as color scheme goes, there is a little bit of harsh contrast between the black, the pure white, and the pure blue water. But I love the snow and I envy those Roman Series 6 figs. :D Great job!

Very good but needs a bit of work.In future I advise that you use brown, dark-brown, tan and dark-tan for mud and soil paths, and old-gray, old-dark-grey, bley, and dark-bley for stone and I feel black on castle walls is a bad colour.I hope you keep this in mind next time and also http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=60907#top use that for some help. =D You asked for help, so there it is ~Bourbon.

Quoting Nannan Z. The black walls and white snow can be conflicting in terms of colors. Dark gray would look better for the tower wall than black since the contrast with the light gray edges is less harsh.
You really think so? I thought because It did conflict, It made it look better, and more outstanding, but I value your feed back and opinion.

Quoting LEGO Family Amasing MOC / vignette ... Or is it to big to be a vignette ? I love you mixture of SNOT and SOT. Also that snow texture is fantastic. The beach bay looks amasing also due to the triangled plates you have used. Lovely work man ! :P
Thanks for your kind words, I too like the use of SNOT and SOT Its called a diorama since its bigger than a Vignette.

Quoting MortalSwordsman . You have an excellent and varied collection of mocs. I also try and build in different themes. I really like this, it is full of great details like the barrels/chests and I really like the reeds coming out of the water is that the tail from the lizard minifig? My favourite photo is the guy in chains. I agree with Nick below the water is a little plain but overall this is an excellent and atmospheric moc.
Thanks for the advice and feedback! Yes the reeds are the tails from the lizard man, I too like the man in chains, but while I agree the Water is plain, I did'nt have enough white left to make surf or Trans. white to give it some sparkles. Again thanks for the comment, kind words and advice!

As much as I'd like to, I sadly don't have ANY trans. clear bricks |:( Buts thanks for your feedback!

Thanks for your comment/s :-) I really like this it's a good all round build, It's full of neat little details, I like the way you built the staff with the fans at the top and the chap with the chains is very clever oh and the shield on the side of the tower. Keep up the good work :-)

The techniques you used for the snowy trees is brilliant, as is the minotaur head. I also really like how you made the water like a cove with the encircling land. Great work!

Firstly, Thanks I like the snow tree technique too, Secondly, this is step two in the story, the first is "Cut of point". http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/308250 Thirdly, yep, its natural light, i only use natural light, it makes the MOCs look better.

Quoting Daniel Mayhew I really like this. I wish I had the cool castle bricks you have. The only thing I would've done differently (and this is just my opinion on aesthetics) is I would've turned the 2x2 slope bricks on the top of the tower around so the slope side is facing in to the tower. I think it would give it a more realistic battlement look. But like I said, just purely opinion, I still think it's excellent either way and I'm a little jealous of it :)
Thanks for your feedback! I was just experimenting with the battlements, but I wanted to get a very firm, almost aggressive look to them, and to do that I wanted them to stick out and look overbearing. Still you shouldn't be jealous of my parts, for I have never bought a castle set and have already used up all of my grey 1X2 bricks on this. Once again, thanks for your feed back, its things like his that help me improve!
