MOC: My second modular building

34 posts in this topic

Here is my second modular effort: a house inspired by Palazzo Spada in Rome. I like Italian Renaissance style and I'm trying to realize a whole strret in this style.

I hope you enjoy my new creation and I wait for critics and comments

Well if thats only your second then its a lot better than every single modular I ever made. Great work :thumbup: I love the white minifigs and the big wodden doors - dont get me started on the awesome interior. Keep it up :thumbup:.

Thanks, CB

That's another great building. It fits well with your first building.

Good SNOT around the windows. :thumbup:

Great building you got there. I'm loving all your details both inside and outside. The door, the ornamental statues, the small interior details, all great! :wub:

That is a very nice MOC. The architecture is impressive and your stylistic choice attractive.

Now, here is a tutorial on the simplest method of image re-sizing. So as not to cause browser distress to our members :thumbup:

Also, you mentioned having trouble with deeplinking flickr. If you go to the MOC's dedicated page, above the top left corner of the image is a dropdown button marked "Actions", when you click it there is an option for "View all sizes" if you click that it takes you to a page with a number of image sizes to select (I prefer Medium 500 for the forums) choose one that looks a decent size for you and the forum, then you can copy the URL from the address bar and post it in the forums the same way as before.

Great moudular building MOC mautara! I love the design of the wooden door and the grey tile bricks in front. Certainly impresssive considering it's only your second try in modulars. default_thumbup.gif

Excellent and effective use of colors and techniques to add texture and dept. :thumbup:

My only advice would be to add some additional texturing/dept on the right and left corners of the building.

This to "frame" the front facade a bit, and make it better as a stand alone model.

Currently, the facade seems to end suddenly at the edges.

To me, this is in too much contrast to the elaborate and excellent gate design.

Due to this, it seems to me that the building looks better when placed right beside your other building than as stand alone.

Hope this helps. :classic:

Thanks for sharing, kind regards,

Teddy

Stunning MOC! *oh2*

I love the grey tiles on the side of the building. The building is very impressive and I can't wait to see a whole street in the same style as it.

Very well done. :thumbup:

I'm really impressed! When I clicked on this topic and the upper part of the first image appeared, for the first 1-2 seconds I thought that this was a real life photo. Well done mautara, great work! :thumbup:

I totally agree with you. But i wanted to make it 32 studs long and I wasn't able to make a "bugnato" (in italian) on the sides of the building due to the way I SNOTted them. So I started to work at another building ad I will "sandwich" "palazzo spada"!

Anyway, many thanks to you and to everyone who likes my MOCs. I really appreciate.

The look a bit like those mini spanner things that are used as joints (sorry ive got no idea of the name either!) a bit like a minifig hand but angular.
