The Soldiers love to hang around this area of the town, where the water is clear and also where they can taunt their prisoners.

Water looks great! The buildings look edible  :pir_laugh2: but contain some nice architectural designs...

Its quite a nice technique. But I think its more suited to choppy high seas. Rather than shore port towns. Id like to see a small ship sailing on a 32x32 Blue Baseplate.  :thumbup:

This is nice! I really like the water and some of the dtails on the buildings are great. I like the use of the classic colors but the buildings look a bit too cartoonish.

My thoughts exactly, looks a bit like gingerbread houses  :pir-tongue: .
But that water sure does look amazing, even better than snot variations on water (this works especially better for rough seas), only 1024 pieces to cover a 32x32 plate would be a tad expensive, despite it being a fairly cheap part.

The water looks great Erdy! I love it. The fortress itself is also very nice, it's a quite large cell for 1 prisoner. I'd almost say he has a comfortable life in there! :pir_laugh2:
Nice job! :thumbup:

A really nice creation. The water draws you in and then the details take over, well done on this beauty.

Magnifico :pir_kiss: ! Your water technique is outstanding and the little harbor itself looks good as well, with the traditional rat in the prison :pir-laugh: !
I also love how you've done the brown walking way, it proves that simplicity is an art!
Please DO continue building like this, my dearest Pirate Regulator :thumbup: !

Come on now Joey, everything reminds you of raspberry cake!

I think this looks amazing. To me it doesnt look like rough water, but rather wind blowing over water in a harbor. I really like that.

I think the water looks great.  It is exactely like what you see when the Bay is choppy.  I was wondering what it would look like with some of the emerald greens wedges mixed in?  That has to be the prettiest prison I have ever seen.  I hope the pirate doesn't get teased too much for being imprisioned in something so adorable :pir_laugh2:
