  1. Nice work! That little stone wall is nice, along with those goats. ;) Me and Henjin both came up with it about the same time. Just a mix of some goats in a Brick to the Past's builds and Mark of Falworth's most recent large collab build. Anyways, excited to see what you will do with Conrad! Keep it up! :)

    ok so here is my character. 43423326145_739648e777_z.jpgGoH Intro by Last of Nerogue, on Flickr

    Name: Darion 

    Occupation: Merchant

    Darion is a merchant and captain of the ship Hawkmoon. Generally he uses this ship for law abiding trades but from time to time he is known to do some trading outside of the law.

    Welcome! Also everyone, I got him to come over here, also got him to join Avalonia. ;)


  3. Really nice one Henjin! I really like those cutouts, especially the water one. :) As I've said on Flickr, great colors here and an awesome sense of business without it being too much. :) That fence has to be my favorite detail though. Also, thanks for the shout out!

    It's superb, the cobblestone path leading to the garden is awesome. The sheep are lovely, defo will end up borrowing them. 

    Thanks! Much appreciated!

    Nicely composed village setting. The jumble of buildings with a house and small shed near the mill works very smoothly. And you made good use of the two tudor portions - they add some nice contrast to all of the other stone walls :thumbup:
    Beautiful landscaping as well! Such a significant slope makes the terrain way more interesting than a typical flat base would have.

    And the little garden area has some lovely details with the clever cobblestone design, low stone wall, and fun plants :wub:

    Thanks SK! The garden was actually just a thrown together space where I didn't have enough green! Glad it turned out well. :)

    A pity you couldn't write a story, because if it would have been as good as the build...

    @The Maestro knows what I'm going to say first: maybe a bit too much texture here, but that's just nitpicking :wink: I really love to see more tudored sections, even when they seem to be in disrepair :thumbup: a small remark about the tower's window though: it feels very bad to have these vertical 'beams' next to it dropping dead before reaching the roof...

    Aside from that, some great landscaping, and especially liking the vegetable garden!

    Thanks Titus! Yeah, I can see what you're saying, there is a lot of texture and it may be a little too much... Glad you like the tudor, and I know about the vertical beams, I was running out of pieces, because I was also building Goblin Town at the time and I was using most of brown tiles for scaffolding... Thanks again!

    Perfectly executed DC-style technique with the structures, but what I think makes this MOC really work, is the few-bricks-tall hill you set them on.  That and the camera angle really balance out the build I think.

    Thank you! :)

    Nice shape of the buildings and great overall color use!
    The goats are also top notch :classic:

    You've pretty much nailed the presentation with the good photo and not overdone editing.
    A couple of minor comments however: To me the vignetting has a fairly substantial concentric banding to it, maybe it is caused by stepwise conversion or something
    else damaging the gradient? Smooth gradients are sensitive to banding sometimes in my experience...
    I also think that the visible gaps in the tower top should be avoided, if nothing else by some careful darkening of the visible light in post-processing.

    Thanks! Yeah, I am not actually very pleased with the pic, as the gradient I used got choppy as you said... I think from now on I will do a one color background if I don't just fade the lines of the white posterboards I use... Thanks again!

    I am just so surprised by the activity that has picked over the last few days. At the moment there is a post every few minutes or so! Far better than the eerie silence that was this forum a month or two ago... 

    Yeah, I am really enjoying this surge of activity, although I wasn't here during the silence, I still watched the guilds from afar and got a little bored with nothing there. Now it seems that the Historic Themes part of the Forum is the inactive one, and this is active.

    Guilds of Historica thrives again!
    Makes things tricky to keep up with, but that's always a nice problem to have :laugh:
    And all the builds... :drool:

    Yeah, I normally check in every 1.5-2 hours, and I am surprised by the amount of activity!

    It is no hoax!  I got myself up to a pitch of fury and bravery and madness, and in the swelling atmosphere I had created, with sweat pouring down my brow and my hands shaking from the adrenaline! ... I pressed the button, and now am here! :soft smile: :faints:

    Aha, the third sibling has arrived! :D Now which guild will you choose? ;) Welcome! :)
