Looks promising there mate.
Just a small remark though;
Scale up the building in comparison to your human refference, and i would make the thing round with an inner courtyard and add some variation to the geometry .
Keep it up

Started to model the proper version of this and make it very clean. Heres a couple of crappy renders so far ... Also as it looks very identical on all sides, im going to replace one of the entrances with a brick wall and have the water fountain go againest it. Hopefully this is for the better,

Heres a bit of progress, im now working from a camera view since this competition is a still view... don't know why i was modeling everything while most of it wasn't going to be seen.

Instead of a water fountain ived changed it to a water well so it may sit under a tree and go next to a chair im going to create. Will also make a gate on the side for some extra stuff. Also might redo the roof as it looks horrible.

Comment and Crit me as much as you can,

Cheers,

Marlon
