Smile Medieval Ages - el_newty

Hi guys,

Sorry for my absence at the Twisted X-Mas challenge forum…but now I’m back!
Oh, by the way Happy New Year to all of you!

For this challenge I have this idea to make the Castle Krak Des Chavaliers.
At my opinion is a gorgeous and grand castle.
I will try a reproduction of that castle.
Here I attached a perspective view and a sketch plan of that castle.

I hope to finish the work; I hope it’s not too late to start this project.
If I don’t be able to texture it I hope to finish the modeling in time.
By the way witch is the final day of this challenge?
See you lather…

mumbojumbo_13, the castle of the nights (Krak Des Chavaliers is in France, is a magnificent example of Crusader architectural genius and it’s dating back to the 12th century AD.

I hope to -<{JB}>-

Ok folks, here is the basic shape of the interior walls for the castle.
I put two drawings to see more easily the front and the back side of the castle.
In short time will come the exterior walls and then the rest of the details...and so on...

Ok, here I post two pictures with my castle.
Basically the shape of the castle is done.
From now on I will try to texture it.
There will be some flags, some torches, threes, a beautiful blue sky, and… and… a final render
I hope that you will like it
