The main Castle plan is now complete.

All I have left is....... MY GOD....... what have I started.
Lets See
1. Add a LOT of stone detail.
2. Drink a Rum and Coke.
3. Add forground.
4. Drink a coulple of Rum and Coke.
5. Contour landscape.
6. Drink a few more Rum and Coke.
7. Add a character or two.
8. If I can find the bottle... Drink a lot more Rum and Coke.
9. (If I get Time) Finish the scene before the end of the bottle errrrr. I mean end of month.
10. Try to remember where I left the Rum Bottle. hahaha

Nice start

I'd like to see a fly through in the gates around the keep and down into the dungeon. Is it going to be that detailed???

Been a fan of castles since this high - am looking forward to it.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the scene just yet.
But I hope to get in a lot of detail before I finish.

Thanks for your comment. I agree 100% with you.

The grass shader is only there to add contrast the building at this stage.

Very cool so far! I like seeing the progression of the projects. It makes one appreciate the work that is put into modeling anything in a 3d package. You picked an awesome castle to model!
