This castle started out as a simple exercise but as I got along, it became more ‘serious’. I’m a Blender newbie (and cg newbie in general), but I liked this piece just enough to post it here.
The castle was based on the following picture of Maybole castle:
… but hold on to your horses: I never meant to entirely recreate it. I used this picture as a guideline for the meshes and didn’t refer to any other Maybole picture. What I did want to capture was the nice yellow sunlight on the bricks you sometimes see on cold, beautiful winter days. Hence, I added some leafless trees to enhance that feeling.
Any c&c are very welcome.
