Jobs and Plotbuilds: -Helped Barteldvn with making streams and a river.
-Helped Barteldvn with fixing the paths in osgiliath
- helped teampalladin and jonathanknalle with smoothing out the cave system in moria
- helped Will_em with making streams and overlooked new players working on it.

Themed-builds: Ranger camp near osgiliath,
i made a ranger camp near osgiliath, you can see a small part of the wall of osgiliath and some farms which are still used by the farmer still living around that area.
Additional Builds: the additional builds are down below. the erebor i made is from 2014 it might be old and not look as good but im still proud of what i was able to do then by hand.
the 3e build (the big gate) is supposed to be the front of a giant elven city. and the 4th build is a sort of mermaid spawn room for underwater. all the additional builds are made in regular minecraft however sometimes texturepacks are used.
i sadly have to say that i have also made a version of isengard on a server where i work but because the server is down i was not able to take screenshots of it.

Your interests: i have no problem with building any style i love them all. however i especially love dwarven or generally styles that include a lot of nature like elven or hobbits.

Your motivation: i have always loved the world of middle earth and its tales. ive watched the movies over and over again and i still love it. it would mean a lot to me if i could be able to help this server with making the world of middle earth in minecraft. im looking forward to the time when erebor is going to be made since its my favorite place in middel earth it doesnt matter to me how long that will take.

P.S Darki made me do a trial already, the warp to the place is /warp joytrial. these is what i made so far its not finished

made a vew more builds:

a house with an interior. i made the roof a bit lower as bartle commented and also made the interior veel more cozy and made rooms more separate.

also made a new bridge:
this one is a bit thicker so its more realistic.

i also made a few more dwarven pillar designs:
tho its better if you check them out on the server gives a better view.

p.s: that i made them doesnt mean that i consider the design of each as good as the other some of them are in my opinion better then other ones.

i made a new anorian style inn:

Alright Joybuilder I'm happy you finally decided to apply for artist! Here are a couple of tips for you:

Ranger camp: Great job in general you managed to make the plot interesting everywhere, which is great, here are a couple of small things:
  • Don't use the fullgrown wheat as something else, it is too obvious that it is actually wheat. (maybe use some of stage 0-1) (we use them in osgo for adding "small grasses/moss" on stones)
  • Maybe add some leaf covers under your tree or as details around bushes
  • Try to avoid those old pillar houses with 3 blocks inbetween each pillar :p
I'd like to see a couple of things from you before you make a trial, though this is again a pretty good build :)
  • The main building of the keep: the roof is a bit too organic (maybe try looking at some real life or concept art examples to use for your keep.)
  • Your whole keep has one colour (light grey) try adding more different stone colours in some areas and maybe some wooden additions could be nice aswel.
  • If this is to be an anorien inspired town I'd avoid orange ceilings in general
  • Maybe use some overhangs on some of the houses (look at dol caranthan or dol calen)
  • Avoid putting random trapdoors on the walls that have no purpose, rather use them only at the bottem or top if you want support someting (eg use some cobble stone vertical slabs, trapdoors etc to add foundations)(again see dol calen/dol caranthan)
Some of the things I'd like to see you try are:
  • Anorien house (in dol calen/dol caranthan style) + interior
  • A small stone bridge (Gondor pack)
  • A pillar design+ wall design for Moria (Dwarven pack)
  • A tree
Good job in these builds so far and goodluck on your application!
