My interests
:

The styles i'm most interested in building are those of Gondor, in particular the ones from the regions of Lamedon and Belfalas. I like the way the colour pallets work together. One of my favorite warps is Nan Dawar I love how the castle looks and the custom textures really work together there. Another one of my favorite warps is Rendul because of the amazing castle that is built there. The things I like building most are rural houses and castles but I try getting better at organic shapes like hulls of boats and trees as well.

Your motivation:

Although I haven't been on the server for all that long I do really love the way it looks and it would be absolutely amazing if I could help in creating such a world. Although jobs and plotbuilds are a way of accomplishing that they're not always available and as an artist I would have the chance to build more inside of the mainworld. I like to think of myself as productive builder and I can really get things when I set myself do it.

I compiled a single imgur album with all of the screenshots tagged and labelled

Quick note, please dont use shader screenshots for your app. We want to see how the build looks in its original state. :)

sorry about that, I always play with shaders on so I didn't think about turning them of for the pictures. I made another imgur album with all of themebuild and freebuild images without shaders.

FFA Castle
- Not my favourite castle, I'll be honest.
- Layout is very square and boring.
- Realistically it seems to make little sense.
- The roofs are a mess.
- But that is to be expected on old themed builds ;)
..

Easter themed build
- Nice road mix.
- Wall is overdetailed/contains unnecessary detail.
- Terrain is a little boring, though nice that you added it. Usually you want to separate the cliff and the grass more, rather than having them randomly all over the place.

Brandywine
- I like the feeling of the bridge, it seems big, but it isn't too big.
- Little overdetail, a bridge should usually not have any depth really, you add detail by (a nice gradient/blockmix, larger underwater foundations for the pillars, minor ruining, vegetation...

Dead marshes
- The paths are an interesting idea, though perhaps they should have been a little smaller/more obscure
- In any vegetation build you should cover pretty much every block with either grass, or other plants. This makes it come truely to life.

Green dragon
- This is probably not the style we'll go for if we one day decide to revamp the shire
- Never the less, it doesn't look bad, and to me somewhat reminds me of the shire. (don't forget to givew each house a chimney!)
- Way too many paths for very little structures. Also paths that go between 3 or more structures should for more of a square, and in front of important buildings you would also get a larger portion of dirt around it.
- I like the market stalls and the little well.
- The trees are alright, a little too round/spherical
- The streetlights seem odd.
- Add life to a place by adding gardens, fields, carts, shacks, ruins, trees...

Freebuild anorien house
- Nice exterior
- Paths seem a bit odd, definitely think more of where people would walk.
- Instead of a wheat field, make a garden, with multiple vegetables.

Anorien village
- Nice, good layout, nice feeling of life. (though again, adding even more stuff like carts, stalls, shacks.... could help)
- Good trees
- You use a certain window/door design pretty much on every house, avoid doing that.

Hey Visstick. Looks like you have got a solid application going here. You seem to have a good grasp for the styles of mainworld. We would like to see you try a Moria Hall, styled along the lines of the New West Gate Hall design and the style that has been tried out at /warp UWestgate. Good Luck :)
