Siege tower plot:

I decided to build my Siege Tower of this week theme build, these are some screen shots:

My name + Plot:
View media item 1533
Side + Front:
View media item 1528
Side:

Wheel structure:

After finishing this first Siege Tower i asked designer Tyran to have a look at it. He told me it looked nice, but it wasn't exactly what it should look like. He showed me a Siege Tower in the Plotworld, which he declared to be the best one build yet.

After seeing this Siege tower I decided to make a 2nd Siege Tower which would be truer to a believable siege tower, which would fit better in McMe.

Front:

Side:

Backside:
View media item 1525
Top:
View media item 1527
Wheels:
View media item 1531
Wheel structure:
View media item 1526
I think the second one is in my opinion a way more believable and more detailed build of the Siege Tower. The form and colors are based on the Siege Tower which Tyran showed me.

After this Errol advised me to build a wall and edit the landscape. So I decided to build an as big as possible part of the outer wall of Minas Tirith. I build it from scratch and it is almost exactly the same as the real wall.

The Wall:

Inside:

Fornost house:

View media item 1566
Fornost house i ruined and was pasted in the world by inferno. He was happy with it and the only tip the had was use a little bit less cobble types. He pasted a taller fornost building to ruin next.



Your interests:

I love building all styles from gondor to rohan. I love the symmetry of a dwarven pillar, the elegance of an elven city and even the darkness of a mordor building. Each style has its own challenge and i would love to be able to work on a project and change details to come as close to perfection as possible.

Your motivation:

My main motivation for getting artist is that i will be able to help out better with making this astonishing world even more beautiful then it already is. I love helping designers, this job will be a lot easier as a artist. For example eriol asked me to check a city on derped beds, i would be able to do it without him needing to be online to make a job.

Another reason is the ability to create and work together on projects with designers. Creating a believable and true version of tolkien´s beautiful buildings and landscapes. The love that many people have put into this server makes me want to help creating even more on this server.

Thank you for your application! I would like to give you some tips on what you can do to increase your chances to get accepted.

I'm looking forward to your screenshots. Thery are very important. Best are builds which use our >>texture packs<< especially our weekly >>themed builds<<. If you post some screenshots we will give you some feedback about your builds.

When you have new builds add more screenshots to your application above. Make a few of every build to show more details. Please also reply to this thread with something like 'update'. This will make us notice your new screenshots.

Aside from themed builds you can improve your chances to get Artist by helping with >>jobs and plotbuilds<< as you already did. Try to stay very active with jobs. When you finished a task for a Designer, remember to ask the Designer to give points to your application as described >>here<<.

Hey Darki,

Thank you for your application!
I have to say the perseverance and time you did put into your application and your first Themed Build is very impressing! Also that you ask other people for feedback and then even build an entire new tower to use it is very awesome. I'd like to ask you to participate in another Themed Build, because we won't need siege towers too often, but instead buildings ;). Keep working on your Artist app and your chances will be very good!

This just seems weird now.
