In Progress Duke0fWellingt0n's Artist Application

Name: Duke0fWellingt0n
Date Joined: April 13th 2019


Interests:
When I originally discovered this server I was quite interested in a more medieval style like Gondor, however now that I have been on here and have worked in many places I have found a new love in Moria, It is more than just the style of the build, my favorite part is the cave aspect, I can't describe it but there is something about working there that I prefer to working above the ground. How some places are great halls carved into the stone and others are dwellings that mix with the natural caves and seem both developed and natural. They are actually quite similar to elvish builds in that way, blending into the terrain.

Motivation:
Originally when I joined I saw how much was done, and was disappointed on how little there was to help with, I was very wrong. Some of the estimates I have heard say Moria will take another 10 years, not even including Mordor, Erebor, Blue mountains, and so much more. It is clear that we will be working on middle earth for a long time. I hope to help with this long process, I have never been in a Minecraft community like this before, before this I played only mini games on huge servers where you would be lucky to see a person again. So I am glad to put my efforts towards building this world.

Hello Duke, also remember that to have an active artist application: keep on updating with pictures and descriptions on your main post, and then a reply ""UPDATE" to the thread. Even though we don't reply to every update we can see how you are growing and staying active in the community! Glad you are applying and very organized application!

Hey Duke

We decided that you would finish your Lake Town TB before we review your artist application. You are inn the same position as Dahl were you activity is really good and we are really happy at your participation in jobs/plots. We only need a finished Theme Build to help you continue on your road to artist. I am really looking forward to your finished them build. I wish you good luck on finishing and on your road to artist.

Hey Duke

This is by far the craziest artist application I have seen. Only thing that's lacking are some more builds by yourself.

Anyways here's some feedback on your Bree House:

Exterior:
- Avoid even centers (see roof window on the left)

You also chose to go for the Eriador style, however this style is quite outdated. I'd rather have you try to implement the style we use in Gondor on your Eriador builds.

Interior:
- Avoid long/big, but low rooms.
- Try adding in beams or some kind of supports to your ceilings everywhere. (for example see Dol Caranthan)
- Try using a stone floor on the bottem floor, it usually helps to make the room more interesting. (just don't use exactly the same mix as the walls)


I'm quite excited to see progress on your city, so be sure to continue that and/or a theme. (I want to see as I said more of your builds)

Good luck!

Hey Duke,
I've heard from multiple team members that they would like to see more solo builds from you, so I recommend working on some themed builds too.
Keep it up though, this application looks wonderful.

What I'm really wondering is how you've done so many jobs in such a short time. I didn't even know that there had been this many jobs!

This is a smaller update however this contains many more solo projects as well as larger builds.
I have also made a new sections containing larger builds to show people what to look at rather than 20 random paths.

Hey Duke, here's some feedback:

Storage Hall - city
- The long, thin shelves don't look very stable at the moment. Try making them wider or adding more pilars to support them.
- I would recommend not using connected textures feature as most of the players will see your build without it. (the textures will also most likrly be removed from the Dwarven pack on a later date)
- The floor patern looks pretty good :)
- The pillars are nice and thin, though you'd need more if you intend to have them hold up the entire hall. (otherwise add some bigger support pillars)
- Try to make your pillars allign, now they make this kind of cross pattern, which would work, if there were diagonal supports between them and a differently shaped roof.

Storage Wall - City
- Same story here, it doesn't look properly supported with the thin pillars at the bottem that aren't directly below the top ones.
- The block usage is again quite nice and it does feel dwarven.
- I'm not sure how you intend to put a roof on there ;) Guess I'll see on the next update.
