Date I joined: Late january 2016
Jobs I've participated in: Many roads, some fornost ruining, a few streams, one wall contest for Fennas drunin, and some farm jobs.
This is some pictures of a village I (alone) built on an online server:

What styles do I like to build in? I like to build medieval, mostly dwarven and gondorian, but I'm good at adapting so if I just get to know how a certain style should look like I won't have any problems building in it.
Why do I apply for artist? I really like MCME because I think it's an amazing projekt and I would much like to be a part of it and help it forwards. I really like the Lotr and The hobbit, I've seen the movies of course and I've read the silmarillion as well so I know what middle earth is about and i kinda know the story behind it. I am quite active on the server already and i will be online even more if there would be villages etc that I can help building on.
I hope this gave you a small introduction of me, and I hope you like my village! :D

Thanks for your application!

The builds you submitted look very nice and especially very detailed. I would however like to know how well you can adapt to our Resource Packs, and hence I'd like to ask yout o participate in a Themed Build!
Themed Builds start every Sunday and last for a week (with exception of Project Builds); you can claim a plot and then build your interpretation of the given theme.

If you add more pictures to your application, please reply to this threaf woth something like "update", so that I see that changes were made.
Looking forward for more submissions of yours!

The house looks really nice indeed :D However I'd still like to see how you can do on something bigger! This week's Themed Build should offer you a great opportunity for that! #8/16 - Tirith Aear

The tower is looking very nice, good points to mention about it is the choice and combination of materials: Many people choose a ton of different materials, or ones that do not combine well, this is not the case with yours at all; furthermore you clearly used the white bricks are "core" materials and the grey bricks as decoration resp. just for things standing out of the main shape. The shapes you worked out are also very nice and interestingly looking, especially the balcony and the small domed room at that height.
There's one major downside though: You completely missed the purpose of the tower! The Tolkiengateway wiki quoted that the tower had a bell in the tower, which was used to guide ships away from the cliffs. That your tower has no bell is a bit a pity!

Still I decided to promote you to Artist! Combined with your first builds you submitted you clearly show that you can handle the fundamental things very well (materials and detailing), and thus you should be able to do a great job as Artist!

Please check out the Artist Manual (Artist Manual) to find out what will change for you as Artist.
