Hello @TyGl20, 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! Pretty clean application, however I feel you could go into more description into all parts. This artist application is being marked as in-progess. Good Luck!

P.S. dm me on discord to help you with those pictures, however if that doesn't work out; put the coordinates of the themebuilds so we can visit them!

Hey TyGl, I really would like you to finish your Orc Structure TB. This way I can give you a proper review of your artist application. Keep up the good work! We are really looking forward to the next steps in your road to artist!

Alright Ty this looks quite good so far! Here's what I'd say about your current builds.

Your sewer details look great, can't say much wrong about them.
The osgiliath house doesn't look right. I'd suggest taking another look at the guide and at the finished houses. You need a lot more vegetation and grass/dirt/mossy blocks on the ground. Also you'll need to sometimes rebuild your house a little because it's often too ruined (from back in the day) so it looks better if you repair some stuff and remove some weird unstable stuff.
The orc camp looks okay, but could use some more details around the place, some rocks, a road, crates, tents...
Your moria houses are very nice, maybe add some supports to the ceiling.

I'd like to see a real structure from you, maybe a gondorian house or tower.

Good luck!

I must say that TyGl is really good at doing jobs, he learns really quickly and has an open minded view and is good at details. I would like to do a small project together with him if thats alright? He could maybe help me on some of the halls I got assigned to in Moria?

Can we promote him to Artist already!?!? Over the past few months, both Palladian and myself have been very impressed by @TyGl20's progress on his way to becoming an Artist. He has completed builds throughout Osgiliath and Moria, clearly grasping the concepts and even adding his own flair to them. His approach to jobs and plots is enthusiastic and open minded, learning quickly the skills required to complete the tasks set to him.

It isn't up to me however, that is only my thoughts.

Hey Tygl, good job on this application so far :) Keep it up!

Here's some feedback on your themed build: the forsaken inn.

- The building is called the forsaken inn, not the forbidden ;)

Vegetation:
- Avoid mixing blocks in the ground so much, it makes the ground look very messy. Only in areas where there's less light, more water etc, ... you'll need to mix blocks to show that. (So no reason for it here)
- Use more grass to detail your ground (look at belfalas grass hills)
- Try adding trees! Trees add a lot to your build.
- Make clumps of flowers instead of using them all over the place.
- Mushrooms usually grow in areas with less light.

Structure:
- Your structure is in a bit of an old style, I asume you used this style to fit in Eriador, but as an artist you'll most likely always built in a style more similair to Dol Amroth, Anorien etc.
- I won't explain how to change your building to that style, as I think you should rather built other future themes or project in this style to try it out.
- Just take a look around Dol Calen, Dol Caranthan, ...

Thank you for your application. I hope that you can understand the feedback and use it in your future builds.
