    Nice Void, I can imagine the epic construction of the castle that awaits in the next WIP. Though, those blocks on the right look messy.

    i have strong reservations about your architecture and foreground oziris. the foreground areas where tiles are visible just aaaareeeen't very nice, a tad bland really, and the close up inflated trees with the stretched textures isn't brilliant, that's due to wc3 models i know but still.
    on the architecture, firstly, style. your bridges are brick, your well is one of those brick models with the cartoonish wc3 human feel to it. the statues are also humanoid evidently. however the main part of your architecture is the orcish kinda stuff of clay and wood, and it just really doesn't feel quite right along with those other objects.
    more to the actual objects themselves, the tower and the wall is great, i really like that, but the gate on the right seems a bit strangely placed (why would they have a gate going in there when they seem to have a ringfort around that castle?). The buildings on the left are kinda clumsy-looking and when they're not the main focus of the picture, you should usually have kind of little details and rewards for the viewer, you know, like the well on the right. I just personally dislike the left foreground.

    void i think you should stick to using the frosty and shit rocks rather than the high res ones. in such a wintery place they look a bit off. and then make the castle like 925x more cool plz

    The stars look cool, but the stars aren't out even at sunset, let alone daylight, especially on such a foggy day. Kinda looks weird.

    its a magical junkyard it can have stars all it wants
    no but really the ones that are actually inside the clouds look weird. the bigger ones above the clouds look ok, but the ones in the middle and that cluster above the trees to the left that are inside the clouds, it just doesn't work out.
    i hope you are doing something with the right side of the picture cos it looks weirdnshit

    Fladd, you should somehow make it all darker and that water pool should be oil!
