    Heh, I really had a feeling someone would post something like this before I could put up pics of the castle I'm working on. Mainly cause it's taking me forever to deco. :p

    But yeah! I have to post a pic now so you know I didn't copy you! :D

    Those floors both look fantastic :bowdown: (just need a tutorial posting now :thumbsup:)

    I love the way you have designed it to look good during the day and night (talk about raising the bar).

    My favourite bits are the table with the horse on (is that also made by chopping pantagrams???) and Sarsmi's storage area and Granfather clock....genius.

    Oh and what have you used to make the eerie green backlighting, and the fingers on that clock?

    Sarsmi! i bow to you forever on finding a way to make a book case with the books standing correctly! oh, thank you! Thank you!

    And that grandfather clock is genius! it looks like the hands are a knife and spoon/fork? but what is the white square behind it, that fits so well?

    its interesting to see you didn't get the smear on the abbatoir square, that i did. it came out with bloodwood too, so thought it did with all of them. it looks fabulous with out it :) it took me two days to make my floor, so i'm guessing it took you almost a week! holy cow, thats one NICE looking floor!

    Sligachan, yes, the table is two bits of an abbatoir, but you can use anything for the top bit, it even looked rather nice with just a goza on top.

    The green lighting is communications crystals, tucked up under something. Some things it glows through, some things it doesn't, so you have to experiment. you have to have very little white, normal lighting, or it gets lost.


     
  9. how did you do the floor and the clock?

    The clock is made from a simple elven armoire, a shadow iron knife (left) and fork (right), an amethyst in the center, and a light rarity 4 fan dancer dojo stolen painting dyed with tokuno white dye. In order to get everything high enough you have to finesse a little bit.

    Place and turn your simple elven armoire. Drop the painting on the same tile at the armoire's feet and raise it 6 times. On the tile to the south of the armoire put down two small tables, then in this order put the amethyst, knife, and fork. Lock everything down, remove the bottom table then the top table.
     

  15. Thank you!
