Author Topic: Japanese-esk Arch - [scenario build]  (Read 3955 times)



About
I've always been fascinated by Japanese architecture, the shapes and subtle atmosphere. I've always wanted to start out trying to make these buildings, but never had the time. So I recreated this small build as a start up.  This is also the first time i've ever attempted at building a tree. Let alone a cherry blossom... I'm posting this as a quick check-up on wether to keep going or not. Again, this is my first time trying to recreate these types of buildings, so dont be afraid to give some constructive criticism on what I need to improve on. Cheers! c:

Please note: If you couldn't read for whatever reason, this is an EXTERIOR only build. Hopefully, with enough review, i'll be able to build a bigger full scale project. Also, my stone-age computer is sooooooo fast that I cannot produce shadows or the greatest quality of pictures so bare with me.

This build uses ONLY default bricks and Trueno's colorset. Feel free to rate x/10

Small, but that's the idea.
The wall could do with a bit more variation, add some small round blocks or holes into it.
I can't help but feel the poles supporting the big top roof look a bit too small

Other than that it's good, I like the tree so good job with that!

Well, I initially set out to achieve a look like this,
However, I lack the patience and skill of variation. /:

I agree. Scaling is quite a bit of a problem for me. Which is why I prefer the style of improv better.

I think it's pretty nice.

Oh it's not bad, it could just be improved a little bit
It's all still good

I agree, I also think that those two black bricks are way too dark

I like it, would be cool if you made a whole temple or something to go with it.

I feel like the roof is a bit too... tall. Could be just me though.

That tree would not be flowering with snow on the ground..

Very pretty build. I can also see you are an abstract artist/thinker.
8/10 on the build.
The reason why it's not a 10 is because it is a bit too small, and the grey doesn't go too well with the other colors.

It's a scenario build, intentionally built to that size on a 32x32 plate.
If I wanted to make a larger project, I wouldn't have made it strict to 32x32.
I do appreciate the input though.
