I am very happy to finally be able to call this complete and share my first full-sized finished project with those who may be interested. :) I have been on and off with this since November, with a month and a couple of weeks break in-between then and now. I created this alone, with no help from anyone else.

Originally I built this solely because I wanted to create a world of my own within Minecraft, with no aspirations other than seeing it through and completing something that meant a lot to me personally. After it was finished, I decided to apply for the Angel Block Society with it. Those who play with me on Divine are well aware that I am hesitant when it comes to groups and teams, but to me ABS falls into a category of its own as it a society rather than a team, and simply strives to celebrate individual builders, and contains several of the artists whose worlds inspired me to purchase Minecraft almost two years ago.

This project is best viewed in default without any shaders, and was primarily constructed with night toggled on, though it can be viewed in daylight as well. I recommend checking out all of the screenshots, since they mostly all show different parts of the project, and a good number of things had to be left out due to the 20 screenshot limit. :)

The renders were made by Droolie, Barbarian, Iskillia, RebirthOfShien and DawidG. The project was built on Divine, where everyone has been very kind and supportive. ^-^

I wrote a rather extensive lore section for this that I used in the building process and for my own sake, but in the end I decided it would suit an upload of this kind better to use a shortened version that is more likely to be read.

***Lore***

Monarch, artist, prisoner of her own closed realm, the masked queen paints her world alone. Without fear of shame or failure, she executes on every intention, dream and whimsical desire. It is her world, and no one else's.

Peering into brilliant crystal mirrors, she observes the vast, coloured landscapes of her domain. Her eyes ubiquitous, perched atop tall spires, embroidered in tapestries and carved into the very walls of her monopolis, no detail escapes her. On her behalf, fantastical airships seek out impossible visitors from the outside world.

In a different time, she roamed her world freely, but as her painterly obsession grew, so too did her fascination with the great citadel's singular machinery. Deeper understanding came at the expense of humanity, and bit by bit she perished, until the mask was all that remained. Now she paints, waits, and hopes. Though on a whim her fantasy may end, and with it her domain.

Hi i saw your works, pretty amazing. I was wondering if I could make cinematics of your maps?
Should I link my channel as portfolio?

Hello, and thank you. :) You can make cinematics if you want to, just make sure you credit me and link back here.

Bear in mind that this was designed with default textures strongly in mind, and it would probably look very strange indeed if you changed that ^.^

I use Realistico and of course i'll give you all the credits.
I would love also to include you in the cinematic, what is your IGN? I just have to download your skin and use it with an npc while recording.

I made it a personal goal to avoid looking at it whenever I was around that area to not spoil the overall project. I am glad I did. It's incredible and joyful and beautiful to say the least! I wait with bated breath on the application!

Great use of atmospheric techniques. Loved the trees in a frame inside the structure. Perhaps some more functionality would give some more life to the projet. Less symmetry, more movement and it would be even more amazing. Great creation

Firstly, I'd like to point out to anyone reading this that the renders don't do this build justice. You really have to see it in person, in order to grasp the size and extreme level of thought and design that went into this project.
Secondly, this build stands as proof that Idle is a master of her own style. Her other projects, such as the contest entry, and previous build, match this in an excellent way. I have no doubt we're going to see some great stuff from her in the future.
Lastly, I'll just conclude that this is a ridicilously well-built structure, with a wonderful concept, and mindblowing execution. It's a loud yes from me at least!

Good luck! =D

ABS is a fallen community, so it's likely you'll make it in with this.
Well, at least, they dropped their standards entirely.
The build is nice, it's reminiscent of Mysidia and old Pwegoable, with associated palette and style to circleight and Wonder's work.
Or maybe mr_marc's first works..
Anyway, easy to see where you got your influence from, having been in Divine a couple times there's some decent builders hanging around there. It's a solid start, I wouldn't say old ABS standard, but it's a good start and I hope to see you put more out, whether you get in ABS or not.

ok had a look ingame (thanks arieben for letting me see it!) i love the interior and the lamp/chandelier stuff outside. it's a pretty huge copy paste job, with little detail and is simply large and colourful. the roof has the same problem as circle/mr_marc jobs, the map is simply too small in height so you can't do much about it.
no harm there.
otherwise, map looks great. pretty great reconstruction of the aforementioned style.
I saw the queen and the paintings she drew, i thought that was a pretty fucking cool touch, i love builds that have a story or some meaning to them, or at least some idea behind them. that's what seperates them from the meaningless crap and puts you a cut above the rest.
Otherwise, at risk of sounding like a complete and utter asshole, i stand by my previous comments.

Can't say much about the copy paste thing but for the lack of detail part, there is little detail done with stairs and slabs but the amazing composition and colours I think make up for what some might see as "lack of detail"

Neat. I love how the build shows character. Good luck.


(maybe "neat" is a "lil" underexaggerated, i remember all the time you put into this, which is impressive enough, i just think the terrain could have used some work :P).

This is incredible Idle! A very unique structure design with a beautiful balance of colours and organic shape. You are very talented and I wish you all the best with the app! I can't wait to see more of you cos when I saw this on Divine I was shocked that I had not heard of you before :o Anyways, I can tell you have spent hours and hours on this and you should be proud of the art you have created. Love ya <33
