Level 67 : High Grandmaster Wizard

First off, I want to thank you all, thank you for all the support and attention you have been giving to me for over 2 years now. 400 subscribers... cool :)



Fargloom is a fantasy castle built in a style somewhere between medieval and dark fantasy. Every element of the castle is unique; there are absolutely no copy-pasted parts. This makes it look more interesting and very diverse - but still uniform.

There are 7 towers and 10 different wall designs, one house-ish structure and an enterance area in the build. A long street leads up on the top of a hill to the castle. Traversing the lava fall, a bridge leads to an addidional tower. The great variety in walls and towers makes the castle look quite spectacular, even though it's a pretty small building.

Most of the pictures are in-game screenshots with shaders (Sildur's and SEUS), the first two areCinema 4D renders. I used the resourcepacks Faithful and Conquest in the pictures. The terrain was made with WorldPainter, as usual.



Fun Fact: Originally, this build was going to be a cemetery. Apparently, it hasn't ended as a cemetery...

Once, LouizZ and I decided to build a cool dark graveyard. We wanted to start off with the wall around it, more precisely, with the corner tower of the wall. In the end this didn't fit for a cementry build at all, so I started totally improvising with it by adding more walls and towers.
Finally, it became a castle, a dark fantasy-medieval fortress. Actually, I really like the outcome of it :)



If you do so as well, make sure to show your support by adding a diamond or favourite. Of course, if you want to stay tuned and see more: subscribe!



Thank you! :D

Thank you, I tried a different style on that one than I usually do - was very fun building :)
I like the stair way up and I like the different towers, very lovely and exactly something I'dlike to be abel to build on my map :-)

The 2nd one shows the actual castle bit more, but the other one shows the little tower and bridge too... Both are good. I just preferred the second one for the blog post :P
