Castle and Village Number Two by Built4ever Castle and Village Number Two by Built4ever
Alright, here's the second try at a mountain top village/castle, a little bigger and more ambitious than the first one. Pencil sketch, scanned, color-tweaked, cleaned up and labeled on the computer. Maybe this one can be the International Academy of Traditional Architecture! Late for class? Take her to the dungeon! Note: File changed out on Oct 31, 2012.

Oooooh. As someone who wants to become an architect and loves traditional architecture and castles, this seems really amazing. If there was a school built like this, I would do everything I could to get in, no matter what.

Now yer talking! I thought about that, starting an architecture school with strict criteria for admissions, good drawing skills necessary, plus, must build/do construction in summer for credit. It will turn out a completely different kind of designer.

Yeah. ^.^
I bet there would be amazing and innovative buildings everywhere, and the architects who went to that school would probably turn out to be the most amazing in terms of skill and creativity.

I like the four tall windows near the top, and the tower set on pillars (bell tower?)

It's a very nice shape overall, as well.

Yes, as time goes we learn and experience new techniques. I always loved to draw, since I know myself I had a pencil in hand most of the times when I got bored or got inspired. But I'm still very young, this is why I search up good artists, I'm hoping to learn from them. You are one of those artists that I should learn from. I'm not good at drawing buildings, just getting started in them.

Don't forget to check out "Classic-Architecture" group, lots of other good pieces in there. My specialty is actually doing custom designs of traditional homes, but just drawing buildings is a much wider field of artists doing that...

I think we discussed early on that this could be theme park. I never did draw a pumpkin carriage. You?

Your fantasy castles astound me. I think mine are pretty good yet you make me look like a beginner, and I have been drawing off and on for thirty years. You are an inspiration for me to reach higher goals, a master at what you do. It seems you have no end of talent, a professional achitect who draws fantasy castles as well. How I envy your skill.

Clayton: Thanks for the very kind words, glad you like my stuff. I took a quick peek at your Deviant site and other website, so I can see the connection there between our stuff. Your stuff looks more like 19th century woodcut illustrations. Mine is more detailed because, at least partly, I have the unfair advantage of being a practicing architectural designer, so I live and breathe this stuff. You're doing castles, towns, harbors, spectacular settings, etc, and writing a story about them. I'm going in that direction too, thinking of a story for each castle. I already have them linked together as "The Infinite Village," stretching across the entire planet.

I noticed that you incorporated pyramids into several of your drawings. Do you think that ancient pyramids on this planet were actually unknown technologies built by an advanced civilization?

I'm about to post yet another fantasy castle. It might be posted when you read this. I imagined it to be built upon the ruins of a giant, monumental construction, used for an unknown technological purpose, perhaps similar to ruins at Giza or Teotihuacan. I'm trying to evolve the architecture and setting in these drawings, but even more important, I'm trying to create a story. Since YOU'RE the expert on writing, having written three novels, I'm sure you can appreciate that!

My goodness thank you for the thoughtful response! To be honest, I think man creates his "Mysterious or Supernatural" beliefs because he wants so much for there to be such things. The mind outstreaches the reality-- but who is to say there is no supernatural and no "Advanced Alien life forms" out there. I have never come across one but maybe someone has.
Plus I acutally believe in the power of prayer and the reverse-- the power of dark magic-- as well... All I have to say is don't look a witch woman sideways!
Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. You really should consider illustrating a young people's fantasy story-- your work is TOTALLY evocative of a faraway land where adventure awaits!
