Ok, so it's Tuesday, but the hashtag still works. :)

I just came across the still-active thread on the Minecraft Forums of my first big project in MC, and with all the pictures still active on Photobucket (surprisingly, though they still go down from time to time whenever someone links to them), I thought I'd share.

Shadowmarch Castle

Image Enlarger


This is all the way back from Minecraft Alpha 0.30.  I posted it in April of 2010, but had been working on it for several months prior.  It was just Creative, but it was pre-flight and I didn't have the early flight mods installed.  It took a lot of time, especially given the constraints of the game at the time.  

Those who have seen Highmoor can certainly see the resemblance.  This was the project where I was trying out some styles and getting my Minecrafting legs underneath me.

For those who have read Tad William's Shadowmarch, I stuck as close to the design of the castle from the books as I could, given the constraints of the game and of the size of the map.  By current standards, it's excessively small and very poor, but it got a lot of praise in the early Minecrafting community....and even from Tad Williams himself (can't find the link), to my great joy. :)  It was also used as a pic in an interview with Notch for Rock Paper Shotgun

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy!
