    Thanks! And, I'm sure your art doesn't suck. We all think that of even our crappiest pics we take in the parks, but when we get a second opinion (usually on MC in a TR ) we find out they're not so bad, after all.

      Thanks, that helps.

      I wish there was an art section.

      :C

        Oh just you wait for it - it will be truly spectacular! Once I conquer that, I might even attempt a 0D version.

          Hey, dland_lover, I've been following your thread since you posted in the Disneyland in 3D thread. Thought I'd throw my 2 cents (plain) in here.

          Like those who've posted before me, I'l risk the redundancy by saying "Your MSPaint version of SB Castle is FANTASTIC!". Really, through your efforts I'm learning to see details and colors on the Castle that I've never opened my eyes to before. I say "learning" 'cause I think sometimes viewing anything with a change in "perspective", helps us learn, grow, and appreciate the "thing" (object, person, idea, etc.) oh, so much more!

          Please keep posting your works-in-progress as well as your full-work shots. They give us insight into your artistic process and kind-of a "cliff-hanger" approach to your work (we all can't wait to see what you'll do next).

          On the two color variations of your Castle you posted:
          Firstly, thanks for linking to the daveland pics of the Castle. I hadn't noticed so many color variations before. They're very useful reference photos to compare with your Castle color variations.
          Secondly, I blew up (the size of) the daveland photos until I had large pixels for the front elevation sections (of the Castle) in question. My color sense may not be well refined, but I didn't see any pixels that had any pinkish-tones to the gray. I did see bluish-toned gray pixels, but those might be due to light reflecting off of the nearby turret roofs (which were quite blue, I think). Like I said, my color sense may be "crude", so I could be completely bonkers on this point!

          Anyway, thanks for giving us versions of your Castle with different color variations. It gives our noggins and "emotional aethetic" internal organs a needed work-out.

          I'll be looking for your next, great Castle update.

          P.S. I agree with Datameister, point. Your MS Paint technique with the Castle is more accessible to me (artistically speaking) and feels "warmer" as well, than that 500-hour MS Paint example over in DeviantArt.

            By the way, ignore what I said before about the gray. I was wrong.

              OMG you just made me all warm and fuzzy inside. ) Don't worry, I'll keep on working and posting. And I, too, now notice details and colors in the castle I've never noticed before. Plus, I can do a pretty good quick sketch of the castle (what I've gotten done, anyways ).

              If you check some of the more recent shots on daveland, you'll see that they did add more pink to the castle. So, you weren't totally wrong.
              Like this one (in which case they had changed some of the roof tile patterns, as well), taken in 2003:

              FYI, I adjusted some of the colors of the augmented castle, which I'll be posting soon.

                As promised, here's the augmented castle in which I tweaked some colors:

                  Nice. Looks much better than the pink that's on the castle right now in real life.

                    You know, 6 months ago, I would've called you crazy. Now? I kinda agree with you.

                      --CONSTRUCTION UPDATE--


                      I just wanted to show you guys what I'm working on now. I don't know how much longer until I'm done with that new segment, but I'll keep you posted!

                        --UPDATE--


                        I have now finished another section, part of which you've seen in my last 'construction update'^.




                        I'd also like to let you know about a couple things I'll be doing with my posts. When I have something new to post on my progress, I will have one of two messages at the head of the post. Either:
                        1)"--CONSTRUCTION UPDATE--" means that I am showing/posting a work-in-progress pic, so you know that I haven't walked away from this, plus to give you and idea of what I'm working on.
                        2)"--UPDATE--" indicates a new section has been completed, and I'm posting a 'complete' shot of the castle (thus far).

                        I just wanted to let you guys know the meaning behind those, and this way, you'll know what to expect/look for, right away, when you wander on in here.

                        I hope my little ramblings haven't confused anyone.

                          Sorry it's been so long, but I haven't been working on it at all, until today.

                          So, I want to show you guys what I'm working on right now. I'm starting to experiment with the stone blocks, at the base of the castle (which you can see a basic working model of at the bottom). I've also added some turrets, and have started to add in the gold railing.

                          Enjoy!

                            Truly impressive work on the stones! I don't know how you do that.

                              Well, I'd show you but, there's that whole "I live many, many miles away" thing that kinda gets in the way.

                              Maybe I'll take some video, and upload it. However, I don't want it to feel like I'm copying you, Joe. Even though I kinda am... )

                                    Love the block colors and textures. The blocks seem spookily 3D (hope your not slippin' into that 3D world). Uh oh ... I have the urge to reach out and touch 'em!)

                                    The turrets and gold railing are fine too!

                                    Keep those blocks rollin' .. er, stackin'.

                                      Also, for those of you who would be interested, you can check out the Photobucket folder I'm using for this project. You can see all progress, from the beginning, on one page.

                                      ...I just realized this last night. :blush:

                                        Please, be my guest! In fact, I'd actually be really fascinated to watch you work. If you'd rather not for the sake of keeping your techniques secret, or if you just don't want to, that's cool...but definitely don't avoid it for my sake!
