Wow!

You'll need a mirrored version for rotating.
I'm eagerly waiting for the first colors. :D

When you use 2x3 or 3x2 than you have to draw 2 versions. North-South and West-East.

Or you use only 2x2.

I find the build very cool!!!!

Nice!

Regarding rotations, you have three possibilities:
a) make it 3x2 - needs two versions,
b) make it smaller 2x2 - one rotation,
c) extend ground to 3x3 - add some souvenir stalls etc. around.

All right this time. This building will be great. But the no colored roof (house) is not ok.

Perfect!

(It does feel a bit empty - around the building is nothing at all - but maybe it is better in game.)

The shape is good but I don't like the mix of grey and white walls. Especially the part where the left grey wall joins the white house looks a little but strange. And the color of the tower's roof could be different.

Agreed.

1) You could either put more gray on white walls or more less gray on gray walls. There's too strong contrast.

2) A gray rooftop is not good. Use the same color/pattern that you used on other roofs. It's my suggestion.

The pattern was easy to make since it follows the straight lines. For curved surfaces, which translate to ellipses on screen (2d canvas), it's waaaaaay harder.

Have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle. Castles haven't grey walls but rather brown ones.

Greyish brown or brownish grey I would say.

Point is, it's pak 96 comic, so colors are kept simple and not necessarily true to life. I like the castle as it is now. A really good job. Love to see more (hint ;)).

I like the castle too, in it's current colors. Even that castle walls are more brownish in real, most people have "stones are gray" in their head, and this will trigger the right associations.

Anyway, can't wait for both to be included in official releases (or are they)?

Cool. You are a nice painter!

I think, the roof can be a bit darker and the red wood around the windows can be lighter.

Very very nice.

It looks like floating at the air (over the water). Can you make a little mirroring at water?
