    The structure of the castle is good, you've got the roofs right, and lapis lazuli is my favourite block! However you are lacking severe detail, using 3 to 4 blocks can make your build look very basic (Inside is empty). Although adding a mixture of blocks, as a blend can make it look more diverse, more interesting. Also stairs can be your best friend when it comes to detailing, they can add definition, and make the build emulate more layers. I copied and pasted one of your walls and tried to illustrated my point.

    In the image you will a mixture of all the stones, stairs to create patterns, and upside down stairs to make the structure seem supported and to add crenulations to the castle walls for detailing.
    I hope you learn from this, and have fun building :)

    It's very good design but could use some variation on the wall blocks

    Very nice :D I like the outside, and hope the interior looks legit! :D

    On my side though, I'm making a stonebrick city called Stamaroch City. Its gonna be awesome. It will have 4 plots, and 4 sections. Each plot one section. Nice job anyways topaz! Keep it up.

    No I didn't he only did the front and if you look at his to mine carefully it is different! He only gave me an idea of what I could do can I have checked with him too if this is alright and he said it is! Anyway there isn't a law of using a a type of style in builds that someone else uses!
