    Hey! This is my first ever independent big-build, and I am actually pretty happy with the way this is going! I have just built a small amount of the exterior, but planned nearly all.

    Please tell me what I can improve :)

    This image makes it look super small, but it is actually quite large :)

    The right-tower is not finished, only a quarter of its body is done.

    I can't judge it too much since a lot of it isn't done, but I think it looks like a pretty good start. I know you already made the base, but in the future, the curves might base a bit better. You make the base a little to diagonal. The next thing is depth and small details. Things like slabs, stairs, fences, and other similar blocks can really improve a build. But I like the star so far :D

    @Terrarialover11 What should I do for the walls? I always struggle with walls, ceilings, floors etc.

    For the walls of the castle you can add loads of designs with slabs stairs and fences. As long as they match with the rest of the build choosing which ones shouldn't be to difficult.

    With the floor you just need to make a cool pattern and add on to it. You can add stairs in the floor to add some detail too, usually works well to outline things. [​IMG][​IMG]
    I also don't do to well with ceilings, but I usually like to make sure they look congruent, because usually I do they exterior first and that leaves the cealing pretty messed up, but it also kinda the same as the floor. Just find a pattern and continue it if it looks good, for castles and those things I like to add chandeliers too. Unfortunatlty a world I had with cealings kinda messed up while I was messing around with some mods, so I can't show you can example.

    This is a playlist of building tips that are really helpful, and if you watch most of them, they can help you with most of those problems :)
