    Oooh, castles...
    Welcome to the guild charly! Have some reputation for posting your work. I like the fourth picture best, the castle located on an island. The first castle is nice as well though.

    3D castles are great. Hafnium, yours is going well - good job. If your wanting to be more historically accurate then I can give a few pointers. In old castles the inner buildings were always fixed to the outer wall unless this inner building was really big and looked more like a castle in itself. Then that one is the keep and the outer bit is usually just a wall with wooden buildings fixed to it. The other thing was that it was the entrance that was always the most fortified so you would need towers either side of the gatehouse. They also had a barbican which is a courtyard or raised platform at the entrance where they could mount an offensive to an incoming force at the entrance. If you had a bridge and moat then for sure thats the bit that needs defending, the rest wouldnt have so much need. The closest castle I can think of which is styled like that is Conwy. This shot shows what I mean about the interor buildings too...

    charly2008 - Those castle pics are great. Have you done any more ? I like the lighting on them which does not look so native sketchup. Did you use something extra ?

    Hi,

    The first three images represents a fantasy castle. The castle on the island is a historic castle which was located in my city Frankfurt at 1860. The last one is the old City fortification at 1650 (WIP).
