    Trees suburb! everything else, but MOST especially the ruins texture are way to blurry for the sharpness of the trees. I would suggest different textures for the keep ruins.

    A quick reality check: That house is only around 150 square feet on the ground floor. By way of comparison, my one bedroom apartment is about 690 square feet. (Living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom.) Each of the towers is less than 10 feet in diameter, which is manageable, but quite small even so.

    Very nice! I like the new direction you went with the trees. I might snag this to use for a game sometime if that is allright with you

    I do agree that the textures in the building stand out because they are so blurry compared to the ground, water, and trees. A sharper texture would make the image appear more whole.

    Maybe it was built by a smaller-than-human species.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I hadn't realized how blurry the objects were. I blurred them in the hopes of making the image "softer" but it didn't really turn out that way. I went back and fixed all the objects I hope they are better. As for the scale what can I say? I am HORRIBLE at scale. I don't know why I get the 1 Square= 5 Feet thing stuck in my head and next thing you know.. POOF...there it is even when I had NO intention of making it THAT small. Any way I fixed that as well. And Wannabehero your welcome to use this if you wish.

    After some more thought and a good hard look at this I realized It just wasn't very good. I went back and remade all of the elements and made everything much bigger. I realized that I had too much forest and not enough encounter. The title says "Forest Ruins" after all not "A small under-scaled castle in the middle of a giant otherwise unremarkable forest" . So I present the "Forest Ruins" version 3

    I like this much better, you got rid of the heavy stroke on the walls, etc.

    You might want to redo the turrets without the heavy stroke since everything else doesn't have it.
