Something for the weekend - Part 142 - Castle in the air

There were some great ideas in our last countryside "stile" challenge. This time, I thought we should go bigger, as well as much more remote. So, I bring you this castle high in the mountains. What will you do with it? Whatever it is, you better get it done before the weather closes in 🙂

 

The “rules”:

* Anything goes, as long as it meets the forum rules on decency, copyright etc

* Anyone, and everyone, is welcome to have a go, whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert. This is not just for our forum "regulars".

* There are no prizes apart from the chance to practice, show off, or bring a bit of humour and fun. Don't be shy, join in and have a go!

 

To download the image below at its full pixel size, and with an embedded ICC colour profile (sRGB), hover over the image and click on the circle with the arrows at the top right. Then, when the image opens in its own window, right click and choose “Save Image As/Save Target As” (or similar depending on your browser).

When posting back your image – please use the Blue reply button in this first post. If posting a comment on someone else’s entry then please use the grey reply button next to their image post.

 

Have fun.

Well that's certainly saved on the heating bills Rafael !  I like the molten rock flowing down the mountain. That might also be the first Game of Thrones reference in SFTW, although someone will now prove me wrong 🙂 

 

Thanks for your comment on the image. I created it using Blender 3D, World Creator and Adobe Substance apps.

I like the mythical image Jain. It goes with the angry sky.

 

The second reminded me of one of those home decorating TV programmes. It's make your mind up time 🙂  Good job with the animation.

Thanks! The animation expresses my indecision about what color I wanted to make the castle... your comment about the home decorating dilemma is funny. I wrote a book on Home Renovation once and basically, that's the underlying thesis.

 

Also, Dave, when you say, "I created it using Blender 3D, World Creator and Adobe Substance apps," I'm wondering if you have ever presented your process for a Tech Tuesday? If not, I would love someday to see how you work to create such terrific images.

Thanks Jain

I've done a couple of sessions in the past (when they were Tech Wednesday's). I'll see if I can pull something together for a future session. The apps, and my processes, have moved on a bit since then.

I know that trebuchet Jacob. It stand near Loch Ness, but should do a suitable job on the castle from that vantage point. 🙂

And Dave, in my very first SFTW entry it had just made a hole in one; also a round tower.
