How long have you been a member of this project?: 27/12/16

How old are you?:18

Where are you from?: Wales (Britain)

Why do you want to help with this project?: I LOVE the Lord of the Rings, and I’ve been playing Minecraft for several years. I was looking through LOTR Minecraft creations on the web when I found you, and after watching a few videos of the server I knew I had to join. I would be beyond myself helping create this world. I’ve done small LOTR projects on Minecarft before, like Bag-end and Dwarven mines, but I play on Xbox normally so I haven’t had access to this kind of scale. I’ve spent a bit of time already building on my plot and exploring the world, mainly the shire area, and have been blown away by the sheer scale and detail gone into everything, from the small bridges you come across in the wild, to having toilets in the houses! I really want to be part of this world and to help it develop into Tolkien’s masterpiece.

Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to?:I’ve read The Hobbit, Unfinished Tales, the Fellowship of the Ring, and am currently half way through the two towers. I also have the return of the king, the silmarillion, tales from the perilous realm and a dictionary of Tolkien, which I will be reading when I get to them. I’ve seen all the LOTR and Hobbit films, and I have the LOTR trilogy extended edition which I make an event of watching each Summer.

Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with?:
I’m pretty good at the architecture side of things, as a pose to interiors. I can learn pretty quickly, which could be seen in the contrast between my first attempt at a Harlond house, and the one I’ve put on imgur. In all the time I’ve been playing minecraft I’ve pretty much only built ‘old-fashioned’ style buildings; castles and medieval type buildings rather than modern stuff, so hopefully I’ll fit in nicely in this world.

Other relevant skills: Fantasy is my favourite genre; LOTR being my favourite films, and TES my favourite games, it’s not really a skill, but I’ve got a lot of enthusiasm for this sort of stuff.

Your exteriors look really good, but the interior work, especially the harlond ones need work, Id suggest looking around harlond a bit more, and trying another house, or just updating the current interior.

Thanks! Alright I’ll get to building another one now

Hi, I’ve finished my third Harlond house,the interior’s changed quite a bit.

Hey, this is my fourth Harlond build Also since my first application I’ve finished reading the two towers.

It’s not bad, but the front feels kind of ‘flat’. Try to create some more depth.

Alright I’ll get to changing it, but I’ve got exams this week so it may be a slow reply
