LCBTC-R1: The Phoenix's Feather
Hello all! Here's my entry to the LCBTC (Lego Castle Building Techniques Contest)! My category was Wizard's Workshop. I've decided to make my entry a shop called the Phoenix's Feather. Please remember to rate, comment, and enjoy!
About this creation
Story: This is just a little background I wrote for my entry.
The Phoenix's Feather is a small shop placed on the outskirts of Cloveshire Docks. Run by Niea Shu, a mage specializing potions and cartography, this small building acts more as a home rather than a shop.
Niea resides in this shop, with the majority of her belonging being stored either on the second floor or in the basement, whilst the main floor is reserved for customers and items for sale. Niea also has a young protégé, a man, about eighteen, named Marlin. He is an alchemist in training and he helps her with her potion-crafting.


Now, onto the actual build!
Note: The photos turned out quite dark, especially the main picture, I apologize for that.


Main pic: Just the main pic again, not much else to say.

Sign: Next up, we have a sign, proclaiming that this is, in fact, the Phoenix's Feather. If you look REALLY closely, you can tell I actually wrote down the name.

Roof (left): I really like how this dormer window came out. I was originally going to use a boat (as seen here.) But I wanted to do a interior and that wouldn't allow for the boat technique to work and look good form both sides.

Roof (right): I also quite like this side of the roof, I find the chimney came out nicely. (The way of angling it wasn't my idea) Also, I had a suggestion about the smoke, though I sadly didn't get a chance to try it out.

Birdseye view: Just a top view of the roof, nothing more, nothing less.

Roof (detail): Just a pic to show the little roof ends (not sure of the official term), these were mainly inspired by the ends that can be seen on viking-build roofs.

Left wall: I quite like how this fishmonger came out, you can see him in more detail further down.

Back wall: Just the back wall, not too much to see. But wait! Don't scroll down just yet! This wall has a hidden feature. (okay, now you can roll down)

Back wall (slid out): Yes! Part of the back wall slides out, reviling the interior of the house. Bet you weren't expecting that. Well... unless you saw my WIP shots over on Flickr...

Interior (back): Here we are! The interior in all it's glory. A bit cramped, also a bit dark. But you can hopefully still see the details.

Interior (front): Just another shot of the interior, this time from the point of view of a customer. Also, I'm getting sick of seeing this when it's so dark, let's add some light!

First we plug in a LED here...

Then we plug in a LED here...

And bam! Lighting! Not much lighting to be honest, but it adds a bit of realism, right?

Interior (second floor): You can also see the interior of the top floor. Very cluttered.

Interior (second floor, figless): Just a figless pic of the top floor.

Figs: Now, here's all the figs that were included in the model. From left to right they are: Fishmonger, Marlin, Niea Shu, Cloveshire guard.
Which is your favourite?

Furniture: Last but not least, we have the furniture, just thought you guys may want to see them out of the model.
Credits: Table was inspired by this, candle was inspired by this, and the chair was inspired by this.

Anyway, that is all. I'd like to thank the judges for organizing this awesome contest! And good luck to other competitors.

Very nice work Marley! I love the cobblestone outside the building, the roof, and the furniture inside! It was a great idea to include an interior with lights! The only complaint I have is that the lime green looks a little unnatural on the roof. Other than that, very good! Thanks for entering the contest!

Quoting Roanoke Handybuck Awesome Marley! The cottage is nice, and the irregular base and the path look great! One thing I would suggest is not to mix the lime green with olive, although, to get the wizard workshop look, I can see what you are trying to achieve, also, the stonework is just a little too plain in some places, other than those small nitpicks, this is a great build! Keep it up! :D
Thanks Roanoke! Also, yeah, I understand what you mean. With the vines I wanted to use olive green, and, seeing as I only have five pieces, I had to use another colour, and that was the closes I could get. With the stonework, I see your point, it was hard to get a good balance between overtextured and undertextured. :P
