Minecraft Bi-Weekly Build Challenge #24: Train Station via /r/Minecraft

Minecraft Bi-Weekly Build Challenge #24: Train Station

LAST WEEK'S THEME: SPOMENIKS

Gold

Atrufulgium

I personally thought that no one could make the graffiti work well. I thought it'd just look out of place. In this build, using the resources available to him (commands and armour stands) he was able to make some convincing graffiti on the face of the build. Now, focusing on the rest of it, I feel like these Spomeniks had a good style to them, mixing stones so they weren't too much alike but also they had a good shape. And the build was built with the terrain which all of us really liked (the judges).

Silver

KingKowen

I really liked the colours on these. The mixture of hardened clay (or terracotta now is it?) and stone really gave these structures a nice style. I found the shapes captivating and they looked alien in a way, with the twists and the squares in them. Also loved the red terracotta in one of them, a really good way of including that hard block in your build. A small thing is that the rainbow one, while cool, differed a bit too much from the style of the other ones and there was just too much colour in them. Maybe without the wool and just the red terracotta a stone it would have fit in with the rest? Still cool build and was really neat to see your concept art!

Bronze

WestinWarfightr

Like the vines on these, really gave them an old feel and also they blended with the terrain with the stone path around them. However, the first one (the star) felt a bit too flat and seemed to lack detail or a crazy thing that most of the Spomeniks seemed to have (weird curves or messed up shapes). The star seemed just a little to normal for this challenge, if you get what I'm saying. However, the other ones were very well done and were really cool to see!
