I am speechless. If you need a helper, I am here. I don't know how well a builder I am, but if you need something that involves symmetry(you build half and go work on something else, ill build the other half) then I am of use.
It's not that it isn't good. It's better than anything I've ever done, for sure. My major problem is that the colors are just bland. too much repetition when you get close to it. It looks great from afar, but there's no love in the details.
Wow, I didn't realize there were this many more comments, hehe.
To the people talking about bland textures, remember this was made in 2011, where we had a lot less blocks to work with, lol. Also, we had to take serious measures to get it that tall- the height limit back then was 64 blocks, so we actually had to build it in a massive hole, hence the tiered landscaping, haha.
To the few people who asked about the design, provided they might still care, the reason it came fast was because I was used to analyzing historical plans in an art-history and design context. For a person who actually designs churches, the modules and patterns these use are all very standardized, and hence very easy to quickly combine into a new work that is directly based on the precedents.
