#**[LAST WEEK’S THEME: LIGHTHOUSE](https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/irx7xn/minecraft_biweekly_build_challenge_106_lighthouse/)**
#**Amazing builds this week. I personally had 7 written down as potentials for the top 3 (let alone the best build), so I apologize if there are any upsets or whatever. Very very tough week to judge.**
Well last thing I expected two weeks ago was that this challenge would go to a granite lighthouse. One thing I loved about this build was the colour. For fun, I’ve been reading about colour theory, and one of the compliments mentioned was when you use the same colour but different hues or saturations. This build is very red, and even the trees around it and the red/orange of the sunset also compliment it well.
Onto the build! Absolutely loved how well those blocks went together. You made a flat surface look very detailed just by choosing the right blocks. Interior was also fantastically designed, I loved the leaves in it, added a nice new colour to it.
Once again, really tough week to judge. Any of these builds could have been 1st. Loved the block variation in the build. Made the sea look really really good. Also, the lighthouse was well designed, with the chaotic block placement and different tones of colours really making it look unique. Only criticism is that I found your ground a little chaotic personally. The leaves had a bit too much texture for my liking I think.
The good ‘ole lighthouse of Alexandria! Loved the detail in this build. While the first place build detailed their build using block variation, this build used depth to their advantage. Also I must mention the cool fire on top. Only complaint is that for some reason the build still seems just a little boring to me. Perhaps it’s all the grey? I honestly don’t know and it could just be my personal tastes. Not that this makes your build bad! Still really loved it, there’s just some little thing slightly off for me that I can’t quite place.
Great job however!
Look up in the sky, is it a bid, a plane? No…. it’s a balloon…?
Yep, this week we’re going to be focusing on balloons. This may be a rather stranger challenge, or a little more abstract since all we’re looking for is balloons. So build a birthday party, a hot air balloon, a blimp or maybe the house from UP? It’s up to you!
Build something which is related to balloon. Possible ideas are: Hot air balloon, birthday party, etc.
