#**[LAST WEEK’S THEME: CASTLE](https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/rubb33/minecraft_biweekly_build_challenge_140_castle/)**
Well this is a spectacular build. I’m so impressed how you made the build completely black and it still looked so good. It’s so challenging to pull that off, and you did it perfectly! Your location also helped, having the castle be in the middle of a white mountain.
I really loved this build and how “innocent” it seemed! A nice sandcastle! I loved the shape of it and the variation in the walls and towers. My favourite part was the small splashes of colour here and there which really added to the build and made your sections pop.
I really enjoyed the interesting palette to this build. Normally, you have stone (or one of the stones) or sandstone for a desert castle. I love the orange of this build and how you combined it with the blue prismarine roof.
January hits and school is back in action! While some are probably not looking forward to classes, why don’t combine something we all love-this game- to make it better?
Let’s get building!
Construct a school. It does not need to be big and can be a school of art, school of science, middle school, high school, etc. It must have one class interior (at least).
