If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen the beginnings of this, but here is the finished piece. It's meant to be a castle that also looks like the king that lives there, or vice versa. I did think about adding more detail to it, but thought I'd end up over-complicating things. Actually, thinking about it, I might add a brick texture to his face...
