    I have yet no idea how to avoid cliché here (maybe by HANGING from the clouds instead of being on them...), but it sure is a topic with possibility for some epic scenery :3

    I will attempt this potentially pansy-assed cloud castle with as much Bam-Pow Woo'ha as I can muster, that should hopefully avoid any of the verboten cliché pitfalls. I think it'll be a great challenge to stretch me out of my comfort zone. But I think it is a cruel challenge after our attempt at cyber mastery.

    Sketchy thumbnail attack! Is this too messy to begin with?
    EOW 85 Cloud Castle
    It's hard not to be inspired by Blood Elf buildings, or the Oocca's City In the Sky (Twilight Princess), probably as those were my favourite games x3

    Before I go any further... please tell me if this has to be on clouds or made of clouds, or just in the sky? It's some kind of expression in English, isn't it? Cloud castles, I mean.

    I am going to try and depict Morlan's 'Castle Black' from Steven Brust's Jhereg Novels. A flying castle of black stone with a transparent court yard thousands of feet in the air.

    That couldn't be considered a standard cliche 'castle in the clouds'.

    Here is a very quick rough. Made without my wacom on that tiny little finger pad on my laptop... Wacom. Oh, how I miss her.

    Smile Not your everyday cloud

    Thought i might pip in some inspiration. Earths not the only planet with clouds, just the only one with clouds that wont kill us. For example brown dwarves have clouds composed of vaporized iron! Thought id share this info i got from history channel's the universe. Could you imagine a hellish castle atop a storm of molten iron? fun! hope this sparks ideas

    Okay so here's my WIP, trying to avoid cliche and do something that stil is in this realm of physics, no magic, no fancy science.

    i have no objections to fancy physics, or magic even or the dwelling of mist bourn elementals or what ever

    Don't misunderstand me I love imaginary science and magic, I simply thought that removing those might lead to a less common kind of image.
