as i already said on irc: the statues are absolutely brilliant.

but the shading of the bricks is wrong. the highlights should be in the upper right corner and not the lower right. I'll make a fixed version of the basic wall tile.

Edit:

Looks nice.

I like the statues, I don't think they fit in though. They're very smooth, look more like resized images. Did you draw those?
Another thing about the gate... the arc looks odd. This is the way you build an arch:

About the capsule-shaped part. The right bend has highlights it should not have, as you know the light comes from the southeast.

Nevertheless good work.

Everything I was about to say has been said, the arc looks strange, wrong light and the statues look smashing :). Thought I'm pretty sure that the griffin's are in a slightly wrong angle aren't they?

Bigger windows for the gargoyles to "nest" in!
It looks ridiculous crowded.

Tarm with all respect, but those are reliefs not sculptures. :D

You might want to rethink the inner edges of the arch since now it looks like a texturized cardboard prop into which a hole has been cut.

i think iru just want to make sure about the angle, i assume the arch isn't finished :)

I think that the arch still needs some work.
It doesn't look very substantial, it would look better if the arch had stones like the image in Modanungs post and the below link IMO.

well acctually, i draw only arch's devel, not arch. i want to ensure that arch's angle is proper.

Maybe the arc should be vertical at the ends instead of sloped. To make the transition from arc to straight more smooth. If you know what I mean.

I decided to change arch shape to more rounded.

Arch's columns IMO are a bit to dark (will be improved in next version), also gray parts of things above arch are unfinished. They are without bas-reliefs and there is no shading there. Also whole construction need to be polished.
