Apparently people are a fan of the exterior on many of my builds, and a couple of people have asked how I do it, so I'm starting a little thread for people that want some help, I've prepared a couple examples of ways to spruce up your exteriors. I have two examples, a wall and a tower, if you want to ask for ways to make other types of builds better, I will expand the thread and try to give you more advice. First I will give you a quickish pep talk on how I like to do exteriors, then I'll post the pictures I have made up.

First off, my number one policy is when focusing on exterior, "add as much shizzle wizzle to the outside as possible." This helps to give depth and makes the build more interesting. Another tip is to use blocks that help in transition from any sort of protrusion to the main wall, good ones are fence posts, steps, and cobble walls. Another thing to keep in mind is accenting the main walls with bits of other blocks built right into it, like wood logs in corners, quartz in small little nooks, and stained clay. 

Now that you have hopefully read all that, here are some captioned pictures.

Again, please leave any questions, requests for other types of builds, and comments below. Have a good day.

This guide to building is great. It highlights the main things that are important in building exteriors. Even though I don't have AS much of a need for it. I am sure this is one of the most helpful tutorials to building if you consider yourself not so good.  cheers
