Once upon a time ...

Made for Textures Only ~ Competition #98


Original image with thanks to Shadowgate


I used 'outlines' and 'shadows' to get the effect of a drawn tower. If you want some more information about how I made the tower look 'illustrated', you can find it here.


Textures & background thanks to

hokkey: blue automatic

deborah gwinn: ttv . dirty . neutral

rubyblossom.: free to use premade background


The painting & the story of Diane de Poitiers can be found on Wikipedia. Diane was the mistress of a French king, Henri II. He was married to Catherine de Medici. During his life he gave Chenonceau (amongst lots of other gifts) to Diane. When the king died in a bloody game Diane was immediately banished by Catherine from the castle.
