    Whoa...interesting look. I look forward to seeing how this turns out and am interested in how you are doing it.

    BTW, is that some adult content I see on the second floor? We might need a parental warning.

    In the pantry?
    They're both females. Wait, is that worse?
    In some revealing armour at the most.
    They're just lazing around. Life was pretty slow back then.

    When you say interested in how I'm doing it do you mean like tutorial steps?

    It looks almost like mid-evil paintings seen through a shadow wall placed within an image of a castle?

    On re-reading I think you meant 2nd floor as from the top. Well, that's the royal bedchamber and that's the King - rather muscular with the left knee bent which accounts for the bulge and yes - he is totally alone in the room.

    You're spot on on the look. The castle itself has 2 different layers with one layer cutout in certain places that have rooms for a different blend effect for the room layers.

    I was looking at 2nd floor right hand side, looks like 2 people - one bent over the others lap with their rear end showing :O

    Forgot to mention that yes, I'm going for the medieval painting look - in particular the choice of textures for the rooms and the blending effects. I guess that's what's called impression painting because for the life of me I can't find the:

    Both the person on the left and right side are showing Knees above their armored boots . However they are very big and round for the scale so I can also see the suggestive possibilities .....
