    Unfortunately, my programming skills are nil, so this means nothing to me. I do everything in GIMP, so if there isn't a technique (or a Script I can download or something) that can do it there, I can't do it.

    You could try using a displacement map though it would probably distort or blur the lines a bit.

    Yay! It's lovely, well done!

    Blurring the background has worked even better than I thought it would. It's like tilt-shift photography; it gives the impression of looking at a scale model rather than a drawing. Repped ^^

    The knotwork on the title is fantastic but makes the letters a bit hard to recognize. Could be easier on the eyes if they were given a slightly different color/shade.

    Ok, real final update. Recolored the knotwork around the letters, added a couple shadows I had forgotten, and gave a slight blur to the palisade behind the hill.
