Look, it's been only 5 months since last manip...!
*facepalm*
I messed this up royally. Dunno whether I managed to repair it. Dearest *aurei helped a lot :heart: I was seconds from throwing this into trash.

A small gap in moss-covered cliff deep in thick, humid forest marks the place where a river cascades underground, forming a reservoir many storeys beneath the surface. A vast complex of lantern-lit silent buildings sweeps far in the dark, mingling with the natural caverns and cutting deep into the earth.
[Dark Palace]


Finally, another Dark Palace piece. I had three seizures, two heart attacks and five fits of rage while searching for stock. I still ended up using restricted photos. It looks like there's no unrestricted stock of the type I would like. ;_;

Hope the tower in bottom left corner looks alright, since I repainted the thing to cover all the annoying lichens. >D

17 hours straight, it almost did me in yesterday.
90 layers, not counting hidden layers and backups.
Architecture elements: ~lugubrum-stock *GothicBohemianStock
Waterfalls: *Dracoart-Stock
Brushes: ~spiritsighs-stock
The piece uses distinct 11 photos.
