Once Upon a -Evil- Time by fabriloddo Once Upon a -Evil- Time by fabriloddo
I've always thought it was worth to turn the dreamy castle of this shot [link] in a creepy and darker one...

Although I still consider it a work-in-progress, i think i'm pretty much near to end it.

*update*: as suggested by a few people, i worked on desaturating a bit the pinky castle.

BTW, any comment/suggestion/critique would be great... thank you :heart:

Let me start by saying this is insanely good! The detail shows me this was something you definitely spent time on! The title suits this piece of work very well. The clouds are ominous and the crows flying about, gives this an eerie feel. The colors you chose for the castle are a nice touch. It leaves me wondering if this was once a castle of happiness because of the pastel colors. I also like the way you put this upon a hill which also makes one feel "the evil is looking down upon others" Excellent and a show of real talent!!!!

Idk why, but if I wake up in a coma, then I want to be in this castle that would probably be falling apart, and much more.

Hey there! I really love this picture and it fits perfectly with a poem I wrote entitled "A Twisted Fairy Tale." May I use it as the preview image for that poem when I post it on here? I promise to accredit you in the description. It's ok if you say no, though, I won't hold it against you.

^ there's the link! I added the text onto it (the title, and the first line) but the picture is the same obviously. If at any time you want me to take it down I'll definitely do so! And I still need to credit you in the description, give me one second and I'll get that done....

This is very unique and amazing. You sure turned one sickening sweet castle into something ominous and INTERESTING. I love the way you did the clouds surrounding the castle, and I really liked the colors you used. Everything blends together so seamlessly. This is a fantastic deviation. :)

I'm actually in awe of this. I think it's so perfect and gothic. It reminds me of something vaguely Tim Burton.
Overall: gorgeous.
