Excellent lighting! I've haven't seen anyone differentiate between the light rays and where they hit the floor or objects like this.

The inside wall shadowing is nice, did you do this in DJ or as postwork?

I really like the floor tile. Can you post it or link to it?

You also have several great objects I don't recognize, are they from the DJ forums or somewhere else? (yellow furniture, bearskin, bunkbed)

Awesome map Middleclaw

Love what you did with the shadows on the walls. Postwork?
The light rays are great. A shame two of them end in a wall and had to be erased a bit. In DJ2 you will be able to blend the rays and the shadows better though

Bogie: all the art you mention is from DJ art packs ... looking at all the art, I'd say ALL the art is from DJ art-packs

The wall shadows and lighting is all postwork

To be honest, the idea of object shadows only came to me just as I was about export from Photoshop. To me it gives the room a more realistic feel And depth.. I can post a tutorial if ye like.

Kepli is correct. ALMOST everything s from the default install of the Platinum Edition. The only custom art is the sky hook holding up the tapestry in the bottom right corner. That is just two coloured circles for improvisation sake.

Can ye really see light going through a two foot thick stone wall? I cannot see it myself.
