Abadoned Mansion Inspiration


I was looking for inspiration for the spooky mansion in The Grotto's Secret so my character (Kelby Wade) can come upon lots of scary obstacles when she is following a trail of strange leads her deceased brother left for her.

I found this lovely image on 13 Beautiful Abandoned Places In Britain

I loved how this skylight gives an eerie glow down the stairs. I used this image to imagine a similiar setting for the top of the stairs where Kelby spots the baddie in The Grotto's Secret.
