The project was made with the aim of printing on clothes. Main theme was Battle of Kliszów in 1702.

I used images of Augustus II the Strong and Charles XII of Sweden. Also I used images of Hussars and the Swedish army.
For each of the images I used Pallete Knife filter and then I masked them with Kyle's Basic Sable Inker brush (by the way, great brushes - https://www.kylebrush.com/). In results, I got brush marks effect, seemed unfinished.

The background is in the shape of Polish territory at that time. The red color symbolizes Poland and blood. I used Kyle's Basic Watercolor Round brush.
