Bloodbannerifyoucan (1) by sdiggman  

I am adding this statement to all of my images:


Note to all:

Each one of the AnnalsHouseBanner single images is made up of anywhere from 10-30+ individual hand created/modified layers (two have gone over 50 layers), then flattened and rendered as a single image.  

Each layer is made up of multiple images, either created by myself or modified from "stock" images.  I could not create my art without having access to and using a wide variety of "stock" resources such as textures, images, vectors, clip art, etc etc.  I am constantly looking for new resources and getting rid of inferior ones from my utility collections.  Like programmers say "GIGO"

To create the art you are looking at, I used the following:

  1. my favorite graphics program "paintdotnet" which cost me the staggering amount of ......nothing.  It is a free program.  

  2. For .eps files and vectors I use Inkscape - which rivals Illustrator and costs.............nothing.

  3. materials and images which I either hand-create or they come from one of my "toolboxes"  which are collections of the best stock resources that I can get my grimy little paws on

In my most treasured time tested "go to" toolboxes there are materials that I have obtained from some of the finest and most outstanding Stock Resource creators/suppliers in the world - I mean that literally.  Over time, I have finally tracked down the best creators and suppliers and found out where they were located, which is why I joined Deviantart in the first place.  

I have obtained some of my best resources from, and whole heartedly recommend, the following deviants among many many more (who I will add to this list over time)
