I hate that stupid 'you can't use this!' stamp icon thing. I like this one. Yes, you can use this art, just credit [link]!


I always dream that I have wings...

This is the single most satisfactory image I have done. It really only took a few hours... but it's vibrant, enchanting, and wonderfully spoilerific. It's been one year since I started Between Places and some of you have been with me from the start--that first page inked in Photoshop with flat colors... to this.

Thanks for being with me for a year of this whole fantasy webcomicking thing. This is my current art direction, I hope to see many more panels following its path, and I hope you guys enjoy it.

Oh yeah! Hit the download button for a .zip file containiiiiiiing...

Wallpapers of the following resolutions!

1024x768
1280x800
1280x960
1440x1080
1600x1200
1680x1050
1920x1080
1920x1200
1920x1440
1440x900
320x480
480x272

The last one's a PSP sized wallpaper. I might upload it seperately into the PSP section. That one's not just a resized crop, I also edited in the lines for where your PSP scroller will go as I have one myself so I know how to make a wallpaper for them. And then the iPod resolution... yeppp.

Wallpapers. Go nuts. Thanks for supporting Between Places for a year of this. Or just looking at the wallpaper.

Thanks! I really think the lighting is the draw to this picture. I've never painted wings before so I'm glad you like them!

Awesome wallpaper. Downloading it now, gonna either set it as my main or add it to my wallpaper slideshow. ^_^

I feel like I should point out one single thing I like about it, but right now I really just... can't. I just like the whole thing, I guess. :P

Aww, thanks! I actually like it myself and happen to be using it, I think it's a good piece of art. Better than a lot of what I do, anyway.

So, thanks for the comment!

*feels a bit out-of-place for not having 'been there from the start', but just wants to say that he likes the pic mightily, and that he agrees with the artist's comments about it entirely*

*notices he also seems to like talking using astrisks to indicate what's going on in his current mental state, is most grateful for the comment. Didn't expect everyone who saw this to have been there from the beginning but figures most of the people who do will have as doesn't happen to have many watchers or friends.*

*thinks asterisks are quite useful for saying things without, err, saying them...!*

And hey, you have watchers O_O And friends. And if not, then I'm going to feel all sorry for you (which you wouldn't want!) so you should really come up with a few soon :P

Ummm... right now about 95% of my comments are coming from you.

So... no. I don't have watchers. =( I do have friends but they don't comment on my art very often. =P

Lol, now I feel bad for hogging all your comment space O_O

What I /should/ do, of course, is ask you for your MSN. That way I wouldn't have to feel badly for flooding your gallery (and probably scaring off everyone else O_O)...

And hey, you have more watchers than I have, so don't ye be talkin' like dat :P

Feel bad for hogging my comment space? If you didn't comment I would be getting none, is all I'm saying.

Also, MSN would be useless. I don't chat. It's not that I couldn't give you my MSN it's that the likelyhood of you catching me online more than once a year is entirely unlikely. I never took to IMs. Flood my gallery! I don't mind!

As for watchers, sure, I have more than you, they just don't comment or fav my art. =P

Psh, a non-chatter? I didn't think you peoples existed these days :P I find that extraordinarily... Extraordinary. And scary. I must say, you probably get more things done with your time than I do with mine, because you don't chat, but... Aaaah.

You should chat!

In other news... There are news-like things happening, apparently!

See, the trouble with these comments, though, is that they equate to a chat, it's just in rather the wrong context - I always feel I should be commenting on the pics and whatnot when I'm flooding someone's gallery, yet I'm not, so I feel badly, as it's basically MSN in a non-MSN place :P

That being said... *continues to flood with comments*

Hee, that's why I don't like chatting. I chat with a couple people... one to write with and one's my boyfriend, so yeah... I find chatting takes up too much of my attention when other people don't return that attention and... uhm...

Well, let's just say I have a single attention span. I can't double chat. If I chat with one person that's the only person I chat with at that time, and then everyone wants to chat with me becuase I don't come on very often without pre-planning it and then I have to divide my attention, or if I block all but that one person, they only reply every minute or so because they're multitasking and then we don't actually TALK...

The thing with comments is that they're not realtime. We're exchanging one or two comments a day, and that frees me to pay attention to other things, to write and draw and everything while still chatting with you. I mean, if you want to switch to email, that's fine, but I do enjoy this system. It's sort of forum-like. I love chatting over forum PMs and email, just not realtime. XD So this isn't a chat because it's only a few messages a day... whereas IMing is realtime and several messages a minute, optimally...

Yeah.

So please, flood me! This is my only social interaction! (SOB)
