Black Texture by Ethenyl Black Texture by Ethenyl
Hello everyone :D

Well it seems that this simple texture is really appreciated by you people ^^ As I'm writing Downloads have gone to 30K !

Maybe it's nothing but for me it means a lot... A real lot !

Thinking about how I started it, I just needed a cool background for my desktop, something simple, something effective... It will sound stupid but I'm proud for making it, at least I've made something that people liked ^^

For the people who use it, I hope you'll have fun with it. I'll try to get the original .PSD and add more resolution, big ones :D

And don't forget to credit the maker ^^

EDIT : 450K reached ! Imagine if I asked one $ for each download...

##########

For the companies out there who wish to use it, you're free to go but please, ask before using it.

Some have already used it as a Twitter background (ring some Bell?), an advertising background (for a duty-ful FPS) and even a Youtube movie background (for a not-so-serious FPS)...

I'm not asking for a contribution but seriously, it would feel so much better if you asked beforehand.

But of course if you feel bad about using such a beautiful wallpaper without giving a penny, feel free to contact me and make a generous donation :D (one can dream...)

I appreciate that! no worries, would I be able to get your e-mail, or a better way of contacting you? I'm at Smokewavestudios@gmail.com ...just so I can point you to any work I make that uses your image, and I'll always try to credit you wherever possible?

I'm gonna try to put credits at the end of this music video I'm working on at the moment but I have to run it past the band n stuff first.

Thanks again for the great work!

Paint it! Use this as a base background and paint whatever starts to take form. That is the way to explore.

I'd like to ask permission to use this on a commercial project I'm working on. When I say "commercial," I really mean creating a custom deck of reptile themed playing cards that I can vend at Texas reptile shows and exhibitions and feel less bad about being a stay at home wife. XD If not, totally cool man! Love the texture!

Thank you for replying! I totally understand, I find myself on DA less and less.

And I'm afraid START the project was all I did. :lol:  I got distracted with my new small business, lol. I hope to pick up the digital art again soon!
