Stuff that just doesn't fit anywhere else. (As if our other threads don't run off topic already.)

I think it's due to the image resizing code I added to the forum months ago so people wouldn't stretch the forum out. I've noticed that when the image tags get used a lot on a thread it just bogs things down. Normally if the image is within the guidelines I've set (no wider than 600 px) and doesn't need to be resized there isn't too much of a delay in loading but when the images need to be tweaked by the code the load times will get longer.

I've edited munki's post and linked the images he posted with HTML instead of BB code and resized all his lazily posted large images so the page should load faster now.

I think this is my favorite photo that I've ever taken, and it was ruined by light leak from a faulty film magazine. :(

I felt bad for Velesa, so I did something for her too. She even has the Paw of Approval on her armor! :rofl:

I'll try!

I always sort of regretted making the mouse wings blue and not pulling the color from the flowers into the wings so I put it in photoshop, which I don't use very well, sucked the color out with the sponge, and gave it a peach tint.

I drew these pictures of my little brother and a friend while they played video games. It's the only thing I've done artistically that I'm not embarrassed about
