Hopelessness by 1footonthedawn Hopelessness by 1footonthedawn
The thumbnail shows next to nothing of this piece. I've never seen a GIF animation quite this complex and I bet you never have either. If people view full, they'll understand why this means so much to me. Otherwise, frankly, you really can't see much at all. This 100x100 thumbnail situation really's not like I get that many pageviews, DA.

The lovely lady is [link] by [link] The dungeon steps are [link] by [link] The waves are by Reflet, an awesome little program. I also used Adobe Photoshop 7, Jasc Animation Studio, and GIF Movie Gear.

This is how I felt most of the last two years, unable to leave the house much, largely friendless, in physical and mental pain, without resources or support. So this is dedicated to the Scooter Store and the people who worked with me from there to get me mobile again, Hope, my new friends on DA, and my husband who didn't dump me when I was in the dumps. It's also dedicated to my sister-in-law who doesn't like my art much and purely persecutes me about my health, but wants to see me get better.

So Roberta: The sea is a sea of high-fructose corn syrup and it's ICE COLD as is the dungeon chamber there.

I'm so sorry to hear that. :hug: It is not a good place to be. I notice that when I did the artwork I DID leave myself a way out. I hope you have one too. :hug:

I am so inspired, not only by your work here but by your attitude to your dissability. Its easy to be positive when things are going your way, so to have faith and carry on smiling in the face of adversity is wonderful. I only wish I knew how to do these kind of pics, also it sucks big time we can't see the full image of this. Congrats to you and best wishes :D
