These remind me of squidfinger designs, which I love. They'll go quite well with lasciel's beddings.

Thank you!!

i checked out squidfinger designs, i think only one of those wallpapers are his, all his other patterns are awesome but too small of details for walls

there is some really awesome photoshop patterns and brushes on deviant art

4 of them are squidfingers patterns that someone has ripped off and claimed as their own on deviantart it looks like - that's a shame considering he makes his stuff freely available.

that sucks, there were so many patterns on deviant art that most of them are replica's, it seemed like everyone was ripping off everyone else

I try to keep everything labeled so I know what to delete if something messes up my game. I wish more people would file their downloads like you did.
