I am Digital Warlock Bytemoth, and this is my corner of the web! In contrast to the personal archive at CD5K.net - which is where I put my older works - this extremely creamy dream retreat is constantly refreshed with sweet little streams of new stuff to dip your face in.
The 32x32 icons appearing on this site were (mostly) sourced from afactor's Iconolog 1.0 and converted to PNG with BeCy Icon Grabber. Most other images were found on various archived Geocities sites and optimized.
