About Me:

This is me...

I love webdesign, but I am really out of practice. I actually went to school for graphic design and became a commercial artist but after my first job, I was laid off due to downsizing and I haven't gotten a position in the field since. It's unfortuneately been 7 years since I have done any serious designing so I hope that I can stretch my legs here.

Anyhow, like I stated before, I am out of practice so please do not get on my case about my first skins as they will more than likely be poor in execution. I apprieciate all comments. I will try to be as helpful as possible but I do want to state a couple of things:

First, I set my computer resolution to 1024 X 768 so those of you who use smaller like 600 X 800, or larger like 1280 X 1024, please be aware of this before downloading. I haven't started really coding in CSS yet so it's a little new to me when dealing with so many different styles.
Next, as a general rule the colors can be changed (unless it's been built into the color of the picture like preformed boxes). Many of my layouts have the colors for type and highlights pulled directly from the picture (My "Neon" layout is testament to how I pull color) so don't yell that colors don't match. Very rarely to I just put a color there because I am predisposed to it.
No, I don't currently view my layouts in Mac or Mac affiliated OS's. Don't yell at me because it doesn't look right in Mac OS X. I currently have no control over it. When my iMac (the only mac I currently own) can be set up again, then I will start reviewing them in Mac as well.
Lastly, I will try to fix, edit, adapt a layout IF I CAN! Don't beg me to change it to a different size or color. I will try to fix these as I go along but I may never change the color layout or size to fit other resolutions or tastes. I do this on the side while I work full time. Until I can devote all my time to it, I will not wrack my brain trying to fix everything that every person dislikes.

I cannot stress how important it is for people to leave reviews for layouts. If it is something important, of course I will fix it asap. But I like to hear how others would like to see it and I will dabble with the layouts from time to time as I recently did with "Caffeine Addiction", so that it worked with other resolutions.



Caio for now!

maybe you should have changed the picture's demensions a little so it wouldn't horizontally scroll. And the text is a bit hard to read with it ghosted out so far. Definitely not a page for people with bad eyesight.

awesome for such a simple color pallet. Great job!

Oh that is terribly hard to read red on purple like that... why don't you make the text area 30% or 40% white behind the words so you can read what is being posted. Also, I could barely tell what each link is. it's Very difficult to see. And who's artwork is that? I am sure THEY would want the credit that is duely owed to them. (and you say NO COPYRIGHT on the opening page?!?!? I bet the artist would beg to differ)(it also looks like the artwork was for a different layout) I think if you change those things, then I'll rate it... I don't want to take a chance and rate too low right now.

I would normally give a 4 for a layout like this but there are 2 main reasons for judging it a 2. Here they are:

1. The picture is blurry. Why is it blurry? It's because you had to take a screenshot of it. Why a Screenshot? Because SpongebobWorld.com doesn't allow right clicking of their graphics. So you used a poor screenshot and shrunk it down to fit your layout. Without permission.

2. You credited the wrong company! The picture is from Nick.com, not SpongebobWorld.com. They may have had to get permission from Nick.com to even use it. (which is why they have no rightclicking!) You colored over the Nick.com logo and then credited SpongebobWorld for a Nick.com graphic.

Sorry, but those are real pet peeves of mine.

darkmark.com/c.c?l=lyrics&t=Song/Poem%20Lyrics Look there. The Dark Mark page is one of the top fanpages for Harry Potter. The poem is at the bottom of the page. If you want, I'll get the page from the book and quote it exactly for you.

Starry-Skins... you are wrong about the quote. I know for a fact that it was Ginny's valentine.

malki the text boxes fit fine when viewing in 1028 x 768 settings (I only make layouts in those screen settings... why? because I don't want to fuss with other people's settings)

and what's with the "I'll give you a 3" when you already rated it a 5 in August?

Babyzai...

If you read what I wrote above (which means you OBVIOUSLY didn't!)... You'd see that there is an issue with this layout and Blogskins.com. But you didn't read what I posted to see that, DID you?


That's what I thought

Yeah, you're 17. You're only 10 years younger than I am. Don't attribute mediocrity with age. I was much more advanced with a computer (design-wise) at your age than you seem to be right now. You need to start designing outside of the box. Photo manipulation, more precise paintshop techniques... search for some good design freebies to work with online... it will open a whole new world for you.
