well, for a personal site, that would look gravey. especially for your first one. although ill agree it is really really really busy, but thats alright. just keep practicing, and go look at other websites to understand how some things work and stuff.

Good job, keep it up :]

Well I kinda like the text, but i diddnt work my ass of it eather cuz it's suposed to be mostly an example text, what really matters is the layout itself.
And well yeah the web may be a bit dark, but i dont think it makes it look bad, it'z zupozed to be artistic yah see? :D
And no, man where do yah see a transparent black box?? o_O Am I blind or is it j00? xDDD

I personally don't like it, the banners are wierd and awkward looking. Try using smoother effects. Also, the layout could use some changing.

hooray for basic filter **** ups in photoshop
hooray for 0% knowledge of alignment
hooray for 0% knowledge of typography
hooray for too flashy designs back in the days when internet was hot (talking bout the 70s here)
hooray for trying tho... start looking at other (professional) sites to obtain the keys of a succesful webpage design, dont rip layouts, just get ideas on alignment, typography, navigation etc

ps: sorry if i sound rude... but this was the nicest and kindest way for me to put it (i wanted to post "it sucks" first)

Sorry but if that was a website I had just entered I'd close it within seconds. That is way too hard on the eyes. Think about it, a layout has to be comfortable to look at over a reasonable periods of time. Also it needs to be properly aligned so it can be sliced and coded. And that looks like it would be far too hard to slice and code because it's a whole image that doesn't extrude vertically, which would make it a layout smack-bang image in the middle of the page with small arrows to scroll content (which I personally hate because they require no skill what-so-ever as the 'coder' draws HTML layers).

Basically, my advice to you is try to use slightly weaker colours, less confusing and simple fonts, focus mainly on placement, layouts are all about appeal, easy navigation and flow. A good way to go is to make them a size which fits in the majority of browser resolutions (basically so it fits onto a 800x600 screen resolution) and always make it so that the layout can be extended downwards indefinately. It's easy to start off making a background and building on top of that, instead of making one huge image. For a first layout it's a good try though, so well done.

Woah.. If you cant take crits then dont post your works.. Even if its your first time, posting means you accept crits. Being bad or good. And you say he flames? Well newsflash, what you just did comes close too a flame. What he did was a crit on your site.

And i'd have too agree with them, its too flashy and too in your face for a website. Websites need too be a overall picture, not a sig that throws itself at you.

And judging from your current sig, i'd say you can WAAAAAY better then this =]

Yah see what I mean? I also misunderstood the ripping part so his post got more on my nerves than it should have.

But anyways I thougth it wuz good for a starter but I guess it dosent even look good, I was to ocupied making it look flashy and I overdid it. Taking a glance at it now I see what you all mean, it's way to busy for a web, I did it too siggieh like :laff: Thanx for the critiz all.

PS I don't have a website myself as I say in my first post its a simply layout for a friend.

don't let bolteh provoke you sakuma.

The site should be less detailed. use a static simple background. no fancy texture. (fancy texture is a definite no-no aswell because the loading times of the site will be much longer aswell). also it's a bit too dark, I suggest combining some more colors. as in more white and light-blueish. so just keep everything clean, and not so many damn textures to give people headaches ;) a site should be relaxing to the eye.

Take a look at www.2advanced.com

Look at how that site works, look at the colour combinations and blending. This should be your rolemodel =P

Gonadz thats such a horrible reference... I mean look at the site... not even, first look at the title :laff:

2 advanced ( it speaks for itself )

Anyway... even though its your first.. its not so good. I mean if its a website thats about YOU, then it would work because it might fit what YOURE all about

But anything other than that... scrap it and delete it and make sure it doesnt come back.. then make a new and better one
