    I decided to put up a simplistic design so it will not take away from the work I plan to put on my site this summer. I am not trying to get a professional design job from this site. My heart is leading me to greener pastures of artistic craft. I have many things I would like to experiment with. This includes anime, photography, painting, and animation.

    So, Tell me what you think. I may take the version numbers since they look out of place somehow. I will probably throw them into the footer of the page. The network link take you to network.zioncreation, which will have links to all the sites I am making. This will keep them all linked together.

    Cheers,

    Edit: Notice the color scheme of RGB for the three sites.

    Edit 2: Also notice the first link is the only one with a rollofver example. It is the same color as the background. The nav needs some work only if others think it does. Just let me know then what would be a good nav for a site a plain as this.

    Nice theme you have going. I'm not a fan of the nav font, I'd try something a little softer. Also, the content could use a little more distance from the top.

    I like them, very good. But I don't like the font you are using for the menu. The one in the header is fine, especially on the Zion Blog. I agree with splufdaddy that the content should have a bit of distance from the header though.

    Other than that it's really good. Nice, simple and clean :thumbsup:

    I've decided to go with a version of the Cornerstone font.

    Do you think this font is better?

    I like the Microgramma Bold Extend better than the other one but I'd have to see it on the design to tell.

    I have updated all the images with the microgramma font. I may show an example of it with the Cornerstone font since the Cornerstone font is thinner. This is made in photoshop, which is why I didn't bother to move the content. Don't worry because I plan to have the content one to two lines away from the header/nav.

    Edit: Note, they new images are the same links at the top.

    Thinner text or smaller text is needed, right now they look too big, and they almost read across as if they're a sentence and not independent of each other. The nav items are larger than your banner font, which looks weird.
