    Working on a personal site - so far I have a basic layout which I would like comments on, and I also need some idea's.

    I'm thinking of making those parachutes roll-overs so that they sway side to side on hover. Since it's a personal site and my name is Sam, I decided to do a bit of a play on the name - hence the shot up plane.

    The plane image needs a bit of work - but pixelling a plane is kinda tricky, so that will do whilst I work on some of the other stuff...

    edit - I also need title idea's - not quite sure where to put it or what to do with it...

    Not sure I get the play on words with "sam" and the "shot up plane". But that's probably just me

    As far as the site goes:

    1) Make it bigger. You can slice this JPEG up when you're done, and turn it into a webpage, but make it bigger, so you have more to work with.

    2) I like the idea of rollovers, but the animation I'm not so sure about. Making them sway would definately be cool, but making the parachute different colors, or making the parachutes have people attached to them on mouseover may be cool too, and be more bandwidth friendly.

    3) As far as ideas go, here is what I would expect some of your categories to have:
    Pixel: Some pixel or vector art
    Sketch: Some art you've done that looks rougher, like colored pencil stuff or something.
    Theory and Words sound similar, but you may have separate ideas for each of them. If you can do it, go for it.
    About: Would have information about you.
    Links: Hmm, I have no idea

    Well there's my two cents, take it for what it's worth, and keep us posted on new developments! :ichatcool:

    spluf: i think what he means by sam is surface to air missile

    wozza: nicesite, i agree with spluf that the parachutes should sway on mouseover.

    you could even make it in flash and when it is clicked a person fly in on a parachute and stop next to that link

    Agree with slufdaddy, the site should be bigger. but i personally dont like your color scheme. Quite dark.
    I think it's too simple, you should use mouseover effect on the links.
    Other than that, good start.
