    I have to say, It's not blowing me away...

    It seems to be aligned wrong in Firefox.. That is unless you meant to have it way over to the right...

    The flash effect to load the navigation into place just get's annoying after the first time. I'll let you in on a little secret: Flash is on it's way out. It's going the way of the dinosaurs my good man.

    You could make a stormin good site with simple XHTML and CSS. No flash required. It would also be standards compliant and fully accessible.

    I'm interested in your work and I'd like to help out. I've PM'd you anyway.

    LAter man.
    No ma'am, we in IT don't have a sense of humor we're aware of.

    It's very nice, and for such a young age, almost astonishing. The overall content area needs to be a bit wider, and a new page, maybe an "archive," could hold some of the news that is making the homepage very...long.
    Also, for the navigation, there is no need to use Flash. Use rollover images...the overall effect of the Flash is distracting.

    Happy designing,

    Very minimalistic.

    A little too skinny for my taste as well. Maybe widen up the content area and it would look a little better and more inviting.

    The "PortFolio" portion of your website does not have the borders on the side like the other pages. -- Why is it spelled "PortFolio?"

    As mentioned previously... The flash on the top is un-necessary. Revert to simple (x)html and css.

    Needs some sort of logo at least, rather than just plain text.

    Your CSS is a bit weird in a sence the the classes and ids are not easy to distinguish and editing would be a pain. Was it automatically generated in something like Dreamweaver?

    And tables? Look into creating the website using DIVs rather than tables. If you don't know why a simple search on Google or the like will yield tons of results for your reading.

    I also, noticed you had a bit of JavaScipt... What is it doing?



    Off to a very good start and it looks that you have potential. Good Luck with it!

    I'm wondering why I can't right click on the non-flash portions of the site, is that what the javascript is doing? I also don't like the way your "powered by solid gold" link isn't on one line. Overall, the design is nice and clean. Its nice to see another young designer (I'm 15).
    Edit: You have two character sets defined:
    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <title>::Aesthetic Designs::</title>
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

    Add a stepped border between the write and the green. this would make it look a million times better.

    The flash is annoying I have to agree.

    The right-click disable! OH MY GOD!!! you're kidding right! That took all but 1 second to enable again! *disable javascript* done! VERY amateurish to have that.

    The site doesn't blow me away either but it's not bad. You have a bit of a weird issue after the first paragraph of "Footage is life" Not sure what's suppose to be there. I was looking at it in FF so I switched to IE to see but it took too long to load.

    Looking at your code ... wow! What's up with this??!

    Code:
    <p class="style8">&nbsp;</p>
        <p class="style9">&nbsp;</p>
        <p class="style9">&nbsp;</p>
        <p class="style9">&nbsp;</p>
    
        <p class="style9">&nbsp;</p>
    and this??!

    Code:
    <p align="center">&nbsp; </p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
    Oh and BTW ... age is of no importance in web design ... not in this day and age!

    Code:
    <p align="center">&nbsp; </p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
        <p>&nbsp;</p>
    This usually happens when you use the Enter button to move an element down in a WYSIWYG editor like FP or DW.

    One major problem that I found is that the Flash doesn't work at all on IE7. That means that you have no nav or logo.

    Good attempt. Keep at it and repost here for more input.

    Make it wider. There is not reason for it to be that small width-wise. I can express the complexity of your code with a simple smiley O_o
