    Hi, people. Okay, so I've got the design for my personal site, and I really like it, except that my graphics aren't as "snazzy" as I'd like them to be. Anybody got any ideas about what I can do to make it look a little cooler and not so flat like it currently does?

    Here's the URL:

    Thanks in advance! :classic:

    You're weird. But you already knew that

    I like your homepage. Has character. Characters, actually... Japanese, I think. Don't change it :P

    I'd change the banner up top and get rid of most of the black in it. I'd also add roll-over or mouse overs on the nav menu.

    Your black lab looks sick reminds me of my sisters dog :P i like it nice and simple just look for a few photoshop effects and mess around to come up with some complexity in your banner.

    it was a fairly slow load for me..
    good use of colors but i think you should add more of a difference between the dark red (maroon i think) and the black.

    Its nice and simple which is good for a personal site like this one.
    I cant see much that i dont like. good work!

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'll see what I can do with the banner to make it cooler.

    Oh, and I was kinda going for the weirdness when I wrote the content...Of course, where there's weird stuff, there's equally normal stuff to offset it (at least I hope it does!)

    I like the design and color scheme. The banner is simple, you may be able to find a nice banner tutorial on www.good-tutorials.com that will produce a banner that fits in with your site. My only other comment is mousovers for your nav, I think white text on mouseover would look cool. Nice site, good work.

    Tested in Mozilla 800x600 56k modem. Nice, fast download and a clean, uncluttered design. Could do with a bit more content perhaps. Good luck with it.
