Website v.1.2
Made some improvements on the artwork and added a few little details to the function of the site. I have plans of one day making the site even more interactive so you can get in close and explore, but for now I just wanted to get it working. I'm still having a problem with the images getting resized in the galleries so some of them look pretty aweful (if anyone knows how to center images in a Loader component let me know!).


Anyway, there it is for now! Hope you enjoy! :)

um what the hell chris this is awesome. Why isn't it live?!?! You know, if you need to market your skills, putting the site up would help a bit...

Thanks! Yeah the first one I posted was just using some crappy drawings I had lying around, so I'm working on redrawing it all. Still have to do the background clouds and make some water too, so I might be finished with this site within the next few years. :)

Simply awesome. I haven't got words for it. The way you pass from the main to the rest is pretty cool, and how the menus are animated is a very nice work!

Stunning. I love the surreal graphic itself, and with the motion, and the way you hung the navigation tools in there, just awesome. Great work.

I'm especially glad you like the idea with the navigation tools- I have been going back and forth on those for a while! Hopefully I'll get a second wind (and some more time) to add some more little treats- it's definitely inspiring when I get feedback like yours! Thanks!

Being technologically stunted as I am, my mind is completely blown by the...moving bits, and that you can click on things (I know there are plenty of sites like that, but they're made by nameless, faceless companies!)

And of course it has lovely aesthetics, but that's a given with you ;)

My only problem is that some of the pictures take absolutely ages/don't load, but that is most likely due to my crappy laptop's speed.

Yeah those little clicky moving bits are what really motivated me to learn Flash. It was a huge challenge because I am also technologically stunted, especially when it comes using computer code and math... my brain (or what is left of it) still hurts!

Anyway thanks so much for the kind words! Also good to know that there is some lag with the loading time. It was tricky to figure out a balance between making the pictures big enough to see and yet small enough to load at a decent time. It's a hard thing to test while making the site, so your feedback is exactly the kind of stuff I want to know! Now I just gotta figure out how to fix it! heheh

PS your 100 themes progress is impressive! I gotta get back to it too someday!

...maths?! You had to use *maths* to make that?! OMG. I am in awe. <bows down to you>

Glad to be of some help :)

I've got some more, which I finally bothered to scan in today, they'll be up soon :P But personally,I think quality is more important than quantity, so you're doing fabulously in my opinion.

You are too kind. I dont know if I deserve the bowing, and I would say "using" maths might be a generous way to put it. I copied a lot of other peoples' math and tried to bend it to my will, sometimes with success but more often without. I learned just enough to make me feel like a moron!

Well I suspect that it's more than I could ever do! And taking other peoples' maths and twisting it sounds just like something horrible like trigonometry XO

heheh honestly I don't even know what trigonometry is, so there! :D I think I made it to algebra or something in school.... it wasn't my strong side, but now I kind of wish I had payed more attention! Who would have ever though I'd actually need to USE math! :doh:

Haha, you never think you'll need it, and then you find that it's got its uses. I should probably try and focus a bit more while I've still got the chance I guess!

Heheheh, you are sweet! I'd actually like to make more sites like this for people, especially if it was something I could make a living at! ... but this one almost killed me, so I'll need to practice more so I can do it a little quicker and easier!
Thanks for the kind words!
