Deviant Dreams > Artist's Corner
What do you guys think? This is my forum for the site. Sorry for so many post before on my site. But once I get some projects done in maya I will start to upload them to my gallery.

Deviant Dreams
This is my FINAL version of my site. I will be uploading more to the gallery when I get some projects done in Maya. Going to attempt and finnish a project in Maya.

Artist's Corner
This is the forum to go along with the site. As you can see at the bottom is a contest section. I have allowed members to start their own contests along with a big site wide contest. Hope this gets to be some what big. It is also a place for the members to post their work.

Let me know what you think and you Have to sign up at the forum

Thanks in advance,

I really dont like splash pages on a web site the whole "click to enter" thing. It seems kinda pointless to me. You can convey all of that info on the second index page.

Forum looks nice, a bit different to the other pages, but still nice.

Good Stuff hope it gets popular soon for you

Yes i must say i HATE splash screens. They waste my time. Planning on assasinating the guy who thought of them. I am using 1152x854 desktop resolution and i can BARELY read the words. Im serious i have to higlight them to see. Maybe a slightly darker colour would help in conjunction with a slightly higher font. One of the things i learned in Web design is that you must check you're page at as many resolutions as possible.

I like the genral design tho. I'd like to see you're gallery working.

Your site has REALLY come a long way man! great flow, and very usable design

Good job!

My only crit, is that the font size is a pixel or 2 too small.
However, I'm running my monitor at 1600x1200, so EVERYTHING is smaller to me, so just ignore me hehe...
