Twice in as many days

January 4, 2009

My capricious nature has got the better of me and I’ve gone down a whole new route on the skin front, though I still can’t decide if I’m happy with it or not. The very first layout I mocked up months ago went a little something like this:

First rough of site layout

First rough of site layout

Then after I decided i wanted to go a bit more pixel happy we were looking at something a little more like:

Alternate rough

Alternate rough

And now we have what we have which is fairly basic but at is at least usable (and includes a little bit of my favourite scribble). I get the feeling I’ll play with the appearance a lot and never quite get something I’m happy with!

Happy New Year!

Well it was only slightly more than three months before anything happened… It’s not quite there yet but I’m getting there – i actually drew most of the elements I’m going to use back after that first post but didn’t quite get round to doing anything with them, and in the meantime have started playing quite a bit of old-school Mario so we’re going to end up with a bit of a mash-up of the two.

i’m having a bit of trouble at the minute getting the header to work the way i want it to but to be honest as long as there’s enough here that I actually start using it that’ll do!
