My first layout for the upcoming eFiction 2.0 [link] release.
It features images of the Marauder's Map from the 3rd Harry Potter movie. Instructions for using fonts, making custom images, and adjusting the layout will be included when I make this available for download. It's a very simple, basic layout that's ready to go the moment it's uploaded. Once this new version of eFiction is released, I'll be going back to work on a deluxe version of this layout that includes several mods.
(I wasn't sure whether this should be placed in the Anime or the vector wallpaper sections. If this is in the wrong place, please just tell me politely and I'll gladly remove it.)
So what happens when I get stuck on a web design? I turn it into a wallpaper.
This was a vector design that was intended to be part of my Naruto-inspired skin for [link] but it is just not behaving. I end up despising each and every layout configuration I try.
I set out to create my own rendition of the Rasengan jutsu using ONLY vector graphics, no images from the franchise. Here I took those courses and I've never posted anything to show what I learned or even tried challenging myself. I also wanted something I could put in my design portfolio that wasn't overtly anime or manga themed. (hah.)

Is in Japanese mythology a sun goddess and perhaps the most important Shinto deity (神 kami). Her name, Amaterasu, means literally "(that which) illuminates Heaven". She was born from the left eye of Izanagi as he purified himself in a river and went on to become the ruler of the Higher Celestial Plain (Takamagahara).
She is also said to be directly linked in lineage to the Imperial Household of Japan and the Emperor, who are considered descendants of the kami themselves.
