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.)
Created With: Macromedia Fireworks / Flash
Total time: 12+ hours
Included is a blank header and two tabs in JASC Paint Shop Pro *.psp and Adobe Photoshop *.psd
My copy of JASC PSP is very old (Version 5 from 1998), so these might not work well in some later versions. I can also save these in other formats like Illustrator *.ai and Fireworks *.png, but it might take me a while to save
Full Name: Violetta White Age: 16, Sixth Year Gender: Female DOB: May 3th House: Hufflepuff Wand: Ash, 10 and a 1/2 inches, with a phoenix feather core. Blood Type: Half-Blood Family Dynamic: Mother - Amy White (Muggle)

Violetta is the daughter of Cygnus and Amy White. Cygnus is the son of Alphard Black, who was removed from the Black family tree for giving his runaway nephew (Sirius) some gold. His mother is a daughter of Charis and Casper Crouch. Feeling no need to carry the name of Black after his parents death, he legally got his last name change to White in repesentation of his different ideals towards Muggles.
He fell in love with Amy, a single Muggle mother of one and they soon got married and had their daughter Violetta, named after Cygnus' great grandmother. Violetta knew about her heritage at a young age since her parents decided that it would be her choice to go to Hogwarts or not when the time came, and let her experience both the wizarding world (ex: visiting Diagon Alley, playing with toy brooms, etc...) and the muggle world (going to muggle school, taking dance classes, etc...). Her half-brother, Zack was also included in experiencing things in the wizarding world, yet is not magical like his half-sister.

Naturally talented in transfigurations and charms, favorite classes Anicent Runes, Magical Inking and Toning, Flying and Astronomy, and least likes Herbology since she tends to over-love her plants. Pet(s): Kitten named Isolde (golden eyes, gold and white fur) Light Background: Violetta is the first daughter of Cygnus and Arista White. Cygnus was originally from the Noble and Most Anicent House of Black, yet his father Alphard (1927-1988) gave gold to his runaway nephew, Sirius Black (1959-1996). Even with that, Cygnus was like his cousin and viewed people as equals so when his father died, he legally changed his last name to White. It was the start of a new pure-blood family.
During a business trip, Cygnus met and fell in love with the charming grand-daughter of Caspar and Charis (1919-1973) Crouch, Arista Crouch. It was less then a year before they were married and creating a proud family of their own. In November of 1990 they had their first child, a handsome boy they named Drake Sirius White. He would grow up blessed with the aristocratic, somewhat haughty Black looks similar to that of Cygnus' cousin Sirius, a clever mind that keeps him on top of all of his classes, and a natural talent at Quidditch to make him captain and keeper of his schools teams. Sadly, that school is not Hogwarts.
It was in May of 1992 that they were blessed with twin daughters. The oldest was named Violetta Kallisto White while the younger girl was named Alyssa Aries White. These two grew to have the grace, talent and eyes of the Black family, both similar and different in many ways which was shown when Violetta was sorted into Hufflepuff while Alyssa was sorted into Gryffindor. Offical Friends so far:
Hikaru Talia Main of Hufflepuff
Lera Stargazer of Ravenclaw
Alyssa Aries White of Gryffindor
Professor Shinseki, Head of Hufflepuff
If I forgot to mention you, please note me. I have a bad memory.
