Actually this will only be the first one about fonts and text. This one will cover the basics of working with fonts.CSS Tricks: Fonts and Text Basics4 months ago in Journal and Gallery Tutorials More Like This
I will start by talking a bit about web-safe fonts and the concept behind a fallback hierarchy. Further down you'll find a selection of properties that can be styled with examples and explanations.
So, let's go!
The standard web safe fonts
A font is defined as web safe when it is installen on a great number of user's computers. They are also called system fonts, and can vary depending on your PC. Fonts on a Mac OS are not necessarily the same as fonts on a Windows OS.
Here's is a little example: on the left side is an image, an image created in PS on the right side. If both sides look the same, or at least very similar, it means they a

Another tutorial for news articles and journals on dA!This one is meant to help you add structure to your news articles (and personal journals) and thus enhance the reading experience for your audience.
I have already written a tutorial on the topic of HTML Literature, but only showcased what is possible there. It is almost the same as :faq104:
This tutorial will try to explain why you should use additional HTML in your articles and how it helps improve their quality.
Also it turned out to be quite long, so skip to your liking.
For further reading please refer to CSS Tricks: Limiting .text width, which explains the necessity of limiting your text width.
Why is structure important?
Nobody likes reading a wall of text. If you look at an article and all you see is a grey blur,

HETALIA OC COMMISSIONS (Closed at the moment!)EDIT: So, my list seems to never end! XD I'm very flattered that so many people are interested in me drawing for them, but I really want more time to draw for myself too. So I'm bumping up the prices in order to steer a few people away. I'm so sorry!HETALIA OC COMMISSIONS (Closed at the moment!)1 year ago in Literature Templates More Like This
Those of you who have already paid have nothing to worry about. But anyone looking for a commission from this point on, please pay the new fees.
So... I've never really done this before, so I want to apologize in advance for anything unclear.
For some reason, I've just been hit with an urge to draw some Hetalia OCs! But since I only have one myself, I guess I should look for others to work with!
For an unofficial trading card - ex: http://fav.me/d5xppzs
I will draw your OC imitating the official Hetalia chibi style for the trading cards. Pretty text is included. The whole shebang for 6 points!
For a Beautiful World reference card - ex: http://fav.me/d5xkbev
Front view - 9 points
Let's code! Background PropertiesIntroductionLet's code! Background Properties7 months ago in Journal and Gallery Tutorials More Like This
Custom shapes and images are an integral part of any journal skin. They can include buttons, icons, header backgrounds, dividers, textures - sometimes the whole design is one big, sliced image artwork with a text area so one can rightly call it a journal skin. Other times the custom image usage is low or non-existent, and you wouldn't believe how coders make their skins rock anyway (or because). In this Let's code! I'm going to address the different background properties and their values.
