Blue Eternity v1.0 by renachan Blue Eternity v1.0 by renachan
My very first design for my personal website and I'm pretty satisfied with the layout and design (Better than my first one anyway :dead: ). But it kinda makes the site look like as if it's a Spiral website :O_o: (It's what I think anyway) Anyways, the template is done up with Adobe Photoshop 6.0 (I don't like to use Fireworks to do this type of site designs, I just don't like Fireworks anyhow, besides, I can manipulate/redraw/touch-up images way better with Photoshop :P ), pictures used are some Spiral Pics I have lying around on the computer. Some of the fonts used is actually some of the fonts I use for Manga Editing, then those buttons were actually made with the line tool and applying the bevel and emboss filter to the layer. I used a lot of Guides and the Ruler to get the dimensions right, plus even more line tool XD I also used the Gradient Overlay Filter to apply gradient to some of the multiple color lines you see there. As for the "His Destiny is on the Spiral" part, I had to make it on a seperate image, and paste it back there. It was the only way I could think of in order to get that that effect you see there :dead: The coding of the site is done with notepad (Yes. Pure hand-coded HTML :) )

The pictures are copyright to Eita Mizuno and the Site Design is copyright to me :)

Pure HTML coding is fun. But it takes longer to do up. But pure HTML coding is soooooooo much better. You can indent the code the way you want to, so that it would be easy to edit in the future. And you don't even need anything special to read HTML. Just a simple notepad program would do :) Web page authoring tools sometimes mess up the code and even put in tags and attributes that are not needed (Think Frontpage). But if you ever want to use image map for linking, then it's better for you to use a web page authoring tool to help. Absolute Positioning is hard :dead:

La-MIA: BTW, I still don't know why your site looks funny on my computer.
