CSS Snippets: Fantasy Header
:iconikue:
CSS { Snippets : Fantasy Header }
I've noticed a lot of users being simply amazed at the beautiful header for the recent Realm of Fantasy article posted by techgnotic. It really is a sight to behold, if you haven't already please go do so immediately and inform marioluevanos how amazing he is as a designer. Anyway, would you believe that the header is something anyone on dA could do with a few simple CSS tricks? It's true! There is only one element in the header you cannot accomplish with the current CSS rules provided by dA but that is hardly necessary and can easily be rectified with a tweak to the images themselves.
I thought since it was so popular I would take a moment to break it down for you all and show you just how it's done. Here goes…

Durst!!!
Wir wandern durch die schwüle Hitze,
So kommt es, dass ich furchtbar schwitze.
Das Wasser haben wir Halunken
Bereits vor Stunden ausgetrunken.
Nur eines treibt uns jetzt noch weiter,
Und lässt uns lächeln froh und heiter,
Denn bald am Ziel erwarten wir,
Mit Eis gekühlt ein frisches Bier.

Die Nixe
Es hatte die Nixe allein am Strand
von ihrem Glück geträumt.
Sie hatte dabei, äußerst riskant,
wiederholt die Flut versäumt.
Jetzt war sie ihrem Ende nah,
der schuppige Schwanz schon ganz trocken.
Er glänzte einmal so wunderbar
um Mann und Prinz zu verlocken.
Doch als sie sich dort in Qualen wand,
stieg plötzlich das Wasser wieder,
und mitten in den Fluten stand
Poseidon, sah auf sie nieder.
„Du kommst mit uns“, sprach er sodann,
die Stimme wohl gewaltig,
und neben ihm ein kleiner Mann,
das Antlitz rauh und faltig.
Klabautermann reicht ihr die Hand,
die Nixe schaut verwirrt.
Beide sind ihr nicht bekannt.
So zeigt sie sich pikiert:
„Ich weiß nicht, wer ihr beide seid,
ihr komischen Gestalten!
Und weiß mich von solch Hässlichkeit  
ganz sicher fernzuhalten.“
Poseidon lacht und Donner grollt.
Ein Sturm beginnt zu brausen.
"Prinzessin Nixe, wie Ihr wollt,
dann lasst die Chance hier sausen."
Und beide kehren ihr

Rasant!
Ja, all die Raser liebe ich
Sie arbeiten doch gut für mich.
Erst letzten Samstag in der Nacht
Ist Toby vor ’nen Baum gekracht.
Er ist noch mal davon gekommen
Stattdessen habe ich genommen,
Was seine Freundin ist gewesen
Und nun im Grabe kann verwesen.
Ja, all die Raser liebe ich
Sie arbeiten doch gut für mich.
Auch Holger, der ist ungelogen
Mit hundert durch den Ort geflogen.
Zwei Kinder hat er dort erlegt,
und keines hat es überlebt.
Die zarten Körper, jung und rein,
Zermatscht in Särgen, weiß und klein.
Ja, all die Raser liebe ich
Sie arbeiten doch gut für mich.
In dem Moment mit viel Elan
Ist Markus viel zu schnell gefahr'n
Mit Schmackes überschlägt er sich
Oh ja, das ist ein Fest für mich.
Der Schaltknüppel in seiner Stirn,
Püriert jetzt grad' sein ganzes Hirn.
Er kommt zu mir ganz ohne Not,
Ich grinse breit, ich bin der Tod.

Well, this is a motive that I see every so often and it is kind of hit or miss. This one hit. One great thing about this is the colours...

I make animations, create vector graphics, write German poems, I draw from time to time and I am trying out some typography. Oh, I also code some CSS when I'm bored, do that for free, too.

You can use most of my art for free because I published it under a Creative Commons license. Make sure you credit me by using my name (Ret Samys) and ideally link back to me. Check the bottom right of the deviation or the description for the actual license.
If you want to, drop me a line about what you have done with it.



Ihr könnt fast alles aus meiner Gallerie kostenlos benutzen, da ich die meisten Werke unter einer Creative-Commons-Lizenz veröffentlicht habe. Vergesst nicht, meinen Namen (Ret Samys) zu nennen, am allerbesten verlinkt ihr mich auch noch.
Wenn ihr wollt, könnt ihr mir gerne schreiben, was ihr damit angestellt habt.

This is something that has changed fast in the past year, it probably needs some more updating. If I had the time...

Life get's busy, no worries.  If DiFi stays around after the Eclipse site update, there's always time to update the docs.
Have a great day!

Duuuuude where you been? I've disappeared from dA for months but looking through my deviation stacks I don't see anything from you :ohnoes: What happened to all your cool sketches and animations? *shakes you by the shoulders*

I've disappeared from dA for months... a technical issue broke my routine, dA was suddenly just not part of where I went on the internet. I have something new in place and I hope it's fixed now.

As far as creating stuff is concerned, I have one or two very boring things coming up. And then, hopefully by next week, I want to get back doing actual OK stuff.
*shaken by how much you care*

Technical issue? What kind?

Mostly Firefox Quantum making most extentions obsolete. Turns out, relying on old scripts in an ever-changing internet has advantages as well as disadvantages.

Hehe. I just was surprised you'd care enough to go actively check your stack and then leave a comment on my profile. :la: I appreciate it!
