Really nice! I've hand-made a Wordpress theme so I can appreciate your layout on a technical level for sure.

Looks nice I like the colors and how the tree flows to your name. However, there are a couple of issues with it. The first one is how the page looks like two different pages.
Continuity is broken by this and it is a bit jarring to go from happy sunny day to toleration
Black and Grey. The next issue is pretty versus function.

This is an issue a lot of illustrators have with their sites. They tend to make a site an art piece instead of something functional and easily navigable. In the above case the focus of the actual intent of the site, which is to showcase your work to the world, is secondary to how good the site looks. So your information, tell us about you is third to all of that, due to the font size. Also, having other artist on your site can navigate potential clients away from you and to them, regardless of what language they speak. The gallery is straight to the point, the art, which is a good thing.

All and all good job on the site, it passes validation and all.

haha yeah I agree with the losing viewers to other sites, but It was something that I want to preserve through personal site--which is what I consider this site to be still, I really don't want to switch over to the professional porfolio site format--making traditions that is being lost at a steady rate (though for good reason) over time.

I noticed that on other sites small biographical blurbs are normally not too blatant. especially with the fact that most of the top part of the home page is text-free, focusing on featuring my art, a larger font would make the blurb shocking. I will try to change that around to see if anything else works though

As for the discontinuity, I originally incorporated the black part along with the menu to create variety while making the choice not look arbitrary. the original site did only have a blog excerpt instead of a full entry so the home page and the black was supposed to be a lot shorter than what it is now. I will try other alternatives for the giant blank black space to make it take away from the design less.

Thank you for all the comments!

if you want to create a website, you will need to learn the code XD even if you can't write it out, being able to read it/understand it is pretty much necessary

Nicely done. Curious, did you code this yourself or are you using some software solutions and plugins?

Though if I had to nitpick, I'm honestly not a fan of where that message box is located. It throws off the balance of the site. I'm not sure where else you can put it, but putting something on the right can help balance the site a bit.

I will probably flip the email form around since a lot of people are bothered by it XD

the blog is wordpress, gallery overlay is slimbox, the blog entry on first page is a solution I found online, and I did the rest--the simple stuff-- myself (:
