anything i should change?IMO no, it's terrific! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Basicly your site looks really good, thought always a few little things could be corrected; like text blending in images ("the ultimate Lara Croft fanart gallery" > LCFG shadows makes it a bit harder to see...). Rounded bold line could be a bit more smoothed (exactly where your logo is located). Overall looks great, I like the blue tones and (left-side) design. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

It looks very nice http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif but have in mind that geocities do not allow hotlinkings, so you won't be able to post (hotlink) an image.

niallglynane, if you mean the fonts, the round one is called "inkburrow", the square looking one is called "square721"?

apofiss, yes i agree. but i didnt really spend alot of time on those things u noticed. i havent decided yet if im gonna stick with that layout. it looks kinda cheap. but i like blue so im not sure yet. but ill correct these things if i stick with this style. thanks for the feedback http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

elen, elen, yea i know. i only use geocities temporary, i had it since some time back and the site that i tried to register at didnt work. so im looking for a site that have much space and traffic free.

thatnks for the comments everyone. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

its based on the "real lara" i did for my last wall.

TLR, i was gonna ask u if i could link, but i saw that u have dissabled the PM function so i asked joseph to ask u in the mod forum or something, but he said that u probably wouldnt mind if i linked to trchonicles and trforums, so i did. its not like im gonna write news and stuff on my site, so i link to that instead.

It look's so cool! very nice nomedo! so when is it fully oparational no bugs?

originaly posted by nomedo:
i know im not allowed to advertise other sites in the forum. I know that I'm not Tlr online or anything like that but you could sponser each other like making publicity in each other sites. That way more people could come to this site and more poeple could see the amazing nomedo's art.

15-10-05, 16:57
or possibly a quick link to Mona Sax's personalized art, all put together at http://www.gamedrain.com/mona.htm
or you could just steal the pics from there. either way i dont mind, I just think Mona has some neat and original ideas as well

about the site: spectacular! i love it, and i dont know how you do it Nomedo, great work, a few bugs i found, but overall, I'd check it out everyday if you update it that often. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

15-10-05, 18:20
thanks for your opinions.
im planing on using the site for pics that i make but also for others, like mona, to have their pics in the galleries.
but right now, when im only testing the layout of the site, i only added a few on my pics.

i dont know when the is will open for real. im lookin for free hosts, as geocities only aloow 15mb space and 3gb/month, which isnt much if im gonna have many, big pics.

i will probably stick with the hole concept i have now, but i will add more sections and probably change the top and left frame a bit...

if u guys see some more bugs, please tell me. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

ok a little update.
ive now got a host with 60mb space and unlimited bandwidth.
and ive also decided to make new frames. the blue onles look too cheap i think. but ill use the same mainframe. ill be able to make the new ones in a few days.

ive also made a second wallpaper. im in love with that face of lara now. but dont worry, ill be over that soon ;)

Beautiful picture Nomedo! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif Can't wait to see your site! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

new frames. is this better or worse?

one more thing. if u like the second leyout more, do u think i should smooth out the lines between the frames and mainpage? (blue -> white)

Very nice, nomedo! Thanks for posting it here! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Nice! Rounded (crystal) buttons looks better and metalic frame also, except the top side. Now everything looks clean so the artistic font somehow doesn't fit well (only my personal opinion, how I see it), except the top side (that art-font looks fine > as for the main title). The left side looks perfect! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif BUT actually (from the other side seing) it looks nice as it is now. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Wow, that page it's impressive http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif good work Nom.


17-10-05, 11:32
aopfiss, the "artistic font" u talk about, do u mean the very round and hand writing like font?
i like the left frame now, and it looks kinda mac'ish, but in the same time the blue color is kinda heavy, and doesnt really go with the inner frame's light colors. (?)
the top frame looks kinda boring now to me, i might add some things to it on the right side.

btw amlai, your avatar is great. when i saw the pic from where uve taken laras hand i though that her hand looked http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/censored.gif freakish. but in your avatar it looks beautiful http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
i guess its supposed to be like in ET?, but my first thought was nokia :rolleyes: lol

i guess its supposed to be like in ET?, but my first thought was nokia :rolleyes: lol In fact i choose the pic of "Adam's creation" by Miguel Angel. I was thinking to make an analogy of the creation by God's hand. sorry no ET :D

nomedo, the ET picture was also based on "Adam's creation" by Michelangelo.

18-10-05, 11:54
oh yea, i see it now. art its my best subject, but i recognice the painting now. i like ET more though, glowing fingers are so cool :rolleyes:

anyway, it was a great idea for the avatar and laras hand fit perfectly. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
