    Yeah, that's real nice, simple and clear the way to be.

    what program are you using for it?

    It will be intreseting to see how it develops.
    good luck in doing it, and
    May the creative juices flow!

    Looks good so far, the loading time is fast too. I'm not sure about the red though it looks good and striking, looking at it too long might be hard on the eyes.

    Hi cartoonfox,
    It's got potential. Loads fast which is always a bonus, and the pixelfonts are nice and clean. It's going to be a nice shell for your work.

    Few points though (IMHO):

    1. The menu seems a little out of composition in that bottom left corner and there's too much leading for the nav to look like a cohesive whole.

    2. For me, the navigation doesn't stand out enough for the viewer to be able to differentiate it from the rest of the content. Maybe try a bold version of that bitmap font?

    3. I think the site name and 'Art by' tagline need to be brought out more. I'd personally pick out a non-pixel font that you like and make it larger than the other type.

    4. Maybe bring in another darker colour somewhere to create some contrast on the page. Possibly the site name and tagline

    Hope that helps! Good work.

    Might be worth at the beginning to work out the design and functionality on paper, with a few printouts of possible typefaces etc to guide you. Saves time in the long run and easier to see what compositions might work well quickly. I'm guessing you jumped straight into Flash MX?
    Throughout your life advance daily,
    becoming more skillful than yesterday,
    more skillful than today. This is never ending.

    hi there, thanks for the tips man.

    hmmm so you think the menu is in the wrong place? sorry, i'm not sure what you meen. but i agree about making cartoonfox and art by more bold, i'll have a mess around and see what i can come up with.
    and another colour is also a good idea. again i'll have a mew around tommorrow to see what i get ^-^

    yeah i just jumped sraight in with flash. i find it easier to change things around in flash than on paper, with flash you can see there and then what it looks like. on paper you have to sort of guess what it'll look like. but i'm just wierd ^-^


    thanks again, i'll have a crack at it tommorrow and post what i come up with.




    peace man

    I love the way the site opens after pressing the image, just a pimp idea. Loading times were speedy as hell, menu and content now more distinguishable... looks sweet my man. Now we need some content.

    Hey cartoonfox-
    The site's looking good so far. I used to be a webdesigner, (still am once in a while) and I like it when people don't go overboard with flash. Nice and simple works really well, especially since it's your work that's supposed to stand out. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Damn, I have to work on my website...

    k, another update

    finished all the sections this morning. i just have to finish off some of the content (including my art ^-^)

    http://www.cartoonfox.hostrocket.com...artoonfox.html

    and here is a shitty little flash drawing canvas i made
    http://www.cartoonfox.hostrocket.com...g%20board.html
    its nothing great. but i thought it'd be fun for my site. ... maybe
    its ok, kinda like a vector version of paint chat, except you have no idiots erasing the canvas and drawing stupid manga stuff ^-^
    anyway, try it out and lemme know what you think. it is hard to get used to it, but once you practice for a bit, its ok. just remember to draw slow ^-^

    here is somthing i maneged to do in 5 minutes. i'm sure you all out there can do better. if you try ^-^

    CartoonFox, that looks awesome!

    I love the fast loading times, the graphix and the overall design. the canvas thing is a cool/funny idea. Sometime later on in the future(2yrs.) I would want a website made.

    Just wondering how much would you charge for something like this?

    hey man, thanks ^-^

    hmmm, how much would i charge? .... hmm i dunno, i'd probably just charge by the hour. and it would depend on how much you can afford (i'm no pro so i cant afford to be picky ^-^)

    well, if you ever need one done, feel free to contact me. i'd be happy to make one for ya ^-^



    thanks again

    Now your page looks cool as hell! Heres something I did on your drawing board. Thats a pretty cool drawing board, if we could save the session, that will be quite nice. Also I prefer your title "cartoonfox" not cropped at the top, or at least not that much.

    shawnYe, amn thats cool. hopefully, if someone as cool as you uses it, then others will too ^-^
    was it slow for you? is it just on my crappy 6 year old Mac? ^-^


    yeah, i was thinking of having a save function, but i will have to look into it. as i dont know how it would be done (i still have a lot to learn about actionscript)


    thanks, i'm glad you like it. ^-^

    i've changed the URL to my main site url

    http://www.cartoonfox.hostrocket.com


    and i've added the links banners now, although the url links havent been added. just the images. (shawnYe, your there too ^-^ hope you dont mind)
