Pol, your work is amazing. And I'm excited to see all the comments and suggestions and trial runs!

Ask a simple question two days ago, and look what happens!!

Okay... this is my 1st try at this, so please be gentle :) The background is blah, I just can't figure out what to do with it...

Oh I like that one! It is kind of hard to read the website though (maybe because it is not at the "finished" size when I view it?). A more... tattered type ear might look better?

Moonflee,

You are a gentleman and a scholar! :) Now I have a new supply chain!! Thank you.

So many fonts so little time... :)


Krista,

I like it... For the background just set it to off white or pale yellow and maybe add a bit a texture. How about making Headhunter blood red so it set apart from the rest?

And about the Special X.Net... I was trying a new font I downloaded today. >hangs head in shame< It's called "A Theme For Murder" and it makes it a bit scratchy... Maybe If I increased the size between the letters?

The ear is too soft around the edges, you're right. I need to eliminate that soft, fuzzy edge.


My font addiction may be getting out of hand, is there a Guttenberg clinic for font addiction?

My addition to the collective gallery lacks the creativity that the rest of you have put forth. It's a first attempt, so it's sort of bland.

I left space in the upper left corner to allow for desktop icons.
