A Feature

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 11, 2012, 1:43 AM


Update: Spent most of the morning redesigning my journal skin, uh oh it's middle of the afternoon already, I seriously need to go to bed earlier. Anyway I think this is going to be a lot easier to use than my old one. Please let me know what you think. More importantly check out some of the amazing art from TwilitesMuse

Decided to swap out my journal skin that I've been using for the last three years. I liked the old one ok, it was just starting to do some weird things. The whole journal skin thing is just kind of weird to me, seems a lot more complex than it should be. And finding a new one, sheesh, you would think I could just design one from scratch seeing as what I do for a profession. However I prefer to do fun stuff on my personal time :nod: So you can see I chose to go with something fairly simple, at least for awhile. Does this font size look ok, seems a little small to me. Anyway onto the fun stuff :D

I recently discovered a deviant who really does some awesome work. Another thing she does which I think is very cool, is that a large portion of the art she posts she does so as stock that other artists may freely use for their own work. I know there are lot of people on dA who do that, still it's a very cool thing from my point of view.

Without further explanation, please enjoy some beautiful art from TwilitesMuse

So this was when my incredibly wonderful face started to appear on your journal! :laughing: I was browsing something very quickly around dA and I stopped like "what?!? I saw my avatar somewhere!!"
So, I like this skin better. It's simpler. I've already liked black better, though... but I like it, it's very simple. And, obviously, the ending could never miss. C'mon, it's Mike doing it. ;P

Well thank you so much. I have been so inactive on dA lately because of school, but I think this is going to be my last semester for awhile so hopefully I'll get back to updating my journal more often :D

I'm really into the new skin :) You do a lot of features it seems, so this simple skin is really good in that it takes nothing away from the art you are featuring. But, it remains interesting because of the neat texture you used. I think it is a great choice :D

Thank you so much! I used to do a lot more features, been kind of slacking lately, but maybe this will help get me back on track. You would have lyao if you saw what I had to go through to post with my old skin. Now I'm happy, I have it set up so that my links and my very best friends are all listed there every time automatically :dance:

How have you been doing?, been missing ya :nod:

your quite welcome :D I'm glad you made things easier on yourself! It definitely looks really great!
I've been going through some crazy stuff recently. Boy drama has been spinning me in circles, but now I am calming down and figuring things out for myself. Feels sort of nice being single :P I am putting together my portfolios and I think they are looking pretty good! How have you been doing guy? You been happy? I've bee missing you too, sorry I haven't been around recently!

Ah man, relationship issues are the worst. :hug: Sorry about that but sounds like you are moving in a good direction. I've been putting in a lot of hours at work, been kind of stressful, but we got the project done without too many issues. I'm taking an extra long weekend coming up, so that will be good :D Starting to get more into the flow with school, I might actually be able to do this stuff after all :lol:

No worries, life happens for us all, just wanted you to know you were missed.

thanks man :hug: I think things are getting better, he keeps trying to do really sweat things for me to get me back and show me he appreciates me, which I think might be working :P
ooh, its really good that you are taking that long weekend. It sounds like you definitely need some real "you" time. You always sound so busy, make sure you take a day on your weekend to unwind and cool down before like scoops you back up again! It's awesome that you feel so capable though, it sounds like you really know how to balance thing.
I missed you too :heart:

:hug: You're welcome. He should be treating you like a Goddess, maybe he just needed a little training ;) Happy things are getting better!

Lets just say that I do not understand what it is like to be bored lol I like to work hard and I like to play hard. A little break though without too much pressure will be a good thing. Going to be taking a vacation to Florida around late May or June, I'm so looking forward to that! My brother and I go every year.

Wow that sounds like loads of fun! I've never been to Florida, what is it like?

Florida is like the total opposite of California. The ocean water is warm so you can actually swim in it without freezing your ass off. It rains and they have thunderstorms in the summer time, but it only rains for like 20 minutes at a time. The people are totally friendly there. And the entire state is totally flat, the highest mountain in the state is Space Mountain at Disney World lol And being a being a red blooded male I appreciate the fact there are beautiful women everywhere lol

Sometimes simple skins are the best. I've been looking at redoing mine, but DA keeps changing how to access things or find things that it's almost too much of a pain to bother with it lol.

Great feature too!

Way back when I set up my original one, I had so much trouble getting it all to work the way that I wanted, and I earn my living as a web developer lol Every time I posted I'd end up having to write a bunch of HTML for it. So this morning I started out just making a couple of changes, and then all of a sudden something clicked and it all made sense. So about two and a half hours later, I finally got something I'm happy with :D

Thank you!

I like you new skin much better than the old one. I had such a hard time reading it, the font was so small and the color was hard on my eyes. I would usually highlight all the words in order to read them. This is much easier on my poor old tired eyes!!

Thank you!The old skin was a little more appropriate when I was doing all vampire art all the time, and it was a total pain. Used to take me about ten minutes to set up every time I wanted to do an entry. Made a few more changes and increased the font size some, so hopefully a little easier on your eyes and mine lol

Thanks you for the feature! I hope deviant artist find it inspiring and I see lots a new work from others! The fonts on little small but I was able to read it fine without increasing the font size. Thanks again for the feature:)

You're very welcome! I hope others find some inspiration there as well. I knew you did some great work, but last night when I grouped those images together, I realized just how extraordinary your art is, absolutely stunning!

Increased the font size a little and few more changes. Thanks for the feedback on that :D
