New Layout: Saiyuki

Hey everyone,

Through some serious trial and error, I made my new layout for my journal here. I really wanted to learn how to do it since my muses were pushing me back into web design (which I haven't done in a few years).



What's next? I plan to print out the code, clean it up, go through more tutorials, and offer different (hopefully easy to use and customize) layout templates for my friends here. Hopefully there will be some interest but I still want to learn the in-and-outs of the LJ system first.

This site was done using S1 Style-Generator (Plus account) which has some limitations on the overrides from what I've read but I figure stuff like this will help with the Minekura site design. (Yeah, it's still in the works.)

P.S. Oh, and I still have more 3D Minekura characters in the works including Nii (wish he was done already) as well as Naruto and FMA.

Sankyuu! ^_^ Yeah, I got tired of it looking so plain but I really wanted to do something different.

Yes, I enjoyed "300". I didn't even look at my watch even one time during the movie which I usually do. LOL I hope you enjoy. We can discuss it later. I wanna know what you think about it after you see it.

Wow~! Love the layout. Though the heading could use some trimming round the edges...

I wish I could customize my own account...=_=;;;

Thankie. Yeah, I'm a bit perturbed about stuff like the extra black boxes but once I get a little more into it I hope to be able to fix it.

If you could customize your account, what would you want it to look like? I'm really trying to get to the point where I am making templates that most people can use with their own images.

*falls over and glomps you back while laughing hysterically* ^_^ Sankyuu.

Hai, my muses are moving around all over the place. They won't really work with me yet they are pretty demanding. It's ok though, I need the challenge. =^.^=

Really nice! I like what you did with the links on the side (placing the pictures on them). I'm not that good with HTML and CSS so I tend to stick with the S2 format. I don't know if you alread know this community or not but everything_lj has some great stuff on making layouts, the people are helpful and they tend to be able to solve any html probs.

And Naruto 3d models? *secretly wishes for Kabuto*

Thank you. ^_^

It was in part to you, my dear, that I checked out everything_lj as well as animeljlayouts and premade_ljs. I love your layout but I was curious on how much could a person do with the S1 option. sakura_dance has some REALLY nice anime layouts as well but there definitely isn't enough Saiyuki layouts.

*adds Kabuto to list*

Sweeeeeet....I love the little graphic added in the bottom corner with Hakkai toting the gun. It makes me laugh. Don't know why....it just does. :D

lol, I saw you post and wondered what was going on with your Minekura site. :D

Thankies! LOL I love how Hakkai is smiling with the gun in tote as well. As if he isn't dangerous enough without it!! ^_^ I think that pic being right there is actually my favorite part of the layout.

The Minekura site is still in the works, just much slower than I expected. I saw a Naruto site that I liked and I'm checking it out to see what info would be good to include in the Minekura one from there. I'm also working on trying to create a backend for any moderators. Hmm, me thinks I'll need some PHP Help (trying the tutorials are causing braindrain).

Thanks for befriending me. I love your journal!! So much info on my fav anime series!! Thank you for sharing with us and I think befanini for helping me find you. (She doesn't know she did it but she did.)

Hopefully, it won't take me too much longer to at least come close to mastering this LJ layout thing. Then, I would be more than happy to create a template for you as well. ^_^

Thank you. Don't be envious! I'm on a mission to offer Saiyuki LJ templates to all!! *stands up with hand raised and fanfare playing in the background* LOL

I would like to know what other's may want/not want in their layouts so I can create some new looks. I would love to know what you think and would be more than happy to make you one. I'm trying to make layouts where it wouldn't be too difficult for people to put in their own images and hopefully be easy to update.

pretty layout! Nice to see you! *glomp*

Really nicely done. I'm still wanting to learn how to do layouts, but right now I'm in hardcore icon mode XD. maybe once I do a dump, I'll get more into the layouts...*sigh*

*glomps back* Thank you and it's always a pleasure for me. *humbly bows*

Maybe we can teach each other some stuff. I really want to learn how to do nice icons and effects. At any rate, I hope to make things as clear as possible when I do start offering layouts. There is so much stuff, even with all the comms and tutorials out there, it was still confusing.

Anyhoo, ttfn. *oogles your youkai Hakkai icon* Mmmmm.... ^_^

Thank you.

*crosses fingers* I've been working on several pieces at once but I haven't been satisfied with any of them. There is one that is coming along and I hope to be finished with him this week.

*whispers* I'm making a 3D version of Hakkai's "Kill the Gods" pic. Got the pose done, working on the accessories. Don't tell anyone else okay? lol

...could you make me a smexy 3D of Kakashi and Iruka? *is depressed and needs one hell of a pick me up*

Mar. 29th, 2007 05:38 pm (UTC)
I'm soo sorry you are feeling down. *hug*

They are both in the works. I've started on Kakashi but I haven't been happy with how he looks yet maybe Iruka may be a better boy to work on right now. Well, I will try again asap for you. In the meantime, please try to feel better. *sends a load of sexy bishies to fulfill your innermost desires* ^_^
