New skin!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 8, 2012, 7:47 PM



Just designed a new skin for myself because I was getting tired of how ugly and hard to read my old one was. Still trying to work out the kinks in this current one, so this will probably change a bit in the future.

If anyone has any advice on how to get the journal title to be in line with the bottom of the hat up there, please let me know! Many, many thanks to radioactiveshake for helping me get my stuff in line! :D





Here's some Lorem Ipsum to fill up space and whatnot.

Yeah, I don't know how to fix that using only code so I think I'm just going to have to rework the entire thing until it works-- or at least prevent it from making the text go offscreen.

Oh, no no, the text doesn't go offscreen, it's just that for it that I have 1024 resolution, I cannot see the whole drawing, that's it :/

Well the text goes offscreen for me, which is why I'm trying to fix it. OTL; There's not much I can do about the drawing though, sorry D:

Oh, I just noticed something. When looking at the journal from your profile page, a good chunk of the right side gets cut off. ;3; I wish I could suggest a way to fix it, but I don't know CSS well enough at the moment. D:

On a side note, I am in the process of drawing something AWESOME, and I'm liking how it's turning out so far. 8D

Yee~ Well, some of the drawings are starting to get a bit outdated, idk. XD;; So maybe I'll just redo those sometime.
I just gotta brush up on CSS, lol. ^^;

Well done. I really like the colours you used, and I'm a huge fan of that header illustration. :XD:

Hmm. Applying a padding on top of h2 should do it. I suppose it's around 230-235px?
In .journalbox h2, add padding-top:235px;

If you want to align the title and date to the right, add text-align:right; in .journalbox .journaltop.

Thanks! Though I think I might have to tweak some things; some bits appear to be too big for practical use. :S

The skin is in good portions, it's only the header that bothers me, looks a bit big. Oh and it's good you got the title aligned with the skull, looks much better. c:

I was actually referring to the horizontal width of the journal (which I fixed a little), but yeah, I see what you mean. I'll try and see if I can reduce the vertical proportions a little better, or at least find a better way to fill all that negative space. Thanks for pointing it out! :D

It's quite a bit to wrap your head around, that's for sure xD I just started making skins by modifying a template I found here: [link]

Thanks!
