Well I like the layout alot! but im really not too sure on the colour scheme - specifically ists not easy to read the text. I think it would be good to have your picture in the banner also, that way you are likely to remember the site more! The more you can link the design to yourself and you interests the better! smile.gif

I would personally go for something very simple.

Like for instance: http://creepcolony.net/

Hey pavel, I do some 2d design/graphics art stuff (though I don't have much experience with websites, some but not much). If you want I might be able to do some images for you or something. I agree with mattacuk, the text is a bit hard to read. Also I have to say I'm not digging the background too much tongue.gif

I am always having troubles with the content part design. I like the way the header tuned out but i never know how to make the damn text part!


Ok i removed it from that link and will try to work some more on the text part. Will keep you updated! Thanks for replies!

Hey Pavel if you ever have problems with color try using this web page:

Colorblender

It builds a palette around a color you choose.

How about a movie clip of you with the guitar and you say "Are you ready" and then you play a killer riff? laugh.gif


Nah sorry, all I got was 404 not found :-)
Will check again later

Hey Pavel!

If you're not a master of web design you may want to look into a Content Management System like PostNuke which uses PHP.

Here are some examples:

www.sofakinggamers.com
www.predatorial-tendencies.com

You can download skins for free or design your own (which takes learning PHP, I've always just downloaded them)

This takes some time to learn to use PNphp and what not, but probably less than creating your own web from scratch. There is also an addon for forums called pnPHPbb2 which are really, really easy to add-on.

looks great, but in my opinion i think you should go for a "Technological" layout, idk if you have seen them, they have like metal borders with tubes, glass, lights and whatnot, i used to design stuff like these back when i was very interested in it.

But still, looks great Pavel, specially the font and effect of the title, great job man!

i used to do stuff like these, i would gladly make you a cool design, but unfortunately its been a long time since i use Photoshop, tried it a while ago but cant remember anything. So yea i guess you should stick to that design, simple but effective! wink.gif

EDIT: a friend of mine gave me a link to some "metal surface" tutorial so i checked it out and created a better version for my site. Now it looks just like it should i think!

I don't like all the rips and stuff in the metal, TBH. The metal looks good because it looks solid and strong, but when it has a bunch of rips in it like that, it doesn't look like solid metal but more like tin foil or paper tongue.gif But it's definitely looking better!

Also, I personally find the italics a little harder to read, but that could just be me. One thing about your bio page that needs changing is you (I think) want it to look pretty professional. Meaning you need to go back through and change those i's to I's and whatnot, but mostly it looks very good.
