Update 11

synergy: (disappear)

site: In Revolution Network
collective web domain
version: 3.0

I am so happy with this layout. I know that it was two months in the making and that's a long time for such a little collective, but I put a lot of thought into every element, and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. This is exactly what I want my domain to look like. There's a fair amount of different script use going on in here, but hopefully it all integrates together well.

In exactly a week, in-revolution.net will be a year old. When I think about the fact that I used to change my domain's layouts twice a month, it feels kind of absurd to only be on v3 here. On the other hand, this is the 20th layout I've done this year (one of them I haven't been able to premiere yet, but it's in the wings), which means I am still making more than a layout a month. I'm content with that.

It didn't come out quite as much of a twin to the fanlistings collective as I had originally planned, but it is still Utena themed and as for the rest that's a sacrifice I'll gladly make.

  • in addition, I finally fixed the colorization issues Ampersand was having, and Fools for Love actually has a text-filled "about" page now.

    I am backdating a set of updates I did prior to a vacation and a certain amount of chaos in my workplace after my return. It's a little extensive, so I'll break it up into two parts!

    site: In Revolution Network
    collective web domain
    version: 2.0

    Dissatisfied with the clutter of my first domain layout (and the lack of sites to fill it with), I threw up this 'semi-hiatus' layout directly before leaving for France. The theme, appropriately, is the Art Nouveau work of Mucha. Actually, that self contained header is the reuse of a layout I never published-- my original idea for In Revolution 1.0. It's recycling!

    site: At The End of Obsession
    Naoe Nobutsuna & Oogi Takaya fanlisting
    version: 1.0

    Note to self: never apply for a fanlisting if you don't have the image resources to complete it. While I'm quite pleased with the finished layout, it was a PAIN to take low-quality screencaps and turn them into something meaningful. But actually, the cigarette scene is one of my favorites in the Mirage of Blaze anime, so it worked out.

    site: Together Against The Kids
    Kakei & Saiga fanlisting
    version: 1.0

    Ah Lawful Drug, one of my longest-held manga loves, and tied for my favorite of all CLAMP's works. I'm thrilled to have the fanlisting for one of the two main pairs in the series (and really, the canon one.) This layout is VERY simple but I'm not dissatisfied with it. I wasn't looking for this panel when I opened my LD books, but it's a perfect expression of the characters. I couldn't flip past it.

    site: Outlast
    Ryuu F. Kazuhiko fanlisting
    version: 1.0

    And here is my other favorite CLAMP series putting in an appearance. CLOVER has truly beautiful artwork and layouts, and I've tried to stay true to that simplicity in this website. This fanlisting actually has an information section, shock. And I'd like to add more in the future, maybe even make this a shrine. I think it's necessary to lay out the facts, because CLOVER as a series has so very little explained. And Kazuhiko, as the character that almost all the action pivots around, is the perfect starting place. Not that I don't love him for himself.

    UPDATE 01

    And away we go. This is my first time using this journal for its new intended purpose. (Yes, I am absolutely lazy enough to not want to make my own blog when I can use a service like inksome.) I'm still sort of feeling my way back towards web design and vanity site owning, so these are more... tentative forays than actual sites. Enjoyable, though!

    Two months ago I caved to the impulse to buy a new domain. After which I realized how ridiculously behind the times my web skills had fallen. But after a lot of reading up and messing around, I've come up with a collective site I can... work with for now, at least. A lot of the elements of this design are just me saying "ha! look what I couldn't do three years ago!" But I'm okay with that.

    site: In Revolution Network
    cellective web domain
    version: 1.0

    At the same time as I bought the domain, I put requests in for a couple of fanlistings. I used to pop sites like these out all the time, they're fun, they're easy, and they can turn into very nice little shrines with some extra work after the fact. I also wanted to finally master enthusiast. Little did I know that enth3 would make my task ridiculously easy. Anyway. I wanted to do something new, so I picked a series I didn't even know of when I was last making listings.

    site: Low Place Like Home
    Sleeping Forest fanlisting
    version: 1.0

    ...then I got nostalgic. And lucky. The first fanlisting I ever owned was for this series, though not for the same pair. I really don't like this layout though. The concept works for me but the execution just doesn't. I may try and tweak it later.

    site: Pay So Dearly
    Tatsumi/Tsuzuki fanlisting
    version: 1.0

    And of course, this journal. I had originally intended to just use this layout, which is a lovely premade journal layout I would have been perfectly happy with (I really love her work!) But some of the coding didn't translate properly from livejournal to inksome. And since the designer has said that if you're comfortable with revisions you can make them, I turned it into something new.

    site: Synergy@Inksome
    update journal
    version: 1.0

    This all still feels a little jury-rigged to me. But it'll do.
