Oops & Layout Dilemma  
I'm so sorry, I forgot to post birthday wishes to my lovely friend nalazhar yesterday! I hope you had a beautiful day surrounded by those who matter most to you. :D

Okay, I've got a little dilemma. I was recently approved to create a new fanlisting for one of my favorite actors ever, Richard Dean Anderson! I couldn't believe it when I got the approval and feel so honored to have gotten chosen for this. I worked on a layout most of yesterday and I just don't know if I like the way it came out. I'm so not creative and my graphics skills are below average. *facepalm* D: I was just wondering if I could ask my f-list to help me out. Could you just check out the site here and let me know what you think? I'm really tough on myself so maybe I'm overreacting, I'd just like to get some feedback. Thanks in advance (don't be too harsh)!
happy birthday to you

Your graphic skills are below average???? Yeah right. I don't think so. :) If anyone's graphic skills are below average, mine are. I think what you made looks awesome. But I know how you feel as I had the same trouble when I was trying to make the layout my Parent Trap fanlisting.

Aww, thanks so much April! I think your graphics skills are just fine too. <3

I like it!! I think it looks great!
I totally know what you mean about being tough on yourself. I tend to do that with layouts. I'm always asking my mom if she likes it or if she thinks it looks good.

Not that I think I am a photoshopping master or anything but, if you ever want or need some help with a layout, just give me a shout.

Congrats on the fanlisting BTW! I love getting approvals! I am still waiting to find out about a couple myself!

Thanks for your feedback, Lora and your offer! I just might take you up on it someday. ;D

I think the layout looks amazing! It's funny you should mention Richard, cuz my dad was watching Macgyver in the next room a few hours ago! :)

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. Lol, I can't believe your Dad was watching MacGyver, that's too funny. ^^

I have absolutely no idea who that guy is, but the layout is lovely! :o)
Kristin: Davy #2kristypadalecki on April 6th, 2009 05:49 pm (UTC)
Really? I'm glad you liked the layout anyway. =)

I tend to prefer layouts with cool and pastel colours myself. :o)

Hmm. Maybe if you use a whole picture of him and worked on the colouring? Or blended the other faces onto a similar coloured background? I think your main problem is having the various faces stick out.
Alisa: Vintage radiomessageinbottle on April 6th, 2009 02:39 pm (UTC)
I agree with this one. The coding is good and I love the bg and the colors. Only problem is that the faces kinda look "attached" if you know what I mean? It's not necessarily a bad thing if that's what you're going for.

I'm not sure what you mean exactly, I'm so bad with these things! I was trying to be "artistically creative". o.O

I know what you mean, I'm just not very creative with these kinds of things. *fail*
