Wow, honestly, I love it - so, so gorgeous. heart I'm a big fan of that sort of design and the "collage" look, so I have nothing bad at all to say about it! ^^

I so miss seeing your profiles in the PD!

The collage is nice and the style is classic.

I'm not sure I like the black text on top (feels out of place).

Maybe you can play with the text style?

Double spacing at the bottom bothers me.

The abrupt white line at the very left of the profile is a bit noticeable.

Can't wait to see this one fully coded smile

@snuggle
thank you! then again just because it's a particular look doesn't mean there can't be lots of things wrong with it :3 it's good to criticize so people can improve even more : D

@antipolar
yeah my dad also pointed out the ugly header. I've changed that and removed the white space. The double spacing is just a representation of the comments section though, won't be there forever!

Much better!

Text fits better with the layout.

I love the addition of the moths.

Especially covering the woman, almost Monty Python-ish.

The colors are also much richer.

Can't find anything wrong this time.


          i wish you could spread
          vintage patterns under the cut outs~
          en yeah~, i wish it could be a bit grungy~

          im super glad that my idol is back~ ;D
          i praise u. thanks for sharing me the use of pen tool c:
          i got better collages than before~

          can you upload the other version to
          tinypic please, cant see the image~
          it is sorta blocked :c



          ooh, i can see the second wip now~
          i love the typo~ i wish it could be spread
          through out the whole~
          i love the addition of moth, but i feel that they are a bit sharpy~ they dont blend with the other mixed medias~

          i would love to be the first one to see the finish
          product!! ;D

done the graphics, now to start coding!
I added some textures, got rid of the little crappy bits in the collage that didn't quite work and added a load of decorative text :3
