My once very blinding red little collective site, Vermillion Works, has a new look...and I must say it turned out pretty darn good! A lot of it was a happy accident, like that image overlapping with a cell in the middle, don't know how I managed that, but it looks kinda cool!
I did use a blank layout from a free css template site, but don't let that fool you, I butchered the hell out of the design so it's mostly mine. I just have a hard time starting a layout from scratch.
I admit it's still something of a placeholder design though. Eventually I'd like to have more sections, turn the top image into a slideshow of art (if possible) and of course I'd like to have more than one comic listed as actually updating. I might even give Vampire Phantasm it's own "old" section eventually...not that I mind people looking at it, I just want to draw more attention to my newer stuff.
I remember making up the "Vermillion Works" name, just trying to put any interesting word with some sort of studio sounding thing like "works". Eventually I grew to kind of hate the domain name I chose but never changed it because of the hassle of redirection...but now I've come to be resigned to it. Not only is it rather nostalgic for me but at least it's rather unique. It's vermillion...and it works.
