had to do tones this morning >< - finally had a day to myself yesterday, (do to sinus infection ;^^) but my brain worked, so I used it to get a Devil's Cake website 0.0 together.
THAT can be found here: http://www.freewebs.com/angichan/ and... I'll figure out how to get it on the toolbar here ><!!
it's just basic setup for now, but a foundation to build on. and I'm getting the t-shirt ideas together to get thumbnailed for you to vote on, so I'll post those when they are ready.
I do know someone who can make phone charms, so I'll figure a best way to perform that transaction and get you guys going<333
lemme know opinions comments etc. ><!!

graphic designer time. XD - So, love the colors, but I dunno if you want my opinion or not, but some little changes here and there would make the website all the more beautiful. Starting with the fonts, using the typical blocky fonts, does it really represent your story when it is such a complex and interesting creation? Thus, I suggest a more curvy font, which can be found at dafont.com
Now onto the different pages. On the home page, why not write the description of the comic instead of putting it on a separate page? And centering everything will create a flow, or putting it a specific align, at the least. For the characters page, also, aligning and putting everything in the center creates flow, and of course, pretty fonts. XD (ariele obviously has an obsession with fonts /shot) Hm, why not also put their ages and other little tidbits? XD Fanart? Lovely, but I don't understand why the gallery is separated from the actual thing and not put into one page? Also, aligning the photo gallery text, like everything else. Store? Perfect, 'cept of course, like I always say, go crazy with fonts. XD I don't understand the strawberry comics link, but should it have its own page or should it go into the links page? And.... overall, I love you, and this comic and ariele is done with her graphic desginer mode. XD -dies-
PS. Just a question, is the layout premade or designed by you?

- Hey as long as the website works and I don't have to go through a maze to get to it I think it's great!

ariele- - thank you so much! That really helps!
The site design is from a template they had already, if I make nuff monies than I could pay for the domain and make a custom page on my dreamweaver. but for now...
I CAN change the font to something more appropriate and put the story descript on the main page , etc. etc. so i'll get around to that.
as for centering...for some reason they won't lemme touch the Text in the banner, or the navigation...so I can't center them ><!!
but i appreciate the critique! it is very helpful! *hugs*
and I'll make the changes when i getta chance here >< *runs off to tackle work load*

once again... back. - Dunno if I should write this comment on the new page or not. Either way, I'll repost it both here and there...
SO! Freewebs is being funky? Like usual... -sigh- I could fiddle with it if you want, cause I have a premade layout on their as well showcasing my photography. Then again, I can try and create a coding for you (but I haven't done that in years). XD

- Uh, Ariele... Fonts aren't everything. And I understand that you love them, because so do I! In graphic design, of course, that's great. I love playing with fonts in my images where there's text. But installing CUSTOM fonts in a WEBSITE, plus choosing the right font for a WEBSITE, isn't the same as choosing one for a book's cover or a poster. >.> So no, I wouldn't suggest going crazy with fonts - not on a website, without a good reason. Also, that thing about centering everything... I still don't get how that's going to change things. I didn't see anything wrong with how the text was placed... unless it was changed already? As for the Strawberry Comics link where it is, it does make sense for it to be there, simply because Devil's Cake is being published by SC; and that explains a lot, don't you thin k? :)
You shouldn't demand too much of someone who's using a pre-made template, either.
