This is absolutely fantastic. The detail is incredible. I just have one question.... can I hire you for a personal website? I'm looking for someone who can do a sci-fi/steampunk kind of design & you are really amazingly good & have the skill set I'm looking for.
Looks to me like you've been doing some experimenting on this one.. some of the thick black lines almost look cartoonish but I can't remember ever seeing a cartoon this killer before.
It's got all your usual stuff like the insanely real depths, textures and that big badass round metallic logo thing is the centerpiece like a crown jewel..
I don't know if those lines on the inner part of the sidebars help with the perspective or if it would be better off without them, but overall I think it's another power house designs from the depths of hell, via your house.
Thanks alot bro, yeah it was a bit of an experiment i guess, im all out of ideas to be honest, and when i do templates now its just completely spontanious and if it looks good i keep it, if it looks shit i dont use it.
I dont plan things at all, i just start mucking around and then turn it into a template.
As for the black lines i agree, but i cant be assed to change them really, i think the side bits are quote good as it does help with perspective, but obviously they will come out when its coded.
