New FLs

It's been a while since there was an update on fanlistings. These past couple months, I've added new subjects onto Enamour as well as my review on the designs itself:

  1. BSSM - Chiba Mamoru - Anime: Characters
    After gathering multiple images, I narrowed it down to Takeuchi Naoko's art. There were cityscapes from the original image that I finally put that heal tool to good use on Photoshop to seamlessly create this design. I've included the flying rose petals to remind me of the alter ego, Tuxedo Kamen and also tried to keep the dark theme going to a minimum.
  2. BSSM - Chiba Mamoru & Tsukino Usagi - Anime: Relationships
    When you're in love, you fall into cloud nine. Hence, I added in some pretty clouds along with glass-like polygons to add some shades of pastel colors to the design. The color combination overall was perfect so that there isn't only one color that overkill the rest.
  3. FFVII - Cloud Strife & Aerith Gainsborough (Aeris) - Games: Relationships
    This design was inspired by Lene of Kuchiki! In the beginning, I couldn't get an idea of how I wanted the design to look like to describe their relationship and wasted days reworking over and over again. Then I remembered Lene's domain and motivated me all the way to finish this. I had fun combining the warm tones, floral and vintage look that I manage to pull this design about 2 days!
  4. Tottoko Hamutaro (Hamtaro) - Anime: Series
    When I came across this image, I knew I had to make it to a layout. This image is different than the rest. Normally, they're cartoon-ish, but this image is vector-like. After searching high and low, I finally came across an image of the ocean close to the original image of and seamlessly blended them altogether. The outcome of the design turned out perfect!
  5. Tokyo Ghoul - Anime: Series
    I enjoyed making this layout! The theme was intended to portray the dark anime. The shades of black and red nailed the overall design. In addition, I've changed out the navigation to a floating menu; something just a little different from my other previous designs.
  6. Final Fantasy series - Games
    This design was rather dreadful. It took several images (went from Dissidia to Brave Exvius to World of Final Fantasy just to find almost all main characters to be in one image) to find the right one and I found Tetsuya Nomura's drawings which I felt I could possibly make a layout of. By adding watercolor and making sure all the character's skin to pop, the layout turned out okay. Probably not my greatest, but this will do for now.

I must say that was a lot of fanlistings built in a few months. And I'm happy to have been approved by each and every one of them. Please visit them when you get the chance!

Fanlisting Stuff

Happy Friday the 13th! It's almost Halloween again, but no intentions for a new layout or theme to associate my collective domain. However, I have been working on these past few weeks on redesigning and adding in more codes for most of our fanlistings, mainly because the older ones were crying to me for a change. With some code templates Aelyn and I created, this gave us more design varieties for our fanlistings. So far, I've completed 50x50 codes, but I will slowly work on 75x50 and 100x50 later down the line. I'm currently finishing up a few fanlistings that I got approved for, so expect some upcoming updates on them!

Fanlistings aside, I've processed new members for my Pokemon clique. I'm so glad to see this site growing, especially with the rise of Neocities users. In addition, rules, CSS codes, and a few wordings on the index page were slightly adjusted. If you haven't joined the Pokemon clique yet, please do check it out!

So Far So Good

After weeks trying to find the best contact form that'll fit my needs without worrying spam (for now), I was able to get a new one up and working. Thanks Aelyn for helping me with this! Hopefully this will be here for a good while because the CAPTCHA on the old form apparently doesn't work with the new PHP 8. I've resorted to Google reCAPTCHA with this new code. I've also gotten tired of the old layout and decided I'll stick to a temporary layout integrated with Bootstrap! It looks so clean and I'm slowly liking this new CSS style.

Approved FLs!

Some month or two ago, I was approved to several of my favorite series to make a fanlisting for! Throughout this process, however, the last two subject listed below kept me busy, mainly because there were no inspiration or whatsoever to get the layout done. A lot of time was also wasted in doing and undoing things, so that after several hours I would have effectively traveled from square one to ten and back again. Personally, I think it was the submission deadline that gave me the push I needed. Nonetheless, please give these fanlistings and let me know what you think!

  1. Angel Sanctuary - Series
  2. Time Stranger Kyoko - Series
  3. Big O - Series

Disclosure Beta

Aelyn warned me that the FanUpdate script was already dying and wouldn't be updated in the future, and the PHP 8 upgrade that destroyed the function of the script was the final nail in the coffin... Therefore, Aelyn was generous enough to install her news script for me! In return, I designed a guestbook layout as my way of saying thank you. She went out of her way to help me despite how many areas of the network she needed to update/fix just so that they are working in par with PHP 8. Thank you again! I hope I won't have to change the script for a good while.
