Great look and feel.

Just a few more things could give it the professional boost it needs:

I feel like all those bars can't just end. Then need to extend all the way across the screen. I also recommend you use a pop-up window, or create a fill in gif that will extend those bars on the sides for screens of different resolutions. Maybe pop-up window would be a better idea.

Also, the logo "NetworkShadow" needs a better look. Before you come up with a logo, you can start with somthing simple. Try Arial, with little spacing between letters. Then just make it look like this:


or you can lowercase the N and S. You can try other fonts too.

Do you want to try a different color than that mossy green for highlights? Maybe a brighter green or a kind of blue? Maybe even an electrofying purple.

In addition, the picture of the waterfall I think would be better if it were horizontally flipped because then your logo will not be hard to see, rather it would be in the water mist.

Think about making that ninja guy glow an opaque white. Or maybe make the picture gradient mask out where the ninja is. Therefore, when a picture is selected, you wouldn't see that straight line boundary where the bottom of the picture ends, and it would give a more professional look.

Very cool, keep it up!

Thanks a lot for your support guys and especially yours
NEONecd999, I'm going to take all your comments on board.
I thought the same things myself but I'm going to get the scripting done first.

I've added a user controlled fade point but I'm not sure if it was there when I put this post up.

Thank's again every one :D

the fade^-point is up now, love it!
but how'd you do that? the fade?

Is it all scripted? or what?


04-17-2003, 10:18 AM
Glad you like the effect Robin.

Yes the fade point is scripted.

04-17-2003, 10:21 AM
correction: I don't like the effect.

I love it :D:D

so how 'd you do it then?
change the _alpha values according to to _x values?

because when I try to make a movement with easing I somehow l somehow always get the wrong value when I trace the _x.


04-18-2003, 03:42 PM
yes, how DID you write that fade point?
very cool.

Sorry guys I won't be giving those secrets away just yet but I've just added a couple of updates including fireballs on the logo, a contact form and an addition to the portfolio.

Hope you like them.

aah too bad...
I really love it!


I like the fireballs, certainly when you say they're scripted, but I don't think they're super... they're just a nice addition to a nice logo...

but again, nice scripting man!

found a little typo error: in thetext for trust IT you say:

the guys new exactly

the guys knew exactly


04-29-2003, 11:49 AM
Wow thank's for the typo linckx, love you loads!!

Re: fireballs.
The way you describe the fireballs is exactly how I wanted them to appear, just a nice little effect that adds to the logo.

Massive thanks again for the reviews and the typo!

héhé, no prob!

just do two things in the future:
- make a tutorial for that alpha thing when you decide you wanna share it
-keep on doing stuff like you're doing, your're doing great :D
