Hi guys!

I used to be a member a while ago under the name of gsgfx. I haven't done any web/graphic designing for a little over a year now, but I want to get back into it. I'm working on a portfolio atm, and I have a design that I want to run by you guys. The image is 1000x800, so feel free to right click 'View Image' and take a look at it unscaled. It'll be situated in the top middle of the page. It'll be a single-page website with anchor links,

hhmm i am taking a serious look at this and the metal bg does not look half bad and i can not figure out what is behind the text but looks good. Now the sides of the text i looked at the dark sections and i find it nice work on the edges there(i can not think of word for the edge work there lol).

As a working progress it shows some talent so when your done, post up the finial work i would love to see it.

Nice work so far mate :)

Thanks for the response and kind words, appreciate it! I used a free stock image of painted canvas with yellowish and redish paint on it. I wanted to incorporated some real life texture along with rendered photoshop texture too (hence the metalish background lol). I'll definitely post a working and final demo on this thread.

it's a good start the text matches and the colors blend well. Let us know when the site is ready to check out.

I agree that the colors are blending well (and I don't think bringing "metal" together with anything would be easy for me ;)

Zealous, about that edge work, "grunge" comes to mind? I love working with grunge masks.

I can't really visualize how the website will look like based on your image but I can tell is a pretty dark theme.

Overall the colors combination are well-matched and blends in seamlessly together.

Do hope to see your finished work : )

I think that color combination that you have used isn't so attractive! There are too much gray and too litle other colors!
So gray and black font color doesn't look well and it is always hard to read!
Kind regards,
