New layout  
So I finally changed my layout (coding thanks to amavel_bel). This is number four in all the years I've had LJ. I got totally inspired by a challenge at ca_stillness and I made a header to match my contest icon.

Click for larger:

I am ridiculously proud. My husband looked at it and said 'oh, what comic is that from?' The base is from Dark Horse's "Long Night's Journey" but that isn't the text or order. I made the boxes myself and changed the text. I even added a wedding ring to Cordy's finger.

Base one
Base two
Base three
Base four

OMG! THANK YOU! That means so much coming from you because I know you are the number one comic fan on my flist. It makes me so ridiculously happy to hear you say that.

Aww, thank you so much! It's amazing how something as simple as making a header can make me feel so..."beam-y" LOL

There is nothing simple about making a header. Believe me I have tried my hand at arts without any luck whatsoever. :(

Great great job.

Okay, until I actually read your post I SERIOUSLY thought that banner was real. I was just about to go out and buy all the comics, lol!

Awesome job! :D

I can dream, I can dream. I can tell you that if I wrote the comics, they would be going a whole lot differently, that is for damn sure (and I'd prolly sell more copies. LOL)

Amazing new layout! ♥

I thought it was real there for a second...
great job of arranging the bases and text. And that was quite a nice little job there inserting a wedding ring on Cordy's finger. :D

The wedding ring was the easiest part out of all of that. LOL Luckily I found a great site on how to make your own comic book. It make things so much easier.

And thank you so much for the compliment.

Very cool. I totally thought it was real as well.

OMG! Did you see Stephen Fry's new photo? He's lost a TON of weight. I can link you if you haven't seen it yet. He is looking Fry/Laurie good.

That is soo awesome! I really need to get off my butt and start participating over at ca_stillness again...
Kellyxlivvielockex on March 21st, 2009 12:36 am (UTC)
YEAH YOU DO! Icontest are only fun when the best iconmakers participate. You really should get going! I miss your icons. And Nikki is temp running it now, she has some creative challenges.

You know I'm not a comic fan, but you did a great job taking bits and pieces and making it a cohesive story AND looking like a real comic. I wish I'd thought of it! :)

You did a great job. Although, I personally think the AI crew looks hilarious as comicbook characters. The shadows aren't all that flattering.
Kellyxlivvielockex on March 21st, 2009 12:37 am (UTC)
Some of the comics are better than others. I've noticed that it really depends on who is drawing them. Some comics are pretty good with the likeness, others...not so much.
Kellyxlivvielockex on March 21st, 2009 12:36 am (UTC)
You know if I was writing the comics, they would be going a whole lot better. And I would hire in some people who could draw the actors! And let me tell you, they'd be selling more copies! LOL

This is so made of awesome.

Well, I told you how much I love this, already. But, I had to come over and just say it again lmao

I love the header and how the layout colors mesh well. It really comes together. I'm jealous lol My layout is old and I need to upgrade soon.

Kellyxlivvielockex on March 21st, 2009 12:39 am (UTC)
Your layout is older than the discovery of fire! You really do need to change it. You made great headers so go for the gusto!

And I can't code layouts for shit. But I'm really good at finding ones to use. LOL

Cangel is pretty awesome.

Cangel is pretty awesome.

Yeah, I kinda think so too. Can you tell? LOL
