Hello. Me and a friend did this for free for an artist I know. Let me know what you think. It's optimised for 800x600.

cheers

Hi!

:thumbsup: I like it. The paintings too. Especially the least series which I gather is the latest. It shows. They are very suggestive.

Nothing much to say about the site. It's clean and simple, lets the paintings speak. Nice. Oh, one thing! The right-click script. It fools no one so it doesn't fill a purpose. It's just annoying. I would lose it. :)

Nice, simple design, maybe a bit "grey", although that results in minimal distraction from the art work, so probably rightly so.
A layout this straight-forward could have easily been done without tables... ;)

By the way: "White paintings" - "Painting tools": an electric guitar?!! :confused: Interesting choice of brush... :D

Black backgrounds can look good, if used right cg9com.


Oh and the right click thing, what about left handed people who use the right mouse button to click?


I like the paintings, nice one.


:thumbsup:

Thank you all for your comments....

Any other ideas what I could use instead of a black background??
White just didn't look right.

Also... Is there another way to protect people from saving his artwork to their PC's besides the annoying right click script?


thanks

cool site, doesnt take the attention away from the art, i know that was the first thing i looked at as it loaded up, has everyone noticed how the content of pages nowadays is being contained in one squar or rectangle in the middle of the page with only that part ever changing. i like it and use it my self when i design as site, well done lad. just wish i had something interesting like that to put on my sites!!! hAsAaKi

there is no need to click inside the image....left or righthanded.

couldn't get the same script to work on the index page though, thats why there is that annoying full-page no-right-click. I think i'll take your advice and remove that....

thanks...

blacks not bad, personal preference thats all, black bg's tend to steer me away.
