Past Layouts - 2005

This is the page where you can see what this site used to look like, and also how it's grown over the years.

Now, I must admit that I haven't been very good at keeping track of my past layouts. I didn't take a screenshot of my past layouts while they were being used. So I've had to sort through my old files and make thumbnails of those layouts, I'm hoping I've put them in the correct order. I'm not posting layouts that I used before I made the site public. Oh well, here we go. ^_^

[2006 - 2005 - 2004 - 2003]

Layouts are sorted from earliest to latest.

This is the second set of skins I used on the site. They feature Shinshi Doumei Cross and Fullmoon wo Sagashite, images are from Shinshi Doumei Cross.tk. Format for all of them were tables and css, and the site was coded in php as usual.

I didn't screencap the last two skins while they were in use, hence why the thumbnails for them are kinda bare.


This is a tables and css layout that features Edward Elric with his brother Alphonse in the background from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga. As usual, the site is coded in html, css, and php.

After a long string of girly layouts, I finally made something that isn't. The image is from the first Fullmetal Alchemist manga artbook, the font is Last Words, and brushes are from Insomniac Brushes. I used quite a few layers, overlays, and blending effects.

Here's a copy of the base image I used, and here's a png for the cut out of Ed I used in the layout.


This is a tables and css layout that features Riiko Izawa from Zettai Kareshi by Watase Yuu. The image used in the layout is from Shoujo Magic. The background is composed of some abstract art I made with some filters and also some brushes from The Magic Box.

For the longest time I've been in a rut with designing a layout that branches out from the simple top header, content, and navigation. I think this one incorporates the content with the layout a bit more...I hope. I kinda copied myself on this layout though, as it's quite similiar to the layouts I've been using as thedbarchives.com.

As usual, here's a png of the image used in the layout. ;)


This is a tables and css layout that features Edward Elric from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga (chapter 43), and is a bit of a contradiction.

The colors are all bright and cheerful, but the image is sad. I'll say he's not crying, but came to a terrible revelation and is being rained on (can't say what's going on exactly, it's a major spoiler). The layout uses brushes from The Magic Box and a texture from Hybrid Genesis. It's yet another layout with the character facing horizontally.


This is a tables and css layout that features Takiko and Rimudo from the Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden manga by Watase Yuu.

This is the second Watase Yuu series that I've used on the site, the previous one was for Zettai Kareshi. I really love Watase's work, they're quite good. All of them from Ayashi no Ceres, Imadoki!, Appare Jipangu!, Alice 19th, and more. It's quite obvious that Watase's style has evolved over the years.

Used on the layout are some brushes from the The Magic Box and a scan from Shoujo Magic, plus a bunch of filters and overlays.

As usual, here's a copy of the source image. ^_^


This is a tables and css layout that features Riiko and Night from the Zettai Kareshi manga by Watase Yuu.

The image used on the layout is from Shoujo Magic. The background consists of some brushes from The Magic Box, and a flower png from Aethereality.

Orginally I had done the border in a golden yellow, but when I looked at it next to the content, it was blinding. I don't really like the way the gray looks, but it works better than the yellow.

Here's a copy of the source image.


This is a set of D.Gray-man skins used on the site during the Fall of 2005. They all had a checkered pattern theme and were relatively similiar. All were tables and css formatted. Some images used were from Yanime.com and Timcanpi.net, no brushes or textures were used.


This is a tables and css layout that featues Lucia from the Girl Queen manhwa. Image used in the layout is from HMR.


This is a tables and css layout that featues Aoyagi Ritsuka from the Loveless manga. This would have to be the first layout I've done for a shounen-ai series, but this would also have to be the first shounen-ai series that I really like. Although it's a bit light on the ai part, it has a plot!

Image used in the layout was scanned by kiradyn_rhiode off of Raburesu (you have to be a member to see them). Texture used is from Textura, and brushes are from The Magic Box.
