Nightlyre's Realm (Website Design)
The two designs in the screenshots above were possibilites for how the redesign would end up looking. The first screenshot was for a site-wide navigation, with vines curling around the top of the page. It would work at a minimum screen resolution of 800 by 600, but would scale up to larger resolutions easily. I kept the same background which has been on my site for ages.
The second screenshot would've been for a redesign of the main page only. It scaled not only horizontally but vertically, and was a precursor to how I ended up redesigning my site. I let the idea for this one go though, as it was still based around tables, didn't work entirely as I would've liked at a screen resolution smaller than 1024 by 768, and could easily be too dark depending on how viewers' monitors were set up. Even though the graphics were optimized as best as I could make them, it still would've been a heavy page to load for those visitors still on dial-up. I also wanted to branch off from the violet look my site has had for ages. I was still quite pleased with the design, though!
