    Yeah, I've been hammering away at a free style at that painfully slow pace I get stuck in when not doing a paid style and in no hurry. Basically, I want some feedback

    Most importantly...
    • What do you think of the blue gradient used on the category bar? Is it obscenely out of place, ugly, etc?
    • What do you think of the background? Toying with the idea of swapping it out for something else as the current one started out as a placeholder, just undecided as to what yet.
    • What do you think of the way I did the breadcrumb, and any idea what I should do with it instead
    • Am I overdoing on the shadows?
    • ...Anything else? o_o
    Note: HEAVILY WIP, lots of badwrong font colors, out of place colors, etc. It'll look far better in the final release, I promise. ;)

    ...But yeah, thoughts so far?

    I think there are too many blue styles. I think you should change the blue gradient to something else. dont ask me what I don't know.

    The background looks easy on the eyes and not bad. Keep it
    the breadcrumb is good as well
    Shadows dont work on IE right? So, keep them as well.

    I am LOVING it so far. I do agree with Nasr - to a point. IMO, it does need a blue gradient, but not that blue. A more muted blue would look better.
    But that's just my opinion.

    And he is right, we do need something besides blue!

    Thanks for the feedback :)
    Consider it done. I'll either throw on a semi-transparent gradient that'll let you define your own color using style properties or include several color-variations ;)

    They work on IE9, not on <9 though.

    Thanks, glad you guys don't hate every pixel of it to death. Feedback's much appreciated :)

    Anyone else?

    Oh heavens no! I am really loving the textured backgrounds, separation of posts, and the shadow making each section stand out. Absolutely!

    Agree here with Peggy's sentiments.
    These organic styles I really do like. A kind of back to basics approach, for me work well. :cool:

    Things have been slow; been busy with a couple of paid clients recently. Nearly done though, expect to be seeing more very soon :)

    Fine, fine. Three more teaser images, Expect the style to be up in a week at the very most. :p

    Notes:
    • Category bar gradient will be very easily customizeable color-wise; a guide will be provided. Same gradient is used in other places (such as nav bar).
    • BILLIONS of font colors have not yet been touched. If any text looks hard to read or out of place, that probably just means I didn't get around to it yet. Won't be like that in the release version.
