Critique My Website
I've just uploaded my new website, the old one had some issues that were just to deep to fix so I started from scratch building this new one!

I must warn you, website afficiados, it's not nor is it meant to be an impressive looking site. I wanted it to show my work and look clean. Looking forward to hearing from you

It made me download cs_fawlty_towers and de_cemetery.
So it must be doing its job.


FPSBANANA could use less clutter though.
Took a while to spy the download link on their page.

So we take it as it is - but I mean, you could pay few bucks for someone to build you a professional/decent looking minimalistic site. It gives better picture of you and your work. Now your works are pretty decent, but the site isn't at the same level. It functions, it is clear, but it looks bit outdated.

Set the border to 0 for the images; unless you like the blue border around the images. Otherwise everything looks fine to me.

For future reference it is generally best to keep content and formatting separate so that when you want to re-vamp everything you don't have to mess around with your content and instead just tweak a style sheet to your liking.

I also appreciate that you did it on your own instead of relying on DreamWeaver or Front Page. Also the content is great.

Re: Critique My Website
I've been doing an update of my site, so I'll be asking for additional feedback soon when I upload the changes

I like a blue border around click-able images since there's less confusion. I did decide to remove the border on my tables since they were just to retro!

I'll also be adding another level called LZ 129 Hindenburg for The Ship and it's rather awesome, so stay tuned.

Also, fix the dead links, they give a bad impression too.

I've added LZ 129 Hindenburg and uploaded my video resume and demoreel.
Any feedback on them would be much appreciated!

To be sure you see the updated site, refresh any pages you've been to to make sure it gets re-cached

It is better, no more dead links and such. But you can make pretty decent site with minimal(almost) effort with CSS and (X)HTML + little bit of PHP. I think something along these lines could work for you(simplistic):

http://onni.jkl.fi/index.php

Just to give more fresh look, I do not mean you have to mimic everything 1:1, but somesort of fresh start would be good. It would give so much better picture of you as whole and your work, which is marvellous.

These little things might really make or break the deal for you getting a development studio.

I don't wan't to come off as too hard, but I think with few improvements the site could be so much better.

I'll consider it for the future, right now I think I am happy with the website and will focus on doing another level (For Team Fortress 2) and applying for a job in the mean time

What are you kidding me? No!

The official SDK isn't even out, there's features that don't even work yet and since I didn't pre-order because I like to buy the boxed version I don't know how it plays either.

I'm just thinking about it right now and doing some models that's all.

Yeah, just that "doing another level" - I interpreted that wrongly.

Functional. How about using some of the wallpaper as a background image?
