1771  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: how about my new banner on: November 21, 2006 03:47:19 PM
Your little animals are really cute! Cheesy  The pictures look a bit dark, though.  Check out this site for some photography tips.  I noticed that you are in China and I'm guessing that english is not your first language?  The wording and grammar on your shop announcement is a bit off.  Try this instead:

"Xmas count down...
I designed this series of bears and bunnies for the coming Xmas... buy one and get it's blanket and scarf for free."

Good luck with your holiday sales!

Oh my gosh, that's so cute!  Which book is the pattern from?  I totally want to make one!
1773  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / New homepage design on: November 21, 2006 01:09:31 PM
I've been working on a new site to sell my crafty wares.  So far I have made a home page mockup and I'm working on the navigation design, but I'd really like to get some feedback before I work with this design too much.  Keep in mind that this is just a jpg of the home page, not a functioning site yet.

Anyways, please let me know what you think.  You can even tell me that you hate it as long as you tell me why.  I really appreciate your feedback and I will take all comments into serious consideration.

So without further ado, the url: www.cinnamontealhandmade.com/page04.jpg

Here's a few specific questions that you can answer if they will help you critique it.
1. Do you think that it looks old or "granny-ish"?
2. What do you think about the fonts?
3. What do you think about the sketches?
4. What about colors?
5. How do you feel about the alignment of the images?
6. What general impression does it give you?  Does it feel amateur? Does it interest you?
7. If you were shopping/surfing online and you came across this page would it grab your attention?  In a good way?

Thanks, shydeana!  I can't wait to see another of your drawings.  You have made so much progress, you must have a lot of talent.

ps. I keep my brushes with the bristles up to keep them from getting bent out of shape.  Well... actually most of them are jumbled together in a drawer.  Roll Eyes  Oh well.

very cool!  I would love to see a close up of the detail on the bulb, if it's not too much trouble.  It looks so intricate!

Thanks missamorphosis & xveganettex! Smiley Too bad about the dimensions, though.  Looks like I'm going to have to tweak it for etsy.

I really hope that all the bugs get worked out soon.  In the mean time, I'm going to work on my own website.  I've been wanting to make one - this just gives me an excuse/reason to concentrate on that for a while.

hmmm...  I don't know how big you want to go on these gifts, but a quick, easy and not too expensive thing would be to make stationary with images from your art work.  Just scan or photograph some images and print them on card stock.  Fold into cards and include some appropriately sized envelopes.  Makes a good gift for distant, letter writing type relatives.

I am so frustrated!  I haven't been able to log in since the new version got put up.  In a way I'm glad to know that I'm not alone.  Anyways, I've been working on some design and here's my brand spankin' new banner.  What do you think?  It's also up on my blog.

Do you know what the dimensions are that the banner needs to fit?  Is this one too tall?

The face looks so good!!!! 

Don't be so hard on yourself.  Hands are really tough.  When I took figure drawing my teacher had us keep a sketchbook and we had to draw hands, feet, eyes, ears, noses and mouths every day.  We also had to do master studies - copy drawings of masters (Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, ect.).  It is really, really helpful.  Also, once upon a time, I found a book at the library, in the art section that had photos of models (ie. nudes) in various poses and with close ups of each part (hands, feet, shoulders, etc.)  It was great for doing studies of specific parts.

Hope this helps!
