":La: invasion" journal skin by eXoHeartbeat ":La: invasion" journal skin by eXoHeartbeat

La invasion!

A humorous journal to bring a bit of a personality to your page!

This journal skin was made for ^ginkgografix's 2009 CSS calender project. I was placed as December 2nd. Journal skins were released every day in the run up to christmas!

While creating this skin animation was attempted but it was decided that it was too annoying so it was removed.

How to use

To use this journal skin all you have to do is click "Install to Journal" below the preview image. Then create a new journal and choose this skin in the skin selection screen. This is only a brief tutorial, feel free to note me for a more in-depth how to.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-01-28
For lovers of the :la: emote: ":La: invasion" journal skin by =eXoHeartbeat ( Featured by GaioumonBatou )
I quite like how the :la: emoticon is used here. It's very pixellated and works very true to the original thing. However, one thing I have to note is that the text of the journal body itself is too light and does not stand out well enough against the emoticon.

Maybe if you used a dark red colour, it would stand out a lot more and be a much more versatile journal skin, however it seems that the text currently blends in too easily and therefore the content of the journal lacks the impact that it needs to stand out.

(I am -1 words on this critique so I typed this little bit out to fill the quota)

This is a very refreshing and hilarious journal skin...sort of like a commentary in itself on the dA community! I'm attracted to this journal skin because of how simple it looks compared to many other skins that are beautiful but sometimes too embellished or elaborate to look really good on a profile page. It probably doesn't have much profound meaning, but it's quite pleasant. (And I'm installing it to my journal.)

As a tiny suggestion for improvement, would it be possible to have a slightly less pixelated version? I am well aware that the pixelated effect is part of the charm, but reducing it a little bit would give the :la: figure more form.
