Outsyder Gaming Gets a New Look

It has been quite some time since I updated the style and feel of Outsyder Gaming. The header graphic with the Warhammer 40K figures has been at the top of this page for years now. However, ever since I downloaded Daz 3D and started toying around with rendering, I've been itching to try something new with the site's look and feel.

What you're seeing now is what I've been working on this evening. I debated using characters from my Bastion novel, but with the book cover displayed so prominently in the sidebar, I figured that would be overkill. Instead, I opted for newer characters, one of which uses the dark elf model that just went on sale at www.Daz3d.com yesterday. What can I say? I just can't resist a good excuse to use a drow in my digital art.

While there are still a few kinks to work out with the overlapping images, I still think this is an upgrade to the previous formatting.

Thoughts? Suggestions?


Update: As it turns out, the new look was cool in concept, but not necessarily execution. Here's how it looked for a couple of days, but I just couldn't get everything to line up correctly.
