I’ve been playing around with the theme so it doesn’t look so much like the original Sea Beast theme. I love the way this is coded, but I wanted to have my own images and some different colors. There was too much grey and orange for me. I wanted to bring out the blue, and add some unexpected colors here and there. Also, I noticed that my blogroll carnival was hard to read. There wasn’t enough contrast.
The latest playing-around session (what I’ll do to avoid cleaning the kitchen floor) resulted in a new sidebar. I’m not a graphic artist, and I’ve noticed that I can’t seem to get the really crisp images I see elsewhere on the net. I should probably be using Illustrator instead of Photoshop. Still, I like this, at least for now.
Here’s what it looked like before, and after.
I also added gravatar display for the comments. If you don’t have a gravatar, it displays my new nifty default image.
