sometimes i've drawn things to capture the feeling of an entire album, but song badges seem like a really cool idea

i kinda dont like that mechanic because you can accidentally waste a forgetton of ammo by reloading when you don't realize that you're holding a tediore weapon
i think tediore was always my favorite because i found of way of conserving or generating ammo or something, so i agree with you, but it's been ages since i last played bl2 so i kind of forget what i did. though there is a point to only firing one bullet and reloading to throw: the damage of the throw scales with how much ammunition is left in the gun

also the Deliverance is awesome

what do you think of this? could I get better?
the N900 version of this card was the first wifi card anyone recommended me when i was looking for wifi connectivity on my desktop
i ended up finding a different solution to my problem that didn't involve buying the card but in researching other wifi cards i still think the rosewill cards were the best ones i had seen. a lot of people seem to agree with that because they're pretty popular cards
you can check the reviews on the AC1900 you linked and see some people are using it for win 10, so it should work

most of the suggestions i have are relatively minor and just from my own experiences of trying to create a professional online portfolio

i think your font choice detracts from the level of professionalism you're trying to achieve
architect's daughter and especially amatic SC are intentionally wavy, "silly" fonts that, to me, make it feel like the website i'm about to enter is a photographer taking portrait photos for an elementary school. just removing the CSS that has those fonts through inspect element seems to revert to futura pt, which isn't great, but is a little better.



i'd suggest a sans-serif font that's fairly wide. maybe montserrat, maybe raleway, maybe quicksand... idk, take a look around.

the front page is nice, i think an "enter site" button is fine. you're a photographer, so you want to put your best foot forward and have your work presented to a client straight away, and the background of this page is doing that. definitely put one of your best looking pictures here.

i would say you should get rid of your title being the first thing you see, or reduce it to "photographer" and put it in small text under your name or something. i'm assuming a link to this site will mostly fall into the hands of people who already know that you're doing photography, but i think a more blank entry page gives a viewer a larger incentive to enter and try to figure out what it is that you do. you also aren't immediately proclaiming yourself to be a "professional photographer," because even if you qualify as that, it's usually wise to avoid saying it until someone reaches your about me page. yknow, humility and all that

this is just a suggestion: since you're talking photos in several different "genres" (people, sports, animals, nature, city, etc.) you could turn your home page into several presentations of your work top to bottom that are just big links to other sections of the site. same thing as your other pages, basically. this also gives you an excuse to use parallax. here's what i'm talking about:



i wish i could link this site but it doesn't seem to exist anymore. also, i should note that if you did change your home page this way, you might actually look for a slightly different format for the other pages, since they look very much like this already.

on another note:



all six header buttons are usually one next to the other, but it doesn't take much page size changing to get buttons to sit on top of each other. it's not that bad, and after the page gets just a little narrower it turns into a hamburger menu which is all nice and good for mobile, but i've seen a fair bit of site design and this usually looks more like an accident than on purpose. idk what squarespace will let you change, but if you reduce the size of these buttons enough, you can avoid that stacking



again, just mentioning humility, get rid of "amazing." you can talk about your thoughts or motives for making a personal photo series, that's fine and i think it personalizes the site in a good way, but keep in mind that you're letting the person visiting your site decide whether your work is high quality or not

other than all that: i like the about page, i like how your work is presented in tabs. and i really like this photo in particular



good stuff

i know its kind of a stereotype but most of the fursuiter's i've seen are either a. loud and entitled or b. loveually hyperactive
i've definitely gotten wind of the stereotype that you're talking about, but it's a generalization and not a very accurate one

i'd guess the reason why you've seen them often is because being loud and obnoxious or obsessively loveual stands out among the rest. i've met a larger number of suiters who are on the quiet side and like attending cons in suits because it makes it easier to open up

sorry yeah i should clarify: celeste started as a pico8 project, but the team united and decided to create the more official version that i linked on steam.

the pico8 version of celeste is actually hidden inside of the modern celeste as a tribute to its "prototype," which is pretty cool.
