This journal design is a custom work for =mirz-alt/`Mirz123. She will be starting an article, which I may not have leave to speak of here and give spoilers. But I will say this, it is a feature journal with extra divs that can be combined for different effects.

It is best viewed for wider monitor sizes, however, should look fairly good at most resolutions.

The background is a composition of 2 custom paintings created for this skin. Both are unlike any artwork I had previously done, combining an olde map with a star map. I decided the best way to blend the two would be to morph the map into a globe, which could have the star map come off the horizon. As the journal content is added, more of the scene is revealed.

Originally, =mirz-alt was going to commission me for my journal + gallery combo special, however she decided on an advanced feature skin instead.

I have already posted the star map to my gallery and will be posting the olde world map and the composition soon. Every piece of this was created with my own resources, from brushes to styles and patterns. By her leave, I may release a brush and resources. Though not likely the brushes from the map, because they were really not so awesome and just roughly drawn. I may remake them as a better brush set. But as they are would not do.

Thank you so much!  It was a very experimental project for me, I enjoyed working on it very much.  :D  I'm glad Mirz uses this for her Literary Compass series.

Well, if you ever have critiques, I would gladly accept them. most of my works I allow critique on, I want to improve at everything. The only times I don't are if it is something really personal that I do not want anything on. I usually even go so far as to turn off comments.

I love how you always try to find new ways to highlight different aspects of a journal. Looks great, even though i am sure that loading times will kill me :D

There's only 2 images, so it should not be bad. and both were saved for web! :slow: The rest of the gradient effects is all text and box-shadow and rgba opacity.

:D Thank you!!! I couldn't wait for her to submit it, I'm too excited about it. Still need to write up the descriptions of the counterparts. They will soon be following. I put a silly amount of detail into the bg ;P

Well, my bf thought it was silly. But I am of the theory that you can see all the work put into something, even if the details end up being very small and ultimately unnoticed. And he just finished an altered journal which he glued and drilled and riveted and painted and.... you get the picture! So he has no room to speak of silly details ;D
