That turned out great, and for free. One thing that bugged me was, the sub header links inside the blue header box. When you roll over them they highlight with this gray box that covers the other link names. It happens in mozilla and I.E.

Anywho, good job man.

Heh, I've seen better portfolio sites, but I guess for 100% free you can't complain.

I'd really think about making your own (or getting someone to make you one) as you'll have much more control over the content and the presentation of the content.

Also having smallish images that are links, I find I keep clicking on them to get bigger images, only to be directed to Photobucket's website. Argh :x

The header links are messed up, too. They are crammed together oddly and they obscure each other.

Content's good, though ;)

You've got too many top level pages at the moment. What you need to do is organise them better. Something like Portfolio > 3D art > project X, where 3D art is a sub page of Portfolio and project X is a subpage of 3D art. Have a look at my site, to see what I mean: http://www.ojko.com as i'm using wordpress too.

Not neccesarily. You want people to see your work as quickly and as easily as possible.

Have a goosey at this article by Jon Jones about how to design your portfolio (http://www.thejonjones.com/2005/10/07/your-portfolio-repels-jobs/). He's got some good points.

the content of your site is amazing m8, however the presentation needs a little improvement

Thats some nice stuff, your psp spec models look great. You have good modeling and texturing skills. I love that "mini" kinda car of 77K tri's the most i think. Love what you done with the material, you sure you used only a difuse, spec and normall? Looks like the shaders are more complicated.

Your site however looks to simple (not that i can do better i suck at sites as i suck with texturing :D). I would pick a nice color scheme and realy design your site. Go for something similar in design as your models but not to funky and color full it has to be user friendly too.

Good luck!

The images are kinda small but your work is fantastic, the Porco Rosso project really stands out as the most interesting work

I really like this site. Clean, fast and best of all no BS.

Did you make this theme for wordpress yourself or did you find it somewhere on the net? Have been looking for a similar theme myself because I just want a simple site where content can be uploaded quickly and easily. All the themes I have found so far have all the usual wordpress stuff like categories, calender, etc etc.

Oh and your content is nice as well. Your Porco Rosso project is wicked! Best of luck with your jobhunting :)
