Is there anyone out there who makes FMA layouts that is still active?  
 It seems like all the FMA layout request communitys haven't been updated in ages. I was wondering If they is anyone out there who does layout requests CURRENTLY

I might be able to help you out. I do some freelance web design. What did you have in mind?

All i know is I want this picture http://www.theotaku.com/wallpapers/view/205045/thumbs_up

other then that i'm not sure. the normal red and black colers are a bit to dark for me and i realy like a color scheme made to fit that picture)


mabye adding "Rabid Fan Of The Original Anime" as header text or somthing

and these poems on opisite sides somwhere (maybye in the corners i dunno your the expert)

(first poem: (aka top or left if they are paralel)

"In the darkness I hear you call my name, I need you close to me.
I know you need me with you now. am I the only light you see?"

(and bottom poem)

"Without you I was broken, dark and empty inside"
"No matter what, I won't lose you again. Al I need you by my side."

Re: layout
A couple of questions:

1. That specific wallpaper? Or would a similar image do? The reason I ask is because it's a graphic design that someone made--out of official art, yes, but still someone's amateur work--and I would want the artist's permission before using it.

2. Just poked around and found out that you have a plus account. I've never honestly used a plus account because the ads drive me crazy (I have a paid account on this name, and I use free accounts for anything else I might have), so I'm not sure of all the options. I know LJ has the "S2" option for layout design, but it lacks the versatility to do all of that exact work you're asking for, unless you're fluent in CSS (which I am not).

Now, I HAVE done a little work with an S2 layout on a free account--my writing journal is faereinfer, and I think it looks pretty nice. :) My best recommendation for you would be to head over to thefulcrum or something of that ilk, pick out a layout you like, and I will do the rest (change the colors, graphics, etc.) This is nice because the girl who runs thefulcrum writes the CSS that I don't know how to do, and I just tweak the HTML and the graphics to make it look the way you want it.

This might be more helpful: all her stuff that has a 'add your own header image' stuff.

3. The best way I've found to work a layout like this is for you to temporarily change your password once I've got everything set up and let me poke around in your journal. If you are uncomfortable with this, I completely understand. The thing is, in the world of HTML, something ALWAYS goes wrong, and if I'm not on the inside, I can't always tell what. We can find ways around this if that makes you uncomfortable, but I have done this for a few of my friends and if you'd like, I can have them vouch for my character. XD

Let me know what you think~

Re: layout

Re: layout
Because it's altered from the original. That person put a lot of time and effort into that wallpaper, and, well, graphic artists are artists too.

Re: layout
Sorry, it's a personal policy of mine not to use any fanworks in layouts without permission.
