Well, what's the website supposed to be?

What theme? Should we see something other then a background and a white rounded corner square?

Ah, well it's an unfinished concept - I maybe posted it prematurely through enthusiasm :)


Not quite a theme... yet...

You need some lore ipsum and picture place holders to give it some context. Otherwise it just looks like a bad wallpaper.

Not much of a mock up. You need to add something as what you intend to use.

For instance, if you plan on having lots of flash or multimedia that design may not work. If its just a blog with links it may be ok. To be honest, it looks nice but its impossible to know if it works with your intended purpose.

I recommend a hipster font, preferably something with a strong serif, and lots of Lorem Ipsum. Some creepy pictures of people smiling doesn't hurt either. :D

Hehe I think it's a little cookiecutter but the gradients and all are very nice :)

The glowing tombstone needs a glowing "RIP" carved on it.





And less empty space
around the tombstone.

I cannot stand when people overly use gradients and huge rounded edges.

So my suggestion is to tone down the radius of the rounded edges. Also if your going for a border effect that separates the site and footer (assuming the bottom is a footer) make it more subtle.

Less is more IMO. Its fine to want to clearly define each space but you don't need to over do it so much. For example the white content area and its blue background has so many barriers right now, color contrast, light blue gradient, white stroke, drop shadow and before you even have time to take in the blue background you are hit with another gradient from the footer or edges.
