    That's some very good looking art you got there.

    Ofc criticism depends on what your aim is. If you wanna sell stuff/get people interested professionally, it's lacking some stuff of course.

    I find the gallery thing a bit tedious to navigate. It doesn't auto-scroll to the next slide, and you there is no next/prev buttons which are way simpler than clicking at individual pictures.

    Personally, I'd find it intresting to read more about the artist behind, a bit on who you are and what techniques you do (per picture would be interesting indeed) and so on. But like I said, would need to know the purpose/aim before I can say too much.

    Hi,

    Well, the art is just what I do when im bored, im ok with it, not bad but it's not something I do professionally.

    I was more interested in how the site works itself, the CSS code etc and how it worked, or, didnt work.

    With regards to the images, I agree, maybe an autoscrolller, on a timer or something? Would that annoy people?

    In terms of knowing about the artist, what would you be interested in? What would you want to know?

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    If you want to keep it simple, you don't need to TELL anyone that you are keeping it simple. They will get it. x the first four words. See? More simple.

    Then, rather than let people guess what it is you do for a living - based on the tools you use in your work - how about stating it explicitly? One rule I like to use when writing is to avoid anything that is going to make the reader stop and try to figure-out what you were getting-at. Don't make it a puzzle.

    And you can't have ANY spelling or grammar errors in something so short. It should be "who's" not "whos".

    Finally: throw the cow over the fence some hay, but only if you're Pennsylvania-Dutch. Should be "A few of the projects I've worked on include..."

    I realize this isn't exactly the kind of advice you asked for, but it's what I'm able to help you with.
