After 30 hours of work, my brand new, made-from-scratch portfolio is finally complete. I'm still working on improving page loading, but it looks and works like a charm when the last byte gets downloaded. :)

The icons at the top didn't work for me when I clicked them. It also seems like a lot of content to scroll through and a lot of everything. I left confused about what you specialize in or what you want to offer me. I also skipped over a lot because I was fatigued by the length.
No intent to to tear it down. I think it's a good site design, it just needs some consistency, shortening, and main topic. I would rather offer honest critique than "Very nice" comments that a lot of people give.
Thanks for the feedback @Kyle Adams. This website just basically acts as a portfolio for everything I've done and created, not to offer anything. I'm also surprised the icons at the top didn't work for you since they're only anchor links, unless you're using a mobile device (which I will have a separate site for soon). I would greatly appreciate if you let me know what browser you are using so I can look into the problem. Thanks again for the honest critique!
@Matt Bowers I'm using Safari 6.0.2. I'm glad you don't take me wrong. It took me forever to narrow down what it is I want to showcase and what I want to either express on another outlet or do as a strict hobby.
I would just suggest that you explore that area and consider what matters to you the most. I, like yourself, use to have everything I did on one site. But I found that having ALL of my skills (UI, Iconography, Typography, Illustration, CGI, Photography, a bit of web development, and graphic design) was a lot for anyone to take in. I was instantly seen as a confused artist and skipped over.
That's just my personal experience. Hopefully it makes some sense.
Brilliant concept Matt! Really lovely site you have there, inspired me to do an overhaul myself!

Thanks @Zan | ninetofive.me! I'm actually working on remaking my website to make it a little more modern for my interest, like implementing responsive layouts, more CSS3 transitions, and all that jazz. I love your stuff as well, and I'd be excited to see what site you'd come up with! Thanks again :)
