Retrospective of Web Design

I was going through an old external drive and found some previous versions of The Little Shiro’s website. The first two are concepts I designed and the last one is the first official version of the website.

I went on a fun nostalgia trip looking at all sorts of old versions of websites! I will challenge myself to make a revamped version of Shiro’s website for this day and age.

Animal Crossing Updates!

I followed a video tutorial on YouTube since I liked the way it looked. But the example had stairs on one side for the entrance and figured you need a way to get down, so a staircase on the other side. I realized that it was giving me a weird headache every time I ran up and ran down two sets of stairs and removed that. I changed it so it was completely flat and you have a clear pathway to the stores and into the island.

I have some empty areas for the upcoming Mario items and Sanrio items. I probably should change the stage area to fit more with the Japanese theme that I have going on. In fact, that was my original idea but my island went through several versions before finally reaching this one.

I’m surprised it’s already coming up on a year since Animal Crossing came out? I can’t believe it’s already going to be March! Time seemed to have flown by but also not flown by all at the same time.

A friend of mine got the game recently, and it’s been fun trying to help her out with things. The new items and the cherry blossom seasons are going to be exciting to go through again. I hope that Nintendo has learned with Bunny Day and has a plan for this year… there were way too many eggs spawning. Ugh, the horror!

The Marvel Universe

I grew up watching the X-Men cartoon because it came on before something else I wanted to watch. So, I always had a little soft spot for the X-Men. I liked the first two X-Men movies that came out in the early 2000s but am definitely interested to see where Marvel takes them with their versions in the coming future.

WandaVision promo picture

“WandaVision” probably will be the first series that they could possibly say Wanda is a mutant instead of “another adjective here” that they kept using beforehand. I liked the first two eps and can’t wait for the rest of the series as it comes out. Oh, Disney+ getting my money all the way through “Loki” series in May for sure.

I saw a lot of vocal people on the internet didn’t enjoy the 50s and 60s style of the first two episodes. I would sometimes watch “The Dick Van Dyke” or “Bewitched” episodes when it’d rerun on Nick At Night. I thought the first eps were great, and then the fun, “Wait… this isn’t as what it seems…” as alluded to in the trailers.
