Trying to go for a clean/minimal look. I had a hard time figuring colors out on this one, let me know what you think.

Very minimalistic but those colors really pop against the darker background. Have you ever checked out colourlovers.com, one of my favorite sites for great color combinations :w00t:

I love the colors and the black and white photos you chose for this site. Very reminiscent of classic movie star portraits. My recommendation would be to keep only "Welcome" and "News" on the main page, and move "Gallery", "Services" and "Contact" to secondary pages, though. You already have a link for contact information anyway. As is, the main page has too much information on it, imo.

The "Male" and "Female" navigation links could be combined as "Gallery", later dividing "male" and "female" as search options on the secondary page. Doing this would open up space on the main page to include "Services" as a navigation link.

Doing something other than using all caps to distinguish titles is another recommendation. The title and paragraphs all blend together right now, imo. Maybe simply make the size larger or use a thicker version of the font? Adding color would take too much focus away from main picture and navigation.

And I like the idea of coloring the eyes to give the picture interest and the overall site some balance. I agree with *screamoXcore about coloring the lips, though. Maybe not the exact reds that you used for the navigation but just a subtle hint of red. I can understand that you don't want to make her look like a clown. :)

Nicely done!

thank you very much. i greatly appreciate your comments and critiques. by far the best I've ever received. dA needs more people like you, for it is you and others like you who really help push artists and designers to their full potential. expect to see some comments that will hopefully help push you further as an artists/designer on your work soon.

I really like the use of black / white then the vibrant colors. makes a great focal point, though the navigation might not be the ideal focus. Nice work.

True, blue would be more nice, and the rest of the website looks very good :)

I agree with adding color to the lips! I think that would be a cool affect and would balance the color on the left. This one is AWESOME though, I love it. But I am a girly girl too. ;)

That looks awesome! I think the heading should have small 1 or 2 px lines underneath them, with colours picked from your navigation.

Looks pretty sweet. Kept is real clean and simple. Maybe try a few pixels of spacing between the navigation and the big picture. Maybe even try coloring the girl's lips so it can match the navigation tabs. Good work.
