Fella Journalskin v3

A free version of the skin I made for #hq's blog.

Live Preview

Live preview can be found here.


  • Supports: lists, thumbs, links, bold and moods.

  • The fancy blockquote needs some extra attention:

    <blockquote><i class="lq">&#8220;</i> #### TEXT GOES HERE #### <i class="rq">&#8221;</i></blockquote>

  • The fancy author box needs to be manually updated ( to change my name to yours ):
    In your journal, click on the options tab, take a look at the "skin header" box and find:


    replace this by:



Fella by greatLP


Feel free to use, abuse and modify this skin in any way you want. If you want to give credits that's fine, but if you don't then I won't care ;)

Enjoy :)

I kinda hoped to give my very first critique to artwork of less quality, but oh well, this really caught my eye.

Lets put it all in the order of those little stars on the right, shall we?
Vision: for starters, I have to say this really caught my eye. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was gonna end up in my journal. The overall design = eye candy. It's really shiny, modern and suits dA's current skin perfectly. The speech bubble with the deviant's icon and username is a really nice touch, kinda gives it a somewhat formal feel. Plus, the shadow on the header makes it look, like it's popping out of the screen, 3D even - good work.;). Though there is a slight flaw: once you select to put the "mood, playing, drinking, watching etc." section at the top, the first line is blocked by the speech bubble.

Originality: I found it to be very gorgeous, shiny and all. Fella and his laptop look great, but I wouldn't say its super original. The idea of someone sitting on top the journal's header typing isn't the very first. But seeing as how the overall design was made, it's suitable.:thumbsup:

Technique: Well, I don't think there's much to say here. I see soft colors, gradient, fading out. It's all good for this CSS.

Impact: It certainly made me feel more hi-tech after updating my journal.:giggle: This design is absolutely marvelous and if it were in my power, I'd make this one an official dA journal skin, since the current one is really plain and quite frankly, ugly (but don't tell anyone, unless it's the admins and they actually plan to do something about it).:paranoid:

PictureThisDeviant Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
This journal skin looks great!
But it doesn't seem to work well for me. The fella picture is cut...
i'v seen that someone here sujested a way to fix it, but when i edit the picture, the upper side of the frame jumps up and floats above Fella's head...

Can you tell me how i can make the Fella picture show while keeping the frame as is is?

I really like the journal, but the image of fella is cut off for me :/
Anyone else have this issue?
Jaggerjo12 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I hope I'm not bothering you, but do you maje journal skins for people? Like from anime shows or movies? If you don't, would you happen to know someone who does?
I am on a search for a new journal skin before my 2 month premium goes out and there was a particular anime I was looking for. C:

What dimensions did you use for this skin?
Art-of-Eric-Wayne Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
This looks cool. I tried to customize it for my own profile, in which case I wanted to use my own graphic for the header, and not the DA little guy. Hope no one minds my tweaking it out.
TiRiSh Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Really great design! I'll use it for my today's journal entry!
Thank you very much ^__^

Peace-Wolf Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011
Ever since the new "Fave journal" thing DA added it's messing up the top part of my journal and I can see it's messing up for others who are using this journal coding. :(
Any idea how to fix it? This is my FAVORITE journal skin of all time and I've been using it forever lol
amorias Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011  Professional Digital Artist

Peace-Wolf Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011

Hello, I know it's been a while but could you help me out with this? :saddummy:
I know it's the CSS section that you change this, but I'm not sure which part I need to edit it ^^;
Thanks so much!

It's noy being installed to my journal when I click the button.
SonicDash57 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Cool journal skin! And I read the instructions on the skin header and changed it to my name, so I have no problems with that. Thanks man!
Peace-Wolf Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2011
Awesome! I love using it, I've been using it for a long time now! :heart:
However it suddenly started messing up. If I edit the same journal too many times(like 2 or 3) the header gets weird, so does the icon part too. Idk if this is a DA thing or a problem with the CSS... probably DA lol.
KatrinaBonebrake Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Everyone's having a problem with the header....GUYS have to make your own!!! Check out mine in my journal [link] . You have to use Photoshop or another program, cut off the part that you dont want showing over the Journal Title, and BAM.....the header will work. Just replace his file with your image from photobucket....yey!

This is really an attractive theme. Thank you for making it available for us!

It's really awesome, but I have some problem... I'm not good with CSS, and I don't know how to change the picture on the top =( Could you help me please?

bladebandit Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011
Just like someone else has said,

Images are broken for me, too. :(
SloorpWorld Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've been using this great journal skin for a very long time. But suddenly the images are broken. Will you fix it, please?
Phlum Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Fantastic! :clap:

Only things being that the list is slightly chopped off by the speech bubble [which I'm sure can be remedied with a simple image change] and the fact that a thumbnail in my footer has a background image which I can't seem to get rid of. :shakefist:
Ailoncha Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
