Welcome, guest, to Chromatic (v2.0 Maraquan Blue)! It was previously titled Premades by Bess, but that was kind of boring; so when I - Bess, as you may have gathered - revamped the site, I decided to change the name as well.

I love to code layouts and make graphics, so a while ago I decided I would collect them all in one place and make them useful. Whenever I find the time, I make layouts and add them to this here site for you to use. Be sure to check out the resources and extra content as well!

But first - look over there to the right at the Rules & Information section.

March 26th, 2012
Listed at Simple Gifts. Look at me, I'm just updating all over the place! No new content, though. As always, sorry about that. =/

March 24th, 2012
Listed at FCN Dailys.

March 19th, 2012
Oh hey I still exist. Listed at Masked.

February 3rd, 2012
New affiliate - Fantasy Dreams.

January 27th, 2012
Oh hey, it's 2012... Anyway. Clearly I haven't added anything to the site. I promise not to make promises, because I can't keep them. XD All my layouts should still work, though - I just fixed a minor filter bug. Message me if you have any problems; even if I don't update I get on the site for at least a few minutes pretty much every day.

September 24th, 2011
Hey y'all. This is basically an "I'm not dead" update; you'll be seeing a lot of those over the course of this school year, unfortunately. If I finish my homework for this weekend I'll put up another graphic layout.

September 11th, 2011
The Hanso & Brynn graphic userlookup has been reworked and put up. Also, now affiliated with the lovely Absoleum.

September 3rd, 2011
I checked, and position is not getting through the petpage filters, just the userlookup filters apparently. I don't have any new layouts for you guys, sorry, buuuut... I've updated my coding guide. I plan to add to both of my sites in smaller increments over the course of the (too-fast) approaching school year. I will be beyond annoyed if the filters change so drastically again in the near future.

August 30th, 2011
The Grundo Snow Throw graphic userlookup has been restored to it's former glory (that was surprisingly painless...). Also, it seems as though position is getting through the userlookup filters without incident now... I still haven't checked if that's the case with petpage filters. I'll try it out tomorrow, probably, and possibly update all my codes (they should still work, they just might not be as efficient as they could be).

August 29th, 2011
Made the petpage version of the Goldyfish graphic layout. Also, I seem to have missed Chromatic's 10,000th pageview, so a belated thanks to you all for visiting and I hope you enjoy my layouts! ^^

August 24th, 2011
I have officially responded to every neomail sent to me during my 15 minutes (well, week) of surprising Neofame after winning the ULS. If you sent me a neomail and I have not replied to you at all, please let me know. Also, as a result of my ULS win and the resulting Neomails, I decided to set up a multi-purpose Bess Page. It includes a F.A.Q., some coding tutorials, a "site portal" and bio, and... well, maybe I'll add some more sections later if I see fit. Check it out and don't be afraid to send in questions - I'd love to help, even if I'm rather slow about it. XD Oh yeah - in actually site-related news, the petpage version of the Faerieland graphic layout is now available.

August 21st, 2011
I know I've been MIA for a while - sorry! But look, I have a graphic-based petpage to offer you! It's the petpage version of the Darigan Citadel layout.

August 10th, 2011
Now listed at Wystia (or I will be in the near future). More updates coming later, I have far too many neomails to manage at the moment, I don't know how Cass does it. XD

August 8th, 2011
The Stripetastic CSS petpage has been revamped and now works better than ever. And now I really have no excuse not to move on to the graphic layouts... I'm not sure I'm going to get them all to work with the filters, but I'll try my best. In other news, now re-affiliated with the newly restored and wonderful Foomanshu.

August 7th, 2011 - later
Every CSS petpage has been tested in every browser (well, every browser it's supposed to work in - look to the box at the right). They all work correctly (or, if something's amiss, it's noted on the full layout preview - also see right). The only exception is the Stripetastic layout; the links look a little funky in IE and there seems to be no easy fix for it. It's in need of a major revamp, anyway - tomorrow I'll convert all the messy tables into much nicer, cleaner, div boxes.

August 7th, 2011
With the addition of the Watermelon layout, all the CSS petpages have been reworked and put up. Hooray! Except now I need to go through them all again and make sure they work correctly in every browser. Also, I should probably grab the color schemes and add them to that section of Resources.

August 5th, 2011
The Triple Tiered CSS petpage has been reworked and put up. Also, Chromatic is now listed at Affinity.

August 4th, 2011
The Stripetastic CSS petpage has been reworked and put up.

August 3rd, 2011
The Sleek Sections, Stickynav, and Sickynav v2 CSS petpages have been reworked and put up.

August 1st, 2011
The Purple Power CSS petpage has been reworked and put up. You know, I don't really like that name, but I can't think of anything else to call that particular layout. At least it's alliterative. Also, Chromatic is now affiliated with the lovely Exclusive.

July 31st, 2011
Another new affiliate - the lovely Nienke's Premades.

July 30th, 2011
A new affiliate - the lovely Raindrop. (Also, two re-added affiliates, Izzy's Graphics and HTML & CSS Tutorials.) The "small diamonds" tiled backgrounds are now available for you to use.

July 29th, 2011
The Pretty in Pink CSS petpage has been reworked and put up, and some nice "small stripes" and "big diamonds" tiled backgrounds are now available for you to use. For some reason I'm in a resource-y mood... any little coding tricks you want me to put in the Coding Tidbits section?

July 28th, 2011
The Petite Pastels CSS petpage has been reworked and put up.

July 27th, 2011
Wow, I guess I really shouldn't promise much of anything. XD Anyway, more than a month later I have returned to Chromatic with a remade CSS petpage, two new listers - Zioned Directory and Enchanted - and... an additional 4000 pageviews? That's absolutely ridiculous, I don't believe that I doubled my pageviews over the course of one month. Either boingdragon is malfunctioning or I'm more popular than I thought. Thanks, guys.

June 23rd, 2011
New (old and re-added?) affiliate, Cass's wonderful Create Impressions. So I've actually been kind of busy lately (whaaat, friends?!), but I'll try to put up a layout or two before I go off to camp. (I'm starting off small for now, I don't want to go crazy with the promises yet.)

June 20th, 2011
New affiliate - the lovely Autumn Breezes.

June 19th, 2011 - later
Hey look, I was productive! The Goldyfish graphic userlookup has now been remade to work with the filter changes. Goodness gracious, these graphic layouts are going to take forever.

June 19th, 2011
Due to popular request (I love that I can say that, thank you sooooo much for your neomails, guys), Chromatic is back up even though I'm not nearly done with all the content. So please excuse all the missing stuff, and use the layouts at your own risk - not all of them have been tested in every browser. I'll get around to putting up old layouts, fixing things, actually putting up the new content... eventually.

My rules are extremely simple and straightforward: LEAVE CREDIT and DO NOT REDISTRIBUTE my content. I shouldn't have to spell out exactly what is and isn't stealing.

Keep in mind that while I'd prefer you leave the graphical layouts as they are, you can edit the CSS layouts as much as you want (leave credit, though!).

Every layout here at Chromatic works in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, and Opera, unless otherwise specified. Layouts always look the best in Firefox, my browser, but I have tried my hardest to achieve perfection in all the above browsers.

Each layout is presented with a small preview and a link to a full-sized preview on this page. The full-sized previews have specific notes about the layout's browser compatibility, etc.

If you want/need to contact me for any reason, just go to the sitely section and click the appropriate link in the Contact box. I promise I don't bite! =)

Because graphics can take longer to make, and are easily recyclable, I (aim to) have a userlookup and petpage version of every graphical layout. The text box on the left is for userlookups; the text box on the right is for petpages.

The full-sized preview for the petpage version is directly underneath the preview for the userlookup version.

To copy a code, click inside the appropriate text box, hit Ctrl+A, then hit Ctrl+C. Go here to edit your userlookup; go here to edit your petpages.

*Concerning style tags: The Neopets filter was being very annoying about letting me display my coding in text boxes, so I had to modify it a little. Once you copy and paste your code, change {style} to style and {/style} to /style.

Go right ahead and customize these as much as you want. Coding is much more flexible than a graphic, so I really don't mind if you want to go crazy changing colors and resizing and adding your own images and whatever else - just leave credit.

I don't offer any textures or brushes - for those I recommend Nienkju's Resources and Mary's stamps. However, I've found that over years of layout-making I've accumulated quite a few backgrounds, and I've worked with tons of color schemes.

Hopefully you find those - plus a few coding tidbits - helpful as you make your own layouts or edit my css offerings!

Credit isn't necessary... but it would be nice if you stuck a text link somewhere. =)

In addition to premade layouts and resources, Chromatic has some neat extra features. Learn about the Chromatic Pageant, a layout contest, below. Have some wisdom to share with the layout-making community? Be sure to submit it to the Tips & Tricks section to the right. If you're interested, in the History on the far right you can learn more about Chromatic and its predecessor.

Unfortunately, the Chromatic Pageant is not running at the moment. :( Say it with me now: "Bess will do it eventually"

Have some advice to offer on running a premades/layout request site, or on layout-making in general? Send it on over (to seegensays, with subject Chromatic TT) and I might add it here.

Good quality sites only; I'm picky, sorry. No link directories, no review sites. Also, if you have 20+ affiliates, no tiny marquee! Send mails to seegensays, with subject C Aff Req.

Please let me know if you've listed Chromatic in your link directory! Send mails to seegensays, with subject Chromatic Listing.



All the layouts on this page (including the current site layout) were designed and coded by me (Bess). The brushes/textures used are from Nienkju's Resources and Mary's Stamps. The neomail envelopes are from Serendipity. The link back buttons are linked to their creators.

The navigation style featured in layouts such as King Coltzan was inspired by the lovely Inge. The Darigan Citadel layout was inspired by some of the adorable ones Tyler has made in the past. The Alphabetized css petpage was inspired by a Microsoft Word 2007 title page design.

Thanks a bunch Nick for giving me a trick to get around the userlookup filters! Some more filter help from here.

This site layout was made for my personal use only. Don't use any part of it, even with credit.
