By the way, did anyone experience problems with lag while viewing the page? Personally, I get heavy lag if the light circle is moving across the main banner at the same time that I'm scrolling over a button. All of the animations get jumpy and slow to a crawl. I guess I need to fix that, but it may involve getting rid of the "searchlight" effect (as Crackers called it)... and I don't really want to do that... *sigh*
About the stones, I agree. They look a bit too hand-drawn; if you roughened them up a bit, and made the stained glass even more contrasting with a ticker black border in between the panes, I personally think it would look better. But then again, if you push it too far, you'd have to change the motif of the whole page, since the wolf's head, and a lot of everything else for that matter, is similarly synthetic-looking. I actually liked Wolfy's old site in that regard; I don't remember exactly, and I might turn out to be wrong, but it seemed to me that the stones looked more...real?
I saw nothing I would describe as "lag" really; the buttons changed from the normal, over, and click animations pretty smoothly (yeah, I've done some Flash myself), but I did notice that the searchlight itself stuttered stuttered, particularly when I ran my cursor over the buttons more quickly. Might I suggest, instead of the searchlight, using flashes of lightning to periodically illuminate the stained glass? It would probably make it a bit smoother, and also add to the atmosphere at the same time.
But those two points aside, I love it! Given even the relatively simple look of the site, I can't wait to see some of the other artwork you've done in the Wylfgard world.
