New Look for N+

If you're a regular here at N+ you've probably noticed that the site has slowly changed over the past month or so. That's been my doing. I don't do many news posts on here, and I spend most of my time with N+ changing the visuals. I was asked to become a moderator for N+ to do just that, and here's what's become of my efforts so far.
The page still remains the same width, but with the removal of the background gradient I was able to remove the outside padding and gain some content space in the process while simplifying the page. Now the focus is on the header imagery and the content itself, which is what it should be. In fact, that's all that's left.
It is my idea that from time to time I would create a header image to commemorate a particular part of Nintendo be it a person, character, game, etc. This time it's to commemorate the release of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. This took me quite a while to finish painting it, and I can say I'm relatively happy with the result. It's not the best work I've ever done, but it's gotten to a point I'm ready to stop work on it. I think overall it's an excellent start to what I hope will become a long series of artwork created for N+. You can view a rather large version of the header image in the photo gallery.
I felt that it was time to make it live rather than continue to tweak minor details. I will most likely make the tweaks gradually over time, so this is only the start. Enjoy the new design. I can't wait to do the next one!
Maybe now I can get the time to actually play the game...
