Web Dev Resources
This is a collection of resources that helped me create this site, which may help you with yours too! You can click through most graphics on my site to get to the original artists, and there’s also attribution sporadically commented within my source code. If you ever have a question about where I got or learned something, feel free to ask in my guestbook.

Japanese Pixel Sozai Sites

Sorahana primarily contains cute, nature-themed graphics for soft, fairytale vibes.

Asterism contains elegant, sparkly, and lacy web material, covering backgrounds, icons, and templates.
Pokyaron has small pixel web resources as well as large art, spanning many styles. However, it may be difficult to navigate if you don’t know Japanese.
