edit: The new layout has been put into use: http://www.penguinpedia.com
Comparing the two, which one would you rather visit again? Someone told me the new one looks to childish.. but I really like the look of it. Its bright, colorful and the icons I drew look really good.
So anyways, honest opinions please

rtbenson.. could you maybe explain why it looks cheap? To me it looks almost cartoony, which is the look I was going for, I dont see how it could look cheap.
the new one actually looks more interesting and makes me want to see more, it defiantly stands out more.
This is exactly what I am after.. the old layout just seems boring to me.
Thanks for your input guys

Thanks, I changed the outlines to a lighter grey color, and it looks much better now (the changes arent on the net yet though)

I decided to go ahead and use the new layout.. in the end I still like it better.. and well its my website
It seemed that the people I asked about the two layouts were all split on who liked what, so I had to make the decision myself. Anyways, you can see the almost final version on my website now.

Onvx: I do have a template I made that inspired this new layout.. but I dont think I want to release it anymore, it looks to similar.
psyris: I used mostly flash to make it, with a little bit of photoshop.
