OK you can see that I used to be a wrought Iron draughtsman and artist. I used to work for a traditional blacksmiths and Art Metal company called Hyders in a remote village buried in the heart of Kent called Hyders Art Metal Company. I had a thorough training in pen and ink work and was taught how to draw a perfectly formed scroll, something that came in very handy when I became a joiner and wood machinist and had to set out a lot of special curved work. The open wrought iron gates or curtains can be used in conjunction with an image placed a web page table or div tag background or can be modified with an online animation editing program.
Any image can be placed in the background
- in this case I used an Enter gif behind the animated gates and an animated "welcome to my website" behind the curtains doors and windows. Remember the Enter and welcome to my website are not part of these animations but are planted into the background. If you download the
animated gates or animated curtains you will have just a transparent background, ready
for you to place any image of your choice behind the doors windows or gates. Of course, if you have animation editing software you always plant the image of your choice into the actual animation and in this case it would not make the animation file size a lot bigger.
The door gates and window animations were created using some of our Sketchup models, we have quite a large range of free 3D models for you to download into the Google Sketchup free software and experiment with.
