i know u want to help me , but i’m trying to edit the designs , so i can’t post them here . thanks . but , for example , my designs have some features that every themeforest theme has . like superfish dropdown menu , hoverintent , sliders , portfolio and more … in advance , my question is how did you started to learn and design themes ?
I just looked at other themes here. And created my own style of themes based on inspiration.

I don’t think you can start so easy in making templates from the beginning. First thing you need is to make simple sites, that don’t require the level of sophistication and customization needed in the stock area. You need to learn & experience how the html, css & all that work with real content before making heavy standardized stuff like the templates. Editing stuff you already find on the internet can help… but building it from the beginning makes you understand better how it works.
It’s a lot to learn and I’m sure ThemeProvince had already a background in webdev before making templates for this market.
i have some basic experiences , for example : i know html tags completely , 70-75 % css tags , 70-75 % of wordpress tags . and now i can start designing a basic (very simple) html template and convert it to wordpress . but problem is when i try to design some professional templates like ThemeForest designs .
everytime i tried to start designing , when i saw your designs , i have completely disappointed !Same thing here. I start doing the design and I stumble upon some template here and literally get depressed because mine isn’t as pretty.
I am planning to start by creating small things first like some web elements.
templattica saidbad to hear it , and good to hear that i’m not only one who disappointed with designs !
