This is a simple journal skin, which should fit the overall style of deviantArt. It has no colourful header or background, but you can...
Pick a Fella!
The ASF-Skin supports over a dozen different Fellas*; you can choose which one you want to lurk at your journal's top, or change him every other day.
Thanks go to ¢greatLP

-- Detailed manual --
That would be those "Links" within the second box.
They are to be found within the "Skin Header" edit field, which appears when you hit "Edit Skin". There is a DIV element with the class "menu". Within you'll find/place your menu items. Which are "A" tags. If you are not sure what I'm talking about, copy mine: From [a] to [/a] (read "<" ">" instead of "[" "]"). There is a attribute called href="", copy the URL into the "" (URL = address - copy it from your browser's nav bar) and everything between [a] and [/a] is the name of the menu item. This will appear in the menu box. If you know all of this ignore me
No simple text:
To get the most out of the skin you have to use DIV elements to contain your text. Every first-level-DIV will create a new container for one main-headline and one content region (e.g., one box with the bright headline bar). A main headline needs its own DIV-Element with the class "head", and a content region needs a DIV element with the class "txt".
Just in case... A DIV element is a tag: [div] content [/div], just with "<", ">" instead of "[" and "]". They work like parentheses: [div] opens, [/div] closes.
So a Simple Fella Box would read like this: [div][div class="head"] your headline [/div][div class="txt"] your content [/div][/div]
Within a content region you may use sub-headlines by utilizing a SPAN element: [span] your sub-headline [/span] (again, use "<", ">" instead of "[" and "]")
Mood 'n Stuff:
The skin settings let you choose to display the moodstuff at the top - that will not work with "A Simple Fella". Don't set "Show these:" to "At the top of my entry".
Finally I'm telling you how to change the Fella:
Go to the "Edit Skin" view, and find the edit field called "Skin Header". The first DIV element sets the fella, it is the "fellahold" – this is the class name followed by the fella's name: , e.g., class="fellahold fellajedi". Just change the name of the fella: class="fellahold fellaHISNAME". Besides my own fellajedi, "A simple fella" is set to support plenty of fellas made by ¢greatLP

Not enough? You want even MOAR fellas? Yay for fellas! You'll have to create a new CSS entry for each fella, look into the CSS for examples. Just ask me if you need help.
