    I created this test theme to see if I have potential to create themes. I used
    Artisteer and am thinking of purchasing it, but wanted to get advice from the WP community first.

    Is this a good starter theme?
    How Can I improve it?
    What sucks about it?

    Please be brutal and I build productivity out of criticism and want to learn!

    The pink and white are a bit brutal on my eyes. I stare at the screen almost all day long and I've made a custom javascript that specifically converts any white backgrounds to beige for exactly that reason. The blog layout doesn't seem bad, but the feel of it isn't quite inviting to me. I think you might want to investigate the effects of colors on people. One big suggestion for making it feel a lot better is to use more earth tones. If your favicon/logo is a nice faded green money sign, I suggest using that color throughout the site. A nice faded shade of green (instead of the pink), and a beige background instead of white (for the main content). A secondary color could be a faded brown tone (where the giant black header area is). These suggestions could go a long way to making the user feel more at home on your blog. Of course, design is also a matter of personal taste :)

    Don't purchase this, looks way too much like layout theft of Bankaholic.com - nobody likes a mimickery.

    The design leaves quite a bit to be desired.

    I agree that the pink is too harsh. I already have a headache...
    But I'd continue looking and trying different things. It took me forever before I found the theme I liked the best!
    Good luck!
