Nice overall design except for one thing. I dont see the point and also dislike the darker grey shade at the bottom right.
Nice LCD, nice shape. Good work :) :up:

one thing i notice in all your skins matt..is that your lcd's are usually only one color with a inner glow..or they're a gradient...you need to add a texture or something. Oh..and the outer glow..on the outside of the entire thing...no point...either make it much smaller...or just have a drop shadow. Hmmm...and maybe add a more 3d effect to your buttons. They look flat. Sorry for all the crit...but im just trying to help. :) Keep it up...this could turn out nicely!

@OzObdroOl - how can u not see the point? i have done shit all on it so not even i can tell whats been done or not. the darker shade bit at the bottom is half way thru a grip for it, trying to make it more real.
@witmer - whats so bad for having one colour? in my opinion all textures to to an lcd is draw ur attention away from what u want..since when did u c a texture on a real lcd? im not sure whether ur blind or not but that is a drop shadow around the outer edge..its just got a distance of 2 or 3 pixels..the buttons do have a 3d effect, yet again since when do u have buttons that protude heaps.
there prolly won't b n e more updates for this for a while as im more interested in getting my other skin, Palillo, ready for the GUI Olympics.

nothing looks connceted. everything looks liek it is floating on top of whatever is beneath it. Also the c-buttons don't look right to me. rectangluar buttons on a skin with no right angles anywhere?

matt, remember.... its YOUR skin, not theirs..
i personally like this skin (2nd, mine's prettier ;))
witmer...instead of saying what you dont see fit, say what improvements you want

it's his skin..he can do what ever the hell he wants with it..im simply saying...that if he doesn't get out of this outer glow and inner glow hype...not many people will want his skin. But if he doesn't care about that...then who cares.
Oh...and you need to take criticism better Matt.

Looks promising, care to add more stuff?

yeah it is my skin and i had only been working on it for like a day...ive been too tied up with other things lately, mainly school work, to actually do sumthing too it.
@witmer - i didn't mean to b bashful but there wasn't one good thing said in that post..id watch ur skins too, there were alot of things that i didn't comment on that weren't nice either, i just didn't say them cause i was being nice.

im not trying to be mean..i simply telling you want needed to be changed..and from now on...please tell me what you do or dont like of my skins...however mean it may be

I have to agree with dlinkwit on the rectangular buttons not entirly fitting the rest of the skin.
Still very nice though.

comments and crit. welcome?
not that so welcome from what ive read so far ;)
anyways, imo the cbuttons would look better if they were maybe a panel of buttons to the right which could be shaped curved to fit the lcd rather than individual buttons, again agree with dlinkwit27 but with a panel it would suit the skin i think
theres a few points on the body & lcd at the top and bottom which could do with smoothing a little, ie where the intersects for the curves are, they look a little unnatural for the overall effect your trying to create
i like the cutaway bit (bottom right) but whats it gonna be used for?

ok...the cut away was goin to b used for a drawer that would pop out, for like eq and thinger..the panel button idea is really good...ill c if i can put it in on the weekend. ill have a good at the curves, dunno how they will turn out.
i dunno how rectangular those buttons are...to me they looks curved round the edges but with the new panel idea i think that it won't matter too much.
