Talking Skin I'm working on.

Hello all...this is a skin I am working on now. Been a while since I have been in PS making a design and came up with this one so far. I don't know anything about what you must do or have in order to make a skin. If this can be a skin let me know. Maybe someone can inform me about this. But, here the start of what I have so far:



Comments and suggestions ar always welcomed.

Thanks for the replies guys. I surely will try to finish this one. And as RoNtZ said,I know I need to get my cbuttons placed just right. Again, thanks guys for looking and helping me out. Oh...forgot...anyone have any good names available for this skin...I don't have a name for it.

Hmm, yes, this does look pretty cool. I do have some criticisms though, such as the speaker insets need to be a little more rounded. You know, small stuff like that.
Anyway, I'd like to see where this goes

Thanks all...yes I need a coder to see what they can do to this thing. This is my first try so I don't know what all needs to be done to get it finished really. I would appreciate the help in telling what all is needed. Just call me a newbie, newbie...hehehehe Can someone tell me what all is needed on the button parts? Oh...thanks VicB, Vica and everyone for encouraging me on...appreciate that. Will see what I can do about the buttons in the white grey area.

Excellent work so far, keep up.
My suggestions for now on:
-Try to keep it "ligth" in weight, no special visualization or things like that, Winamp 3 it's already too heavy.
-(maybe u already know this-->) Make 1 or 2 modes more, I recommend 1 with main options of the normal mode and 1 very small (like a "bar" if u want of something alike).
-Tooooooooo many color themes , U could ask for "color theming" here in this thread before releasing. (I think I don't need to tell u this, someone else will show u what he do with your skin eventually, that's the way it works )

quite good
only thing that gets me is the amount of times uve used the orb effect. maybe if u use a soft metal in that colour for the smaller orbs it might look better.

UPDATE...NEED OPINIONS:

Would this take away from the amp if I place the EQ above like in this example? Could really use the feedback on this one.

it's ok I gues... It wouldn't make a big difference to me if it were retractable. (I don't use the EQ)

The world is made of conflicts: good and evil, order and chaos, light and dark, hot and cold. All are essential to life. None can prevail for any length of time, or life will fail. In the end, the best any can hope for is balance.

humm... I think it breaks main skin design, it's too "squared" compared with the rest, don't u think? Oh, and u use a tube to connect it to the main skin.. I think that breaks the design too because u didn't use it before. My advice; try to keep with curved shapes.

I like dlink's idea- the eq should slide up and 'hide'. I think the balance should go in the blank area on the right. Make the thinger where the time is. The arrows go in the bars to the left and right of the time (see pic). When you press an arrow, the time fades out and is replaced by the thinger. After two seconds, the thinger fades out again.
