Cool Freeform Simpsons Skin

Hey guys/girls. It is me again. I am still very busy with some projects and the situation won’t change till November 26th. All my skin or lieng on ice because I have no time to code because of school and other projects. Besides I had a idea. I bought the Simpson’s third Season DVD last week and I noticed some thing : “Oh my god, we have no Freeform Simpson’s skin”. I would like to make one but since I have no time to design it self and since I am a bad designer I would like to ask you guys if someone is interested in making a Simpson’s skin with me. Would make me glad if some wants to make one with me.

Thx in advance.

Not yet, acctauly not real ybut that is not the problem. I will draw a very first sketch tommorow in the school. I will upload it then and we will see. I know your first skin design and i like it very much but i think the simpsons skin will be more comic. That means very round corners and very softly for bringing the comic atmosphere over. Howevery we will see what we get. I will give you my first idea tommorow and of course you can draw a sketch and show me what you think how the skin should look.

like your idea, the lcd looks cool, the buttons could be a bit different, but anyway. the stdframe could look a bit more as the main window, could you send me the images of the characters you used. i could make something then.

K! School comes first, allways. I´ll give you the simpsons font next time you are online.

@bizzy: I have bart evil pic but not homer i think we will make a skin with changble chars so you can use bart evil or any other Simpsons Char you like!

[edit]
I got him! here it is:
How do you like it? The only evil Homer i found.

I can set this as a url so here is the whole adress:

Cool skin. Can´t wait till start coding it. Much better than the other one(heheheh) The shape is good. Acctualy the shape in not the most important thing in the skin. More than that the object which are on the shape it self. You can change everythign you want. you are 100% free in designing the skin.

added the whole family, had an idea for config, all the chars and the logo can be toggled on and off, and if it's possible (i'm sure it is) with a fade. any suggestion for more things to add? does someone have a good idea for an animated vis in simpson style?

Thx dude. Worked on it. Now the whole family is visible in desktopalpha and normal mode. I will write the scripts for it today. Neal do you allready have the itchy anim? If yes can make a png anim of it as big as it is in the lcd? I will give you the first results this evening.

somethings about the beta:

- place the close, min and shade buttons 1 up
- place the prev, stop, play, pause and next buttons 1 left and 2 up
- the next button seems to be resized as far as i can see it is 1 pix to big (width)

You two seem to be having a pretty good time, eh? jejeje. The skin looks pretty good so far (at least what I've seen so far without installing the beta version). I love programming too so I can relate when I see you two going at it! Keep having fun and keep the cool ideas comming. The skin is looking aweosome and the ideas I've been reading will make it quite original! Later guys!
