So bored...

Is there anyone that have a skin idea? I am so bored now a days I could really have some goal to aim at... I am best at coding (I think) so if you can do graphics or have any idea for graphics... I would gladly help... if I like the idea :P

I thought about making a modern skin based on Strong Bad Emails, probably with the Compy 386 screen, but I gave up on modern skins. In fact, if you want, I'd think it was cool to have a modern version of any of my classic skins http://www1.1001skins.com/member_pro...uthor_id=15239 If any of those strike your interest, I'd be glad to help with graphics.


Who is the milkman? What is the purpose of the goggles?

Mega Man is cool. 8-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit? (or anime/cartoon?) In any case, check out Sprites, Inc for Mega Man graphics from every game ever. http://sprites.planet-megaman.com/

Well, I like the anime, and it's more suited when working with a modern skin..

The portraits which is on the front page of the site you posted is good.. if you get my drift.

That's the type of graphics that would would be cool..

I am really not a fan of theme skins though, making original stuff is more my thing, but I got nothing better to do atm.

I suppose you could do it that way, I just think it might be more fun with 16 or 32 bit graphics so then you could have a characters as buttons and sliders with full animations. I think it would be easier to do that in a modern skin than a classic one, because you aren't limited by button size.
Like this style maybe.

It's easier to manage space with modern skin. It's harder to make it functional.. um it's harder to make it innovative

But what would have been cool was to not make the player with megaman characters, but to put characters in the scenery, even changing characters of some variable data.. maybe by a timer or date or something

Maybe draw the characters ourselves...

If there isn't one already, how about a MenuAmp ? Winamp where the various features & options appear and function like Windows Explorer menus.

Something like :

Winamp
|
[-]-- Playback buttons
|     |
|     - Previous
|     |
|     - Play
|     |
|     .....(other pb buttons)
|
|
[+]-- Other windows
|     |
|     Playlist
|     |
|     Media Library


etc.

Should involve more coding than graphics.

Why not one about your site? Then the hammer could be a custom Visulization?

You could consider right-cliking the taskbar or the tray icon as a menu based winamp.... still missing some fetaures such as equalizer and other things that needs a visual.

The rack thing looks a bit like my AudioRack (in my sig).
You're free to decide what kind of skin you want to make of course, I just wanted you to know and I would never report it as a rip.
In fact, I'm curious what your rack would look like.

Ah, nice skin Michelsen

That's what I am taling about

Actually the layout on your skin is superb... could use a more realistic finish though, or that waht I was planning to do... but those switches and that lowest module with channel leds... just what I had in mind

[edit]
But how could you ever report it as a skinrip.. I've never seen your skin before now

Yes I know, I'm not so good at graphics unfortunately... Still, I like it, and friends and other users are very happy with it too, so I'm satisfied.
