Looks pretty good - can't wait to see more of it. The glass looks like decent enough glass for me, but then again, i'm not an artist.

thanx.. i have no idea where i wanna go with this skin yet.. but believe it or not my old skin "iced blue" made me think of this.. LOL.. been thinking about how to do glass for a couple of years now.. tried a few times.. never succeeded.. but i guess i now have an angle which makes it kinda glassy..

the skin wont be anything like iced blue though.. cuz that just wont work with the size of the tubing and stuff..

(in case ppl dont know iced blue, follow the linky.. lol)

For some reason it looks like it could have come out of the old Chaos Engine video game, I really loved that game.

Hope you carry on and skin the whole thing in a steampunk style, it's a style lacking in winamp skins,Unison Brainstormed is the only one that comes to mind..

yeah.. unison brainstorm is one of my alltime fav skins.. though it wont be anything like it.. though i would love the style..

im aiming for a weird device/machine/contraption kinda thing.. trying a lot ofthing and deleting a lot of things aswell.. since some things dont match my idea..

we will see when this thing will get some shape.. lol

looks good so far, i'd be cool if you could add some kind of exhaust to it, so like the volume bar could be the smoke or something

even some kind of static steam would look nice

also, try changing up the fluids inside the tubes it'd be nice if the had some kind of liquid like edge, somewhat wavy maybe

Sexy.

Too bad it's not modern, it would look slick having the non-filled (or even the filled) tubes semi transparent.

Suggestion for a name: Series of tubes, or The Internet.

Do you intend to make it a mostly transparent skin, or some type of background?

Just don't make it transparent, that will suck big time, looks good with a background, even a plain one...

Yeah this looks great. I agree with the idea about a steam vent for the volume bar . And yeah, make a background, maybe some sort of boiler room scene or something.

I remember this one! I'd love to see it finished. I'm still disappointed there aren't more steampunk-type Winamp skins.
