Mucha's Job (beta) a.k.a. my first skin

Hey.

I just ‘finished’ my first skin and thought I’d share it with you all. There are a few things to note though...

First, the skin is not completed, however, it suits me well for now and I’ll be making changes when I have more time.

Second, the Playlist is in a non-resizable drawer. In the final version of the skin, a resizable playlist drawer will be optional as well as an undocked playlist.

Also, this skin is large. If you like small skins this is probably not the skin for you.

Speaking of small skins, the window-shade mode is not yet functional. In fact it hasn’t even hit the drawing table yet.

I don’t have the pay version of Winamp so I suspect the recorder isn’t skinned. (I have a keen sense of the obvious)

Anyway,I think that’s about it. As I said it’s not complete but I’m cool with it. Comments welcome.

BTW: GeoCities won't accept .wal as a valid file extension -- feel free to change it from a zip to a wal.

:edit:
Looks like my screen-shot attachment didn't work out right so if you want to see it click here.

yep, remove that std vis in the background and make your own animated vis, then skin would rock much more great skin.

agree very nice , like the use of the stencil effect on the main pic to the background!
yep a custom vis would suit this, you could have say a shimerring effect to match the colours.
not taken a look at the inners but would be cool if the pattern stuff was a seperate layer for colour themes

Hey, thanks for the ideas! I’ll work on some hover states for the buttons tonight. As for the custom vis, I agree that it would be cool, but as I’ve never attempted it before I suspect it might be a while in the making... Know of any good examples to learn from?

Nice ORIGINAL design my friend, well done!
Some ideas:
Make the lady's portrait animate or have some effects on it? (something like overlays, glows in random places etc.)
Doublicate and make some parts thinner in the outer round part, so with some glow+noise effect in Photohop and some brushes to look like old metal in some of the parts....

Use Smoodge/Burn tool in Photoshop to get some good results (if you use a Wacom tablet it's a fast trick, with mouse needs more time and CTRL+Zs (Undos) )

Hope that gives some ideas, I like it's originality, keep it up!
