I have continue on and gotten to the main...I think I will be added some of the goodness from the eq to main...what you guys think? go back or just continue on...Seems as though as I progress it gets a bit more complicated...heh.

:: At present I am thinking of changing the center glass buttons to be metal covers and their on state to be the glass look ::


Nevermind went with a combination...lol.

Hopefully, this looks well enough to continue usually I'm pretty darned hardup for ideas at this stage but, seems my brain is having some kind of creative explosion...

I figure I shall show you what I'm saying and give you a very updated screenshot of the current look n feel:

Updated to include the playlist...the button area here will be somewhat of a touchpad with button labels a bit dark and below them similar to my last submission.

The Text will be a dark orange and highlights will be about 4 shades darker. Playlist stacks are an unknown at this point and the stretch is already setup.

Yes, I am aware that I will need to bring the color of the cbuttons down somehow...just not sure how yet...I may work on the slide area to incorporate the glass effect of the cbutton row of the main...Still unclear of that direction.

Anyways...enough ramble ramble.

Yes, that is in fact what it is and it has been tested to fit within the confines of the confines of the plstacks....Works...and that shown is just the 'off' version.

I'll give you an A for effort.

It reminds me of an 80s death metal concert. Too bad I'm not into that kind of music garret.

Ouch. It is one hell of a skin, though, and I usually don't like metal skins at all.

If it's only 1px, how 'bout just resizing it? It shouldn't screw it up too bad (where's the smilie for crossing your fingers...)

If he resizes it, it might compromise the whole integrity of the design/throw the button animations off. And we can't have that can we?


Great skin GJ!

Resizing in photoshop is rather a crap shoot...as the whole thing would loose most of the texture I've worked so hard to ensure looked right. As a result, when I started cutting it I didn't look at it correctly at first (as I had actually resized it to fit 275w). The original and my resize were quite different imagine for a second squezing your skin by 1px w/ all of those 1px textures the whole thing suddenly become quite blurry and unusable....

My positioning lost and the image blurred means that none of the skin was panning out correctly to be cut. Horizontally positioned elements were no longer mapping out correctly.

Thats intentional...heh.

as the PL is stretchable...I have no issues on it...

375x116 is now the correct dimensions for each window except for the pl window. Its currently 375x117

well as joe has stated i asked if i could continue on with the skin, as like most have said it looks like a great concept, something that should not go to waste..

here is a ss of what changes ive made. unfortunately he left me with a lot of areas to re position, and still more to correct.

although i've added parts that would differ to joe's original styling, i hope that it doesn't appear to diverge too much from what he has done.

As luigi said, it looks good, and you've managed, so far at least, to keep it looking a lot like the original.

Skin 2

a second collaborative skin is in progress at the same time that this one is being developed...though, of course peacemaker still has to work on it, and actually agree...but as usual he always backs me up...heh.

Here is chaomess.

Its in Gif and will likely look like crap...but, hey thats all good....you'll get the idea...

Note this is just a base design and not including the buttons or locations for buttons / slides etc...but, for the most part you should get an idea of where I am going. On the cbuttons looks like I may be using something from a skin designed by theonlylyx as a contributed element of the skin from him.

thanks lynx (axlar)
