FireFaust II

I've been quiet along time playing with winamp3 and didn't think I would do another skin really...well at least publish it...and well, I kinda fell into a remaking some of my older skins thing...This one will be published...I'm just curios as to the thoughts on my new main window...

I think the bright red is a little too much for me, personally. I like the overall design, especially the volume and balance areas, but that red kills my eyes

You thought I was dead, didn't you?

Indeed....I may tone it a bit done or desaturate about 50% not sure yet...depends on how the eq/mb/gen/genex/ml/avs blend.

Renamed and changed...

The Main is pretty much in finished state as well as the eq..the other windows will flow just as this.

Name is now: Staufeht [St-ow-fet]

Somewhat unoriginal but, getting there.

Anyways...much different yet, similar to some past skins...

Thank You,

I've been so inactive as a direct result of a few things:

1. I decided that I had to stop skinning until I could master my own skillz...

2. My skins by far were always lacking in my own mind, so I had to learn what it meant to be detailed and find my own design within that process.

3. I only worked only collaborative projects...namely, with peacemaker (of breedart).

After careful review of my past skins and comments from a great many individuals I have started remixing if you will my own skins changing and remaking them with the pleuthora of skills that I have acquired through my many dealings and failures...

In this skin is an example of a skin being remade that definately needs it as well as another that I am currently pursuing...that I really don't think needs a new thread...

Note: The original skins was Titanium Sky by [The Only Lynx] Submitted to the remix skin contest on 1001 and now, being revised and redone to make it right...It really sucked...both of which can be found on 1001skins.com

Another

The Woodshop by The Only Lynx: Found on this site and 1001 was a decent enough skin, but I thought I could do better and well, a collaboration started with him. This never completed as a loss of my computer etc forwent a conclusion...

Well, The Woodshop Elite never came to...however, I never forgot about that skin and have a nearly complete base which is one of the follow up projects tspmix or wse2 will be done soon....

Note: The pic is yet unfinished and using only some similar fonts to what were available from the first...though, I have changed the background textures on much of the skin...and likely much more of the [white] letters/numbers/cbuttons etc will change...

Here is the updated view of this skin...

Which would you like to see first?

Well, i was going for wood but, found a copy of wse original and will complete that one...after these two.

I have this as my new version...no longer wse v2.0

bte v2.0 (easy change) Breed Type Experiment v2.0 (original one sucked...) Never submitted...now I have got this one as a main.bmp Should be interesting to say the least.

Dunno what the hell its going to be like when complete but, the challenge is in doing it.

Any chance of updates to your Millenium skins? I always liked the looks of those. BTW, looking good so far.

Sure, I may get into my Millenium Series Skins again...Though, I will have to look into them with more than a simple thought. As many of the reworks take quite some time.

all done on bte v2.0 - will not release though. Looks good but, I think I will put it on my skin site only and maybe a few others sites....v3.0 will be released...which is basically the same skin but, updates to the visual elements....Here is a preview of the work I am doing on it...


Note the color shift is to show the diff colors I could do but, not sure on yet. (gradient hue layers rock)

Err, you mean.....the entire spectrum? Gee, don't limit yourself like that!

Looks good

I've been told that metal is all played out...Though, looking at the color spectrum and how I setup the gradients it just may be possible to setup the skin as I show it... hmm

Yeah, sliders will be animated slides will be similar to my x-asereht Skin (collab w/ peacemaker). The buttons, currently will likely be something very akin to a toggle button like what I have on phoenix (another one being remade.)

Though, I just formatted my machine...suxors (so I have to download this 24bit png to continue and get some of my skins back from my webserver...thank god I backed up alot of them...).

So, I should have something completed soon for this.

I like the lightness of the blue. It looks almost like light is blowing out, like taking a picture of a lamp or a window. It looks nice.

Closer

This is closer still to what I am looking for...I'm still concerned on the number area...the buttons I think are going to be push downs like on an old tape recorder. Though, this will be a bit more work I think the effect will be seemless with most of the design. The main area will need a bit of fine tuning...ie Some areas to darken...I'm thinking on a lot of additions to the glass window area...Though, try to keep it uncluttered as this effect will be carried over to the eq and I will need to make them equal yet constant.

sigh

Its also likely that the posbar will change a bit as I like the titlebar with the bluebar but, not fitting so well to duplicate it in the posbar...this may just turn into a glass fx area like the main, though slightly darker...not sure.

Experimentation

I'm currently experimenting on the design...I like where some of its going though, other parts could definatly be changed as I've seen it in other places on other skins...but, hey...whats experimentation for anyways...heh.

Note the white lines are marks for outside cut areas...so I can fill with the dark-blue/purple type color...insides will be as they are...my thought here is to provide an unusual appereance to that area as it will break up the linear style everything is set to at present...Damn I'm too linear...pfft

Went backwards...

Here is the current SS of the then named: BTE v3.0 which has been renamed: Axlar being made for The Only Lynx: Axlar.


Main and Eq are totally done...playlist is hacked up and coming along but, is causing alot of headaches.

Note the titlebar of the eq still has some work and I will be changing the textual there to EQ when I finish my pledit.

Remaking JadeTube

I've started redesign on JadeTube and so far I have used some of my artwork from slickstyle (titlebar) - this will be somewhat different on the top bar...and other areas...but, overall this skin is still pretty much unique in all ways...though, I definately feel the beauty coming from this one...here is the ss if you feel like looking.
