you gotta allow more than 15 minutes for replies....some of us have jobs, go to school eat, sleep, etc..

pick an ugly green color for bg, and on top of that put darker green or black with a slightly offset drop shadow
that's sorta like a digital watch..

most lcds in skins looks nothing like real lcds, so it doesnt' much matter, you can call just about anything lcd

Which program are you using?

If its paint shop pro i might be able to help.

Im making some gfx tutorials, and one of them is an lcd behind glass. Download the psp file, unzip it and if you look at the layer where the weird looking A is, you'll see its just a standard shape, with a soft 2 pixel drop shadow, set to soft light blend mode.

Just in case you dont have psp, i've attached a pic of what it looks like....you wont be able to adjust the layers to see how it works, but i think you'll get the idea.

Hope it helps a bit.

Could be anywhere from a week or two to a few months.

I need to find some webspace for it, write up all the tutorials, take screenshots and stuff, make a site for it etc. So it could take some time.

Can I contibute atmo? I'd love to write some gfx tuts.

lcd's are easy. You just need to get familiar with blend modes and masks. Colors are important too.

Nice PSP file (I like it better without the dots [layer15 hidden] and with layer 5 hidden too [diff colour]). Very nice but also very complicated. Perhaps for the real thing you would name your layers

It seems like Atmo's avatar could use one extra frame...it jumps just a bit at the transition.
