I really like what you have so far, just the blue frames appear to bold for my taste and the text.bmp could be 1 pixel lower.
For the bars.. no real idea. I'd like to see the gradient colors of the viscolor there, in a nice shape i cant define.

Keep it up.

I made a Linkin' Park skin once.

I don't like Linkin' Park.

This is better than my skin.

Please try to be a little bit more original.

Linkin Park v1 by Kuki (883)

And don't use parts of other people's skins without telling the original author. thanks.

Ah. I was about to point that out. I recognized the volume/balance bars and the silhouettes... He can't really be blamed for ripping the logos though, but the rest is blatantly obvious.

Nice skin dude883.
Spire, maybe you better start from scratch with an own idea, instead of getting 'inspired' and later be called a ripper.
Or get inspired by other pictures than skins, pics of HiFi systems or CD covers.

"ripping" doesnt just mean you took the bitmaps from another skin.

you can make everything from scratch, change colors and add few extras....but you still took his exact ideas, shapes and even placement of the pics....

dude883?....but he already said no.

using the skin for your own use is fine i guess, but you wont be able to submit it to winamp.com or other skin sites.

Use it for your own enjoyment, use it to improve your skinning knowledge, use it to improve your photoshop (or whatever prog you use) skills.

However, submit it at winamp.com and I'll come eat your children

Simple, just rename the .WSZ of his skin into a .ZIP, and unzip.

just cuz u can't submit it doesn't mean that you shouldn't do it. sometimes you see a skin and you think that theres on little thing wrong with it. if you fix that thing for yourself, it'll not only look better to you but will also improve your skills in edititing. END OF METAPHOR

work on it anyway for your own use if you enjoy it just don't submit it

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

no need to roll your eyes, here's a part of the readme file that was in the .wsz archive:


(C) ALL GRAPHICS BY KUKI (except band logos and group pic). Please,
- DO NOT pass this skin as your work
- DO NOT publish this skin without my permission
- DO NOT use elements of my skins for your own projects
- you may edit this skin for PERSONAL USE ONLY

I think that was clear enough. I never claimed the logos as my own.

Don't try publishing it. It sounds like it will be too much like the other skin and on top of that it has already had a good deal of negative press, can only lead to more.
