it looks damn cool! but most of the lines look wobbly and stuff like you may have hand drawn them. maybe try redoing the lines and it will look alot more pro

Venom was done in 3ds max then has a few PS layers on it. the jaggies are from rendering. I smooth then out with ps as i go on.

Thanks for the kind words.

(Above should read Nvader not Nvision, in first paragraph)

Placed the Cbuttons added glass effects, electricity from the prongs or fangs. Please comments on how it looks. Should i make the glass area smaller? Maybe add a shutter over the glass.

I love this skin, I really like the 3D feeling, try to not blow it out,
Probably these things u know:
-Buttons needs work, colors don't fit
-Do u think how are u gonna do with that rays?
-Colors needs to be polished i think... don't u?

This is a rough idea of how i saw the skin working.

The play button and what-not would be located where i've deleted those pretty white circles. The little lines on the right of the LCD would represent our vis', and obviously the title to the left of it...

Still a little empty space on the left to place in the 'thinger' links and...crap...

You're funny dlinkwit this was just 5 mins thinking, just a simple suggestion.
Only QH can decide what to do and what goes where, we're only suggest
but I like the whole 3D model cause has great fill and nice textures and design ( a bit big but I like it )

My problem with placing the 'Play/Next/Back/Stop' buttons in that position, is they look...

1: Extremely cramped; And this could easily be fixed if done right.

2: In order to make any space, he would have to make the buttons straight, similar to how you drew them. Unfortunately his skin is very far from having straight lines plagueing it...

If i didnt suck at Graphics so much, i might try and see what other possible combinations i think would work. But...

I look forwarf to seeing the final product here.

ok, i dont really like this.

1). your choice of colour doesnt suite my tastes
2). I can see you are trying for 3d, but it doesnt look 3d too me.
3). its quite jagged, and you'll probably fix it up, but Im just saying
4). i think thats about it...

In general it looks quite the n00bish - so far

1) I like your choice of colors.
2) It does look 3D to me.
3) Nothing wrong with jagged edges.
4) I think that I'm gonna like it.

Look, i'm offering my personal opinion, nothing more. If you cant deal with it, its probably best you stay off forums, as for the most part, opinions run rampant.

If he was offended by me putting in my two cents, he could have told me.

project un-named

I started workin on this skin, based on the TV Series American Chopper (Spider Bike). I was going to call it Venom. I since dropped the project. The premise was to click on the spider and the metal web would disappear, and show the player. The minimode would have a dancing spider with 8 animations that danced to the music beat. I actually spend 3 days designing in march.

Qh, move on the other, let the last you attached for another project.
Design 1 skin at a time (not like me)

the last one could be a nice Flash interface for a website.
As skin it wouldn't be so ergonomic in my opinion.

Ah, its pleasant to see intelligence runs rampant on a forum that requires so much skill to be a part of.

I'll just try and help people anymore. Because that will help improve skins.

EQ and redid Cbuttons

It looks sorta Geigerish now I dont know if I will keep the Eq the way it is, but I think the Cbuttons look better.

Vag-The unnamed project wont go on unless someone wants it. I just posted that here so the work didnt go without some kind on merit.

i think, everything's fitting together but the whole thing around the eq is a bit dark and you almost can't see the three buttons on the lower right.
