Since I have been working long days, I should catch up on this post:
(My original message: These skins are for rating. Please use the star method WinAmp uses. Also, if you are not a fan of Pokemon and you feel that you have nothing but negative things to say, don't make a topic addition. I have worked very hard and long on these skins and saying bad things on the topic itself will hurt.)
This was directed towards the Pokemon bashers. There are some freaks out there that have bad things to say about these little critters that I don't think should be said.
Do you want "kind" comments? Or truthful comments?
I want your honest opinion. I feel that is the best way to make the best skin.
Hmmm.....so let me get this straight...you only want to hear from fans of Pokemon, and then you only want to hear good things from fans of Pokemon?
No, I want to hear from everyone. The many fans of this skin (which previous releases saw) have been waiting for this version to be finished. I added many new features and I have gotten very kind remarks from the fans. I honestly don't mind if non-fans make comments, that was my original intent; an unbiased opinion.
Oh my god. I looked back at the old past, and he was upset that he didn't get 5 stars?!?!
Wouldn't you? Yes, I was upset. But I took the constructive critisizm. Which I am doing now. There are many improvements on the skin, and there will be more. That is why I posted it.
I'm just curious ... how is one supposed to critique a skin without having a critical comment? If'n ya ask fer feedback, don't go bein' upset when ya actually be receivin' some.
Read the first comment
I don't see the point. Why would you release a pokemon skin at all? And if you DO, then why do it after the so called pokemon "hype" is over?
So? I am still a big fan of Garfield and Friends. That cartoon hasn't been made since '93. If I like it, I will watch it. If I thought paint drying was fun, I would too.
I wouldn't mind a *good* Pokémon skin er two.
Trying my best Duk, tryin' my best
After the initial run is done then I will make more... Bulbasaur, Pichu, Squirtle... The whole gang.
Thanks for all the comments, I will incorporate them!
Let me go into detail about the 'Evolutions Of' series:
Everything is initially done on Skinner.
But not the way you would think. Everything in the templates is redone and remade by me. This saves time and is not much to do. Basically I am saving time on layering! I basically make the background pictures, then import them into skinner where I have some of the shading premade. It is a very intelligent setup.
The Evolution of this Skin
has been a long one but many additions have been done. Now since most of the technique is done, buttons can be totally revamped as well as the AV and MB aspects. There is not much skin there to skin too, so I will have to maybe work on a way to make it look kickass.
Button skinning sucks!
The pokeballs were perfect because I could work around everything, but making buttons look awesome in the other windows is a wee bit harder. I made these buttons myself (because skinner buttons suck) and I also changed some of the skinner buttons around for my own sick and dimented ways. I am pretty strapped on ideas for buttons themselves... I might think of something though for v5.
The Future of Evolutions Of
might be bleak if no one is willing to support and help me with ideas, suggestions or even graphical work. I have Adobe here, so I am not strapped for graphical work but if anyone who wants to add comments, please do so. If you think you can help with graphical work, please feel free to e-mail me.
My main goal is to make everyone happy and make a 5-star skin. I hope to see 5 stars too, because I believe it will show my skins are worth something... That and I still think the collection is the best Pokemon skin collection out there!
Seasons Greetings for 2000 and 2001,
