/me finishes catching up.
Prepare for a pretty long post:
Everyone has already said WOW!
so I'll skip that bit
Once again you've come up with a great, very original skin. I love the smooth curves.
It's a very very detailed skins, there's loads of things going on across the skin. The main window is starting to become crowded. When I was looking at it, it took me a moment to distinguish what the controls were, but I'll get back to that in a moment.
The grid cylinder things on the titlebar look slightly out of place. As if they're part of a different machine, holding onto SS. They seem a little square. Maybe you could round off one corner and sharpen the other.
Nice colour choices, but the mass of grey starts to hurt after a while
. Seeing as it's called "Solar Storm", a little splash of low (I mean, very low) saturation orange could look good. Maybe on the wings, to give a feeling of flames.
The PL / EQ buttons are quite saturated compared to the rest of the skin. But that might be something you meant to do?
For the CButtons: That curved thing with "Solar" written on it, it's got a square cross-section, right? You could have cubes cut into it of the same material as the sphere on the EQ. And a symbol floating in the middle of each.
What are the vol/bal bars gonna do? Are you gonna have dials again, or something even more impressive
Some general things:
The black lines around everything make it look almost cartoony, rather than realistic. Unless it's ridiculously hard to do, I think that it'd look smoother with all of them gone. If not gone, then not completely black.
Are the wings supposed to be round or like an aeroplane wing? If they're supposed to be round, then the shading should get darker faster, to show that they aren't flat. Like so:
I'll probably think of loads more later
I'm guessing he's male, seeing as he's got a g/f (I think): Kim.[/edit]
